Home Learning
Home learning books are given out on a Monday, to be returned the following Monday. The homework book will generally contain the spelling list for the week, a writing practice sheet to help learn spellings and a maths activity. Please use the book to best suit the home learning of your child.
Alongside the home learning books your child will bring home a variety of reading material. At any time this may include, reading books, phonic sentences used in class to further develop decoding skills and flash cards. 
There is no expectation for the children to read all reading material at once. Ten minutes of reading daily will really support the reading learning that takes place in school.
Any questions please ask and thank you so much for your support at home.
Today (Fri 4 Oct) in PSHE, we were thinking about what makes our classroom a lovely place to learn. Some ideas were
  • A quiet and calm room
  • Fun activities outside and inside
  • Someone to help us
  • All our friends learning together
  • A tidy classroom
Monday 7th October
Making puppets for storytelling.
Monday 14th October
We started our poetry recitals today.
The aim is to develop pleasure in reading poetry and rhymes and to build up a short repertoire of rhymes that can be recited by heart.
When rehearsing in preparation for the performance please
  • support your child to speak clearly
  • teach them to pronounce words correctly
  • encourage them to look at the audience
