HALF TERM HOME LEARNING

It is that time of the year again!

We can’t believe how fast this first term has gone! We would just like to say how fantastic you have all been and how well you have settled back into school after such a long break.

Everyone deserves a little time to rest and enjoy this short holiday, therefore Mrs Kettle and I have made the decision to not give any additional home learning this week. All we ask is that you continue to practise your spellings and times tables.

New spellings have been stuck into spelling journals and the practice test has also been added onto spelling frame. The spelling rules we would like you to focus on are rules 13-15. Those are words ending in -tion, -sion, -ssion, -cian and words with the /k/ spelt ‘ch’. These are words you have been practising this term already, so they should be very familiar to you.

Also don’t forget to use TT Rock Stars to help you with your times tables! It is a great opportunity to practise with your friends, compete against one another in games and rise up the ranks to gain rewards.

Have a lovely (and extra spooky) half term everyone!

Miss Foreman & Mrs Kettle

The children will always have a week to practise. This week we continue to explore spelling rule’s 13 & 14, but with words ending in -cian.

Wednesday/Thursday: Weekly home learning and TT Rockstar’s. The children will have a week to complete both activities. We encourage TT Rockstar’s little but often.

Spelling Frame and TT Rock Stars are a great opportunity for the children to play games while learning their spelling rules and times tables. So that we can see how much your children are doing at home, please make sure they log in before starting.

As we have given two weeks to complete the harvest loaf, no additional work apart from Spelling Frame and TT Rockstar’s will be given this week.

Thank you and stay safe,

Miss Foreman & Mrs Kettle
