Blog & Homework for week commencing 18th of October
Hello everyone,
I hope this week's blog finds you all well. It has been another action packed, busy week in Willow Class. The children enjoyed lots of learning with Mrs Sapor  and on Friday afternoon, the class designed their own William Morris inspired monoprints. They are all really looking forward to making these next week! If you have a carved pumpkin, don't forget to bring it into class on Wednesday. I can't wait to see them all. I hope you have managed to watch our Harvest video and listen to our 'Dream Day' poems on our Class Page. 
Our Star of the Week certificate goes to Vincent Spence for his wonderful William Morris inspired monoprint design - great work Vincent!
For this half term our PE sessions take place on a Tuesday morning. Please ensure your child comes to school in a school PE kit on this day please.
 In line with our Covid-19 Risk Assessment, we are asking children to come into school in their outdoor PE kit on the day of their PE lesson. Children should wear black joggers or leggings or as the weather gets warmer, children may wish to wear their purple shorts, their white PE t-shirt, purple school jumper and trainers. Please make sure that your child also has a named water bottle in school. 
Homework Overview
Google Classroom ~ Google Classroom homework will start again after half term
Spellings ~ Go to Spelling Frame for this week's spellings. Complete at least 2 games and a test. Spellings will be tested on a Monday morning. Again, the class have logged on to have a go at using Spelling Frame.
Times Tables Rockstars ~ Jump on to TTRS to practise your times table facts.
Bug Club ~ I have allocated everyone in class a 'book band'. As your child works their way through the books, they will automatically move through the bands when ready. As they read each book, they must complete all of the 'bug challenges'. I should hopefully be able to get password issues sorted out for after half term. Thanks for your patience!
~ 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. Children have been sent home with all passwords they will need for now. Please keep them all in a safe place.
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 and have a lovely half term when it comes around,
Mrs Smith
