In Willow Class, one of the biggest Homework tasks is reading with your child. Many parents indeed don't see this as Homework but enjoy spending time sharing books with their children as often as they can throughout the week.
Reading with your child, including practising their phonics with their RWI books, really does help to build an early love of reading and children are of course rewarded for this with Dojo points.
All Year 1 children now have access to Spelling Shed and a separate letter has been sent home about this new and exciting way for children to learn their spellings. Every week, there will be a taught spelling session in school and then children will have an assignment matching the lesson on Spelling Shed. Please support your child with these games and activities. The login details can be found at the front of your child's Pirate Spelling Book.
Children will also still receive their Pirate themed Spelling Books to practise spellings set with the more traditional, Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check method. Details of this can be found at the front pages of these books. Children receive Dojos in school for Spelling Practise!
Information has already been sent out about our Lending Library. Borrow a game or activity on a Monday evening to share with family at home.
Practise counting on and back, practice counting in steps of 2, 5 and 10. Counting and recognising numbers to 100 (and beyond) for our Year 1 children is one of our main focuses this year. Below are a few songs used to try and help us to remember.
Below, you will find some links to some games that can be found online that will help to support your child with their learning. As we use them in school, more will be added. Don't forget that children can log in to their Purple Mash accounts from home too and will find lots of things to do.
