Week beginning 7th September 2015
'Shipshape and Bristol fashion'
First, I’d like to congratulate all the children for their amazing start in Ash class. They have demonstrated great learning behaviours, listening and social skills. Conratulations to our first Ruby power winners, Esme and Todd, as nominated by the class. What amazing learners we have in Ash class!
Please ensure your child's yellow home learning book is in school every Friday.
There will be a weekly:
1) ‘Spelling’ task relating to the week’s phonics lessons. There will also a pair of homophones to discuss and two 'tricky' words that do not follow a spelling pattern.
2) Handwriting task relating to the previous week's handwriting lesson.
3) Maths task. We are focusing on number bonds that total 10, 20, 50 and 100. Please practise the use of money with 10p, 20p, 50p and £1 coins, challenging your child to work out the change.
and 4) Daily reading at home. Please hear your child read every day, recording comments and ‘wow’ words or phrases that you have discussed. I do not allow children to change their book without evidence that they have read it to an adult first!
Who is Isambard Kingdom Brunel?
Answering this ‘big question’ is an optional home learning task to be collected inMonday 19th October.
