 ** Home Learning is due at school every Thursday **

Spelling

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.

Reading

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.

Numeracy

This week we are focusing on basic facts.

Writing – optional task

Would you rather…

  1. Be too hot or too cold?
  2. Sleep or eat?
  3. Read a book or play an instrument?
  4. Be in winter or summer olympics?
  5. 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.
