Weekly Blog & Homework ~ 16.3.23

Blog & Homework for week beginning 16.4.23
Dear parents and carers,
I hope you have all had a cracking Easter Holiday. Willow Class, get ready for a very busy Summer Term!
Each child received their assembly part, whole class song words and script before the Easter holidays. This will be the focus of our homework along with Spelling Frame, TTRS and Guided Reading in the first two weeks of Summer Term. All narrator parts will have their words during the assembly but all other parts need to be learned by heart. Please ensure your child practises at home. We will be doing lots of practise in class too. We are all looking forward to it! 
We swim this week on Tuesday and have PE on Wednesday and Friday. Then PE will take place on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Please make sure that your child comes in a school PE kit and has a named water bottle in school. 
Homework Overview
Class assembly ~ Please practise all speaking parts and song words for our class assembly. Practise speaking with a loud, clear voice and expression ( speak as the character would say it). 
Spellings ~ Spelling Frame - access Spelling Frame and complete at least 2 activities and a practice test. 
Times Tables Rockstars ~ Jump on to TTRS to have fun building fluency with your times table calculations. Children should spend around 15-20 minutes minimum on Times Tables Rockstars each week. Fluency of multiplication facts will help your child in so many other areas of maths.Top winners each week will receive a certificate.
Reading ~ Your child has a Guided Reading Book. Please ensure you read with your child as well as encouraging independent reading and leave a comment in the reading record to let us know how they are progressing. Your child can write comments too.
Please ensure your reading book and record is in your bag every day.
~ Little and often...and not last minute! Give yourself enough time to complete homework tasks. Why not get as much done through the week so you can have the weekend off : )
~ Be comfortable...make sure you work in a comfortable space, perhaps with a drink and snack.
~ Have little screen breaks to keep your eyes healthy and happy!
If for any reason, on any week, you have any issues with homework, please just let me know. 
I think that's all for now. If you have any queries or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me on:
Take care everyone,
Mrs Smith
