I hope you all had a great weekend.  Homework and news for this week as follows:

Spelling – Your child will be issued with their spelling lists for term 1 on Monday.  This week the children should work from list 1 which includes sh, ch, th and 4 common words.  Over the course of the week they should copy these words out twice, choose 5 words and write 5 interesting sentences and find 2 new words with one of the chosen sounds.  This should all be completed in their spelling homework jotter and handed back in on Friday.

Reading – The children will be issued with their core reading books over the next few weeks.  This week and next, I will be individually reading with the children to check their bookband level.

This week the children will start their personal reading challenge.  This is where they will predict how many personal choice books they will complete over term 1 and try to achieve this target number.  This will be books that the children have chosen themselves for pleasure.  This can be from home or the class library.  These can be read during class quiet/ paired reading time and at home.

Maths -Maths homework will start in the next few weeks.  However, until then the children can continue to practise their mental maths skills.  This link is a great website for practising timestables:



P.E this session will be on Monday and Thursday.

Have a great week.

Mrs Fulton/ Mrs MacKenzie
