I will be in class on Wednesday, Thursday & Friday this week.
Spellings: We have made the decision to keep the phonics books in school as we recognise they are tricky to do at home when parents are not confident with the pure sounds. However, we have introduced a weekly spelling test (which will include challenge words for those who are already secure). I have uploaded a list of words for term 2 and will put one in the childrens book bags on Monday. I will be giving the children an activity every Friday which will include the spelling words – this may not be a traditional spelling test but a writing activity that includes the words and rule learnt that week. The activity on quizlet will correspond with the weekly spellings. The link is as follows: https://quizlet.com/join/GdfgVd5ba
Maths Rockstar: All children have been given a username and password which are stuck in their home journals. They need to go into the ‘garage’ section where they will be given a range of times tables questions for the 2,3,5 & 10 times tables. The other areas (studio, festival and arena) cannot be set to ability and therefore include all the tables up to 12x12. More tables will be added to the group as we progress through the year.

Nativity Thank you for encouraging your child to write an application letter for the forthcoming Nativity. We will be looking at them all next week and holding auditions, where necessary, on Wednesday.
Have a good week.
