To be returned to school on Tuesday 20th September 2022
Children are tasked with practising the letters that form the curly caterpillar family as shown on the sheet that they stuck into their homework books.
We ask that children read to a parent at least 5 times a week. If the children manage this, you will receive an additional sticker on your behaviour chart.
Don’t forget to sign and date the reading record book and record the number of pages read.
It is really important that the children are asked a mixture of questions by parents/carers. For now, try to focus on retrieval questions and make sure you practice scanning the text to find the answer.
Your child may receive specific sounds to practise at home. Also, please look out for sight words in your child's reading folder. These are the words that your child needs to practise reading by sight rather than sounding out.
For our topic homework this half term, the children can choose from the following tasks. You only need to complete one.
- Plant a seed or bulb and observe it closely as it grows. You could take photos.
- Carrying out a science investigation linked to plants. E.g. https://lessons4littleones.com/2018/04/19/plants-science-experiments-teaching-how-plants-grow/
- Design a poster showing what plants need to grow well.
- Go for a walk around your street / local area and draw a map.
- Identify the key human and physical features of your local area.
- Collect different types of leaves and natural materials and make Andy Goldsworthy inspired art.
We would like the children to bring their half-termly homework into school by Thursday 20th October. We will be looking to display the children’s homework in the hall and provide parents/carers the opportunity to view it at the end of the school day.
