Homework WB 08/07/24


The children might have told you about our special voting at school to celebrate the general elections (and new prime minister) last week. To help the children understand how voting works, we gave all children at school a token and a choice of four treats they might like. Linking to our British Values (democracy), all children have voted and hopefully have a better understanding of the voting process for adults! We will see which one has the most votes tomorrow and then which treat has been chosen. Stay tuned!

In our school summer production of 'The Greatest Show', Year 1 are going to be part of the travelling fair. I don't want to give away too many surprises, but we will showcase some amazing talents on stage! Please could the children bring in some brightly coloured clothes to join in with this for the week beginning 15th July. Please ensure clothes come into school in a bag labelled clearly with their name. We hope this will be easy to gather and encourage you not to spend money on this! We might even be able to gather some bits between parents to help if you're really struggling with bright clothes (or just a bright top is fine, too).

*Your 'special homework' for the week will be in homework books on Tuesday. 

*Spelling activity this week is linked to week 6 - Common Exception Words. These words are tricky because they don't follow a rule (or are spelling rules the children will learn much later on) but they are words that we will need to remember and come up a lot in their ideas and then writing. Perhaps you can think of some good ways to remember these words to help them stick - and children can share these in class. We will talk about different ideas in school as well as we return to spellings daily. All can be found on Spelling Shed and an activity will come home with you in your child's homework book.

*Please listen to your child read at least 3 times a week. Please ensure you return old books on either Monday or Thursday and we will make sure children have 2 new books on those days. Don't forget to send back the school swap books, too. We love having lots to choose from when we do book club!

*Try to stay in the green zone on doodle by completing your '5 a day' and your assignments that have been set by us. 

See you in the morning,

Mrs Jones
