Happy Home Learning
We have been learning about pirates. Please help your child to make a ‘Treasure Hunt’ giving clues to find the treasure.
We have been learning about rhymes. Sing a nursery rhyme and change 2 words. (E.g. Humpty Dumpty sat on a hill – Humpty Dumpty had a friend called Bill).
Maths – Make a model using 3D shapes (e.g. a house).
Year 1 Homework
Over half term please practise segmenting and blending real and alien words (the made up words).
Go on Google and look up phonics screening check. Watch the phonics screening check training video (for teachers). This will help you guide your child and help them with the check which is after half term.
Year 2 Homework
Literacy – Over the holidays look for interesting poems about animals and practice reading them aloud.
Maths – Can you investigate a number and see the different numbers it will divide by?
e.g. 16 = 16 – 4 = 4
16 ÷ 2 = 8
Spellings – caught, catch, hopeful, wishful, careful, surprise
Class of the Week 12th May – 16th May 2014
Mrs Stothard’s class have done it again. With a level of 97.9% they are ‘Class of the Week’ again. Mrs Stothard is very proud of you.
We have received confirmation from The Local Education Authority that we have once again exceeded our expected attendance target of 95.5%. The level attained for April is 96.36%
Could we please remind parents/carers that if your child is absent from school you should contact school giving a reason for each day of absence. If we do not receive a message before 9.30am, we will contact you by text or telephone call. In certain circumstances and in view of our Safeguarding Policy, the Educational Welfare Officer may be asked to call at your home if we fail to make contact.
In view of the new leave of absence procedure for parents taking children out of school for holidays could we please remind you that a Special Leave of Absence Form must be completed even if the absence is for a single day. We would also like to inform you that since the new legislation was introduced, absence due to term time holidays has fallen significantly in our school. The figures below are for FS2, Y1 & Y2.
Every child is delighted when they earn a treat and we are thrilled to advise that FABSS have kindly agreed to sponsor our ‘Treasure Box’ which is an initiative to promote a love of reading with our children. When your child reads 3 times a week at home they will earn 1 stamp for their Home School Diary. Once they have earned 5 stamps they can visit the treasure box to dip for treasure. We thank FABSS for helping to keep this initiative alive and look forward to seeing many more happy faces visiting ‘The Treasure Box’.
