Class 1 Homework Challenges - 22.03.19

Date: 22nd Mar 2019 @ 3:36pm

This week we have been getting assessments done so haven't been much in our normal routine! The children are doing really well and we reiterate that as long as we try our best there is nothing to be worried about (:

Maths - next week we are doing our maths assessments, any practise and recapping of key maths skills such as number bonds, adding and subtracting, the 2,5,10 times table, shape, money, anything you feel or may have noticed your child is struggling with would be very helpful. Pinterest has lots of lovely ideas for fun and easy maths games to make or do to practise these! Along with any we have suggested or done in the past.

Reading/Phonics - please continue to read with your child and complete their reading records. This makes it easier for us when changing books and listening to your child(ren) read as we know which to change and where they are up to in certain books. The children are making super progress in reading and our focus this and next week is on completing running records to assess whether they are currently at the correct level. Keep up the super reading and interest in books Busy Bees!

MY AMAZING DIARY! I have sent home a booklet for a competition to enter if you wish. (I have attached a picture of the flyer I received with additional information if needed). The closing date is the 12th April and as this is in the Easter holidays they would need to be in by next Friday please if you would like me to send them off (: We have some super writers and very imaginative children in the class and it's a great opportunity for them. We not long ago entered receptions riddles into a competition and all will hopefully be published in the anthology! FANTASTIC! 🐝⭐👍

Geography - Next week we are exploring Cartmel. Children may want to look at a range of maps, complete jigsaws and look at and learn about the different countries in UK, maybe what their flag looks like, traditions, where it is on the map, any capital cities...? We will be looking at our local area and also creating maps and looking a t the different types of places and homes we live in. Children could draw some of the maps or create a fact file about a country in the UK if they wish, or make the flag or a type of food specific to that country using their great instructional knowledge.

Have a lovely weekend everyone (:
