In gym we have been working on our team building skills. We had to use communication and listening skills to help solve problems within teams.

General Information

Reading:  Pick a book from the library which you can read independently.  Read for at least 10 minutes each night (Monday to Thursday).  If you find the book a little too easy or difficult bring it back and exchange it for something more suitable. You should read the first page or 2 aloud to a parent to confirm it is at the correct level – then read silently.  You may keep the book over the weekend if you wish.  Ask Mum and Dad to sign the Homework record each night to confirm you have done your reading.

Spelling:  The word are a mixture of phonic based words and common words.  Targeted spelling will be introduced in term 2. Children should copy their spelling words out twice more in neat handwriting on a Monday night. On Tuesday- Thursday they can choose an activity from the activity sheet at the front of their spelling jotters. It is useful for the child to be tested by the parent on the Thursday night as they may be tested on spelling words on Friday.

Mental Maths: Children will be given a mental maths task. If instructions are required these will be provided.

Written Task:  This may be a maths game to play on the computer at home or a worksheet.

Occasionally children may be given homework relating to topic work, science or French.

Homework should not take more than 30 minutes per night to complete.  If it is taking longer than that please get in touch with me and I can offer suggestions to improve homework time.   Please remember to sign your child’s homework diary Monday – Thursday to evidence that homework has been done – they can then claim homework house points.
