Homework 📚 Update

Well done Squirrels, you all did a fantastic job on your spellings this week!

If you forgot to bring in your spelling book in on Friday, we can stick your new spellings in on Monday. 

Lots of you told me that you enjoyed playing the “O’Clock” game at home. I hope you enjoy cutting out your phonic dominoes this week, you could stick them in your homework book to show me.

Friday is Homework Day!

Here is a copy of the 'Ways to spell at home' idea sheet sent home this week

Have a try and decide which activity is most fun!

Please make sure both your spelling and homework books are in school on Fridays.

Writing our names

This week the children are really concentrating on writing both their names neatly. Lots of the class are SO close to getting their blue hand-writing pencil and this time of year is a great chance to get in a little extra practise at home...let them write their own cards and gift tags!

Let’s see who can get their pencil in the New Year.
