04 November 2016

Posted on Saturday 05 November 2016 by Mrs Valentine

Please be aware that children in Year 1 will be issued new spellings each week – this is so your child’s spellings keep up with the phonics teaching going on in class each day.

Your child is aware of their group and a coloured sticker is on their homework book should you need a little reminder:

Your child will be quizzed on these spellings on Friday 11 November.

It’s half-term, so there’s no homework. Enjoy the holiday instead: hunt down a collection of chestnuts on a walk at Roundhay Park, enjoy a cinema trip on a damp day, go further afield and visit somewhere new…

Whatever you do, have a good break.

This week, your child is to continue practising their spellings by tackling the spelling challenge.

Your child is required to write a sentence which contains one of their spellings – in total they will write eight sentences in their homework book.

Be on the look out for capital letters, finger spaces, full stops and have your child read their sentences aloud to check it makes sense.

Have a happy and healthy holiday

It’s the summer holidays at last, so there are no homework or spelling activities. Enjoy the holidays instead!

Does your child spend less time outdoors than prison inmates? A survey suggests three-quarters of children do, as the time spent playing in parks, woods and fields has shrunk dramatically due to lack of green spaces, digital technology and parents’ fears.

Research shows that playing outdoors promotes social skills, improves vision, reduces stress, increases attention span and provides vitamin D.
