Newsletter & Homework
In addition to daily reading at home, children are provided with a yellow homework book that is sent home with them each Friday. In this you will see our class newsletter which details the areas of learning we have covered and the fun activities that the children have taken part in that week, along with any important reminders/information. The homework task will be detailed at the bottom of the newsletter and should take no longer than five/ten minutes. Homework should be supervised and/or supported by an adult. We kindly ask that homework books are returned by the following Wednesday to enable them to be marked and the next newsletter/homework added.
Our topics this half term will be Science, Spring and Growing, Minibeasts, Habitats, Weather and People Who Help Us. In Literacy we will be looking at sentence structure i.e. where on the page we should start our writing, finger spaces and full stops which will help the children work towards writing simple sentences independently. Our focus for Maths will be exploring numbers up to 20 which will include: adding and subtracting, doubling and halving and odds and evens.
Please see below a small list of websites that your child can visit to consolidate and extend his/her learning.
