‘Pick n Mix’ Topic Homework
We have given the children ‘Pick n Mix’ Topic homework. We would like the children to complete at least 3 items from the list given, during each half term. We love seeing any topic work that the children have completed at home and encourage them to bring these in for show and tell.
Each week, while the school is closed, we will be uploading a Home Learning grid with activities for all curriculum areas that can be done at home. Along with the Home Learning grid we will also upload resources to accompany all the activities.
The children should all have home learning books that can be used for any work they do at home.
When the children are writing, remind them about their , letter formation, capital letters, full stops, question marks and exclamation marks, speech marks and commas and apostrophes . Their spellings are attached under the home learning section.
if your children need any more books allocated on Bug Club or you need further activities allocated on Mathletics then please contact us via email.
Please also remember to practice your 2, 5 10 and 3 times tables, using related division facts.
There are lots of activities on all curriculum areas on Purple Mash and the children will be assigned specific activities on the Home Learning grid.

Mystery Reader Volunteers Needed!
The aim of ‘Mystery Reader’ is to show children that adults love reading too so we would like to invite parents, grandparents or other family members to come into their child's class to read a children's story. This could be a book you particularly enjoyed reading when you were growing up, a current children's book brought from home or a book selected from the school library. The children will not know who is coming into their class for each session so it will be a surprise when their reader arrives.
We will be having ‘Mystery Reader’ sessions on Mondays, 2.50pm-3.10pm. If you would like to come in to be a mystery reader then please speak to Miss Bond or Miss Windle to book your slot.
We look forward to seeing you and hearing your stories!
