Homework: WB 05.06.23

Homework and reminders for this week:

It's lovely to see the children after the half-term break. I hope you all had a lovely time - what glorious sunshine we've had! Our first day back has been based on one of our keys to learning. We have been in different groups learning about being a 'reflective learner' in all the curriculum areas. More photos to share from our day today will follow - keep an eye on the Crossdale News for this towards the end of the week.

 *Your weekly spelling and ‘special homework’ activity can be found in your child’s purple book which will come home with you on Tuesday. Our special homework this week is linked to phonics and reading. Spelling Shed is set up and ready to go also so please log in and play games using that website. Our spellings this week are words containing the /ph/ and /wh/ spelling.

*I sent phonics videos to some parents last week relating to gaps in phonics assessments - hopefully they all found you well - the links will last for 6 weeks.

*Phonics screening check - is next week. Please read the blog I've done on this if you haven't already.

*Try to keep in the green zone on doodle by using it every day. There are assignments set every few days to help keep our learning in class really fresh. I have set these periodically to return to concepts a few days / weeks / months from teaching deliberately to build that confident knowledge. Well done Penguins - I can see that many of you are enjoying playing games and completing your assignments. 

*Ensure your child reads regularly to an adult. Please keep the book bag books for a few days so that your child can re-read the text. This helps to build fluency, and they will be able to show you their story voice! Don’t forget to fill in your reading journeys to keep track of what you are reading.

*New topic homework – due by the end of the half-term. I'll send a copy home in homework books but this is also available in our half term overview blog.

*Please remember that your child needs their full Forest Schools kit each Monday – children will be going out whatever the weather.

All of your other, whole school updates can be found on the Crossdale News blog.
