Good morning! What a busy week that was! I hope all of the children are having a well deserved rest. Please keep reading for a note of our homework and reminders for the coming week.
Sounds: Sound cards for “y” and “x” will be added to the book bags. Please continue to practice all of the sounds learned to date. These should be looked over as often as possible at home. To challenge your child, please ask them to think of/find something that begins with or contains that specific sound.
Word Walls: Please continue to check over these with your child as often as possible as this will build their confidence in reading the words independently. Only the words highlighted in yellow should be practiced. Your child should also be able to use these words correctly in a sentence. Once we are seeing your child do so, with confidence, we will highlight the box green.
Reading: New reading books will be sent home by Tuesday. Please read them with your child, discussing the story/words. The children should sound out the words and, where necessary, use the picture cues to help them “read” the words.
All library books should now have been returned to school. If you still have a library book at home, please send this back to school this week.
New personal home readers will be issued on Friday.
Listening & Talking: We will be performing our Scottish poems to the class this week. We are looking forward to hearing the children.
Maths: Please complete another activity on the Bingo sheet. Once completed, please sign and date the sheet beside the chosen task.
H&WB: Please continue to practice your chosen home target. If you have not yet completed the target sheet, please do so this week so we are aware of your child’s chosen target. Please click here for further details.
- Active Schools clubs start up again this week. Please remember that your child may still have a school dinner on club days if they wish. They will just eat once the club has finished.
- P.E. will be on Monday and Friday. Please remember long hair should be tied back and earrings removed or covered
- Book bags should be checked each evening for homework and any letters which may have been issued. These letters should be removed from the book bag.
- Read and Munch will be on Friday.
As always, if you have any questions regarding homework, please do not hesitate to contact us. This can be done via the blog or your child’s book bag.
