Have a happy and healthy holiday

It’s the summer holidays at last, so there are no homework or spelling activities. Enjoy the holidays instead!

Does your child spend less time outdoors than prison inmates? A survey suggests three-quarters of children do, as the time spent playing in parks, woods and fields has shrunk dramatically due to lack of green spaces, digital technology and parents’ fears.

Research shows that playing outdoors promotes social skills, improves vision, reduces stress, increases attention span and provides vitamin D.

These are the last spellings of the year! They focus on certain rules we have learnt:  -ed, -ing, -er, -s and -es endings.

All children in Year 1 have the same spellings.

look

sing

01 July 2016

As you know, we have had to close school on Friday 01 July – Shadwell Lane had its water turned off.  For that reason, and because two classes are out of school today, there hasn’t been chance to set homework or spellings for this week.

Even though there is no set homework or spellings, please remember there are lots of things that the children can be doing to reflect on their learning from this week.

Again, I would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by the school closure.

Red and yellow group:
are
come
here
said
some
there
were
where

These are more words where phonics doesn’t help a whole lot to spell them. Please help your child to hear and understand the difference between where and were.

Green group:
I will ask you any ten spellings of the days of the week and the months of the year.
