Foundation 2 Homework

Literacy – We have been talking about our favourite things at Sundown and have discussed the storybook characters that we saw. Ask your child if they have a favourite character. Can they draw them? Can they write a sentence describing this character? Remember to write down the sounds that you hear in the words. Please help your child to sound each letter individually and then blend them together to read the following words: thick, zag, chip, quick, way, play. If possible write each word. Our sounds this week are ng, nk ,ng, ay, ee. Please use your diaries to practise them.

Numeracy – this week we have been learning about matching numerals to quantities e.g. if you have a written 3, finding 3 of an item. Practice doing this at home, you could also draw amounts and write the correct number next to them.

Year 1 Homework

Morrison’s Christmas Decorations

It’s time to get creative again! We are thrilled that Morrison’s have once again invited our children to design and make the decorations for their Christmas tree which is placed in the store entrance. Last year the tree looked beautiful thanks to the efforts of our children. Please encourage your child to make a decoration at home (any material/colour of their choice) and bring it to school by Wednesday 3rd December. Morrison’s have asked for pictures of ‘Christmas Scenes’, which should also be brought to school before next Wednesday. We can’t wait to see your creations! Please add your child’s name and class so we know who our fabulous artists are. The best designer from each year group will earn a dip in the treasure box!
