Homework week ending 5th October
Your child has been set a task on spag.com to reinforce when to use the article a or an. Please help your child to come up with other examples of when to use a or an. Although this might seem an easy task, children regularly make mistakes when writing. They tend to use a each time. Your child has been given a password for this website. Please keep it safe as we will use the site at other times in the year. If your child used the site last year, the password will be the same.
Thank you for reminding your child to return their reading record book to school. Please continue to read with your child at home.
In our English lessons we have been using time adverbials (Adverbs of time tell us when an action happened, for how long, and how often) eg later that afternoon, next, suddenly, soon afterwards, moments later, that afternoon. Please encourage your child to look out for these words and phrases as they read.
Please help your child to spell the words for week 5 on the new spelling sheet given out this week. We have been working on these words in class. There will be a spelling test of some of the words next week. If your child is struggling to spell all the words, please focus only on the words your child is most likely to need in their independent writing.
Over the next couple of weeks we will look at words ending in el, al, and le. The endings for these words sound the same. The children need to remember which words belong to which list. I asked the children to draw a table with a little bottle and a little apple in the middle. This activity helps to connect words with the same ending. See if your child can come up with ways to remember which ending thewords need.
Please continue to use Spelling Frame at home to support the learning of our weekly spellings.
Have a good weekend,
Mrs Furniss and Mrs Armstrong
