Newsletter 3 – Summer Term 30th April 2015

FS1 Happy Home Learning
The children have enjoyed our visit to The Yorkshire Wildlife Park this week where we saw lots of different animals. We would like your child to draw a picture of their favourite animal.
FS2 Homework
Literacy – We have had a very exciting week looking at the animals at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. We would like the children to write a list of all the animals that they saw during our visit and then write a sentence about their favourite one.
We are helping the children to develop fluency and understanding when reading. Please help them by firstly looking at any tricky words in their book and by encouraging them to read and re-read some words/sentences. Please ask them questions about what they have read. Can they answer you correctly?
Numeracy – Please show your child the coins in your purse and help them to recognise and describe them. Let them help you when shopping to select the right ones when paying for goods.
Year 1 Homework
Literacy – Please visit www.gov.uk and practise past phonic screening papers ready for the test in June.
Numeracy – Can you explain heavy and light objects at home? Maybe you could find a recipe to bake and look at the weight of the ingredients.
Year 2 Homework
Spellings – saw, two, buy, here, there, does, quietly, quickly
Maths – Practise counting in multiples of 2,3,4,5 & 10. Challenge yourself!
Literacy – Can you write an animal poem? Use adjectives, similes, alliteration and adverbs.
Sponsored Spell
We are very proud of our children for successfully completing their sponsored spell challenges. The amount raised so far is £721.90 which will enable us to purchase new reading materials. Please send any outstanding money to school as soon as possible.
