Social Action Project - Community Gardening

Our aim is to plant, grow and share a range of fruits, vegetables and flowers with our school community.

Elm Class kicked off the garden by inviting parents and carers to help us fill the beds and plant garlic, onion, kale, strawberries, tulips and daffodils!


Home Learning

Please read with your child everyday from their Read Write Inc book and record the reading in their reading record.  The children on Read Write Inc have a bookmark for their book band with tricky words to also practise reading nightly.  Inside the reading record you will see that there are tasks to be completed to help develop your child's reading skills.  Those children children who have finished the Read Write Inc programme have a gold band reading book.   

There will be a maths task set on a Friday which will link to our work in class.  The task will be sent home in a home learning book and should be completed in the book and returned to school by the following Friday ready for the next task.  

Each week the children will have some focus spelling words to learn taken from the Year 1 common exception word list.  The common exception words are everyday words that break the phonic rules taught in Read Write Inc and so need to be learnt so the children can use them in their independent writing.  If your child can already confidently spell the word they should write it in a sentence.  Sentences must start with a capital letter but could end with a full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.  Spelling practise can be recorded in the home learning book.
