Have a outstanding week,
** Home Learning is due at school every Thursday **
You will have 10 words from your list to learn this week. You could use ‘Look, cover, write and check’ to help you learn these.
Most children will bring home a book each night (Monday – Thursday), please read these at home with or to someone. It is expected that every child is reading a novel for 20 minutes each day at home. If you need help choosing a good novel come and see me, we have a great selection in the school library.
This week we are focusing on basic facts.
Writing – optional task
Would you rather…
- Be too hot or too cold?
- Sleep or eat?
- Read a book or play an instrument?
- Be in winter or summer olympics?
- Be in a car or on a plane?
Choose 2 or 3 ‘would you rather’ questions and tell me your ideas. Remember to write in full sentences, punctuate and always reread to make sure your writing makes sense.
