Whole School Homework: The Environment

​As part of our half-term focus on the environment the whole school homework will be to design and make a diorama using recycled materials. In July they will be displayed in the school hall with prizes for the most innovative and interesting entries.

Please see some examples of dioramas below (it is really just a scene in a box!)

Good luck and we can’t wait to see what you produce!

Place value in Squirrel Class

We have been learning place value in maths. We have been choosing 2-digit numbers and working out how many tens and how many loose ones are in them. We also started look at numbers beyond 100 today! Here we are using dienes and counters to help us. 

Homework due Thursday 2nd May

We will be recapping lots of sounds next week in phonics.  We will be looking at the ‘ur’, ‘ir’ and ‘er’ sounds.  Is there a rule about where these sounds come in a word?

Spellings this week are therefore:

herb, term, after, surf, church, curl, turtle, first, thirteen, circus

Can you put them into sentences once you have learnt them?

Easter holiday homework

There will be no spellings over the Easter holidays but please make sure you are reading every day.

We would love to see some book reviews or for you to come in after Easter and tell us all about your favourite book you read over the break.  You can also challenge yourself to do lots of reading not in a book, for example a newspaper or a road sign!

It is also always good to keep practising those tricky (high frequency) words in the reading diary and counting in twos, fives and tens.

Have a fantastic, well-deserved break and well done for all your hard work throughout the Spring Term.

Homework due Thursday 4th April

We are going to be recapping all of the tricky words on Thursday for spellings.  All of the tricky words can be found at the front of the reading diary, but we won’t be telling you which ones we will be testing.  Do you think you know them all?

We are learning about measurement.  Can you compare the weight of three different things in your house? Can you use the words: light, lighter, lightest, heavy, heavier and heaviest?

Have a lovely weekend!
