Good evening, I hope you all had a great weekend. Homework and news for the week as follows:
This week our spelling sound is schwa O. This can be where an O in a word sounds like a different letter. As in the word apostrophe. The second O is often pronounced as a U sound.
We also have 4 common words to learn. Here are your tasks for each night.
Monday – Write/ type the words out twice. Remember to look for sounds, special friends and distant friends.
Tuesday – Choose 2 words and write a rhyming word for each. Choose 2 words and write a shoot word for each. For example a shoot word for colour could be colouring. We have added a suffix (an ending). You could also add a prefix (a word at the beginning) to a word. For body you could have nobody.
Wednesday – Choose 5 words and write a sentence for each word.
Thursday – Revise your words for your spelling quiz on Friday.

A jacket has been lost in the playground today, it is a Next dark blue bomber jacket and has a name attached. We would be much obliged if you could keep a lookout incase someone has brought it home by mistake!
Just to clarify some confusion, children should now come to school wearing shoes appropriate to wear on the field. We will not be changing shoes during the school day. Please also remember to bring in appropriate rainwear as we will be outside in the rain.
