A quick homework reminder
|Reading Homework||Each week the children are expected to take responsibility for reading regularly outside of the classroom. They should be reading as often and as widely as possible. We suggest they should spend at least 10 minutes reading daily and keep a record of this reading in their reading record. To support the development of comprehension skills, the children should use the activities in their home reading journal to explore the texts they have read and show an understanding of their reading. In addition to this, the children have individual logins to 'Reading Eggspress' - an digital reading platform on which they can earn rewards for the books they read and the reading activities they complete online. You can find a link to Reading Eggspress at the bottom of the page.|
|Spelling Homework||The children have spent a number of spelling sessions revising the statutory word lists for year 3 and 4. As a result, we have identified which words they need to revisit and consolidate. These words can be found in the back of their reading journal. These words should be practiced regularly over the term as we will be re-assessing them in the last week of term 1. They also have access to 'Spellodrome' and online platform to develop their spelling skills through a range of activities, games and challenges. You can find a link to Spellodrome at the bottom of the page.|
|Mathematics Homework||Each week, the children will be set online tasks to complete linked to their classroom learning using Mathletics. You can find a link to the Mathletics website at the bottom of the page. Children can also access the computer room at school during lunchtimes to complete these tasks.|
Liddington Postcard Day One
After a busy morning in school, we were very excited to finally reach our destination at around 3.30 this afternoon. Firstly, we took all our bags to our rooms and were then shown around the site by our group leader, Brandon. We played some games had tea and then it was one for our first evening activity - snapshots!
This was a team game and involved teams competing in different photo or video challenges to win points. We had to get into the smallest space, make a pyramid and create a rap about PGL to name but a few. Check out our photos below.
We settled down for the night at about 9.30 and were all looking forward to the day ahead of us. Come back soon to find out more!
