Squirrel Class

Welcome to Squirrel Class!

Welcome back!

We hope you all had a lovely summer break and are as excited for the year ahead as we are!

Let's go Super Squirrels!

Squirrel Class Homework 18.09.20

 

English/ Topic - We have been learning about the early life of Beatrix Potter and have put the key events in chronological order. Can you put key events of someone’s life in chronological order? This could be the life of another significant individual or about yourself.

 

 

Spellings – This week we have been learning that the /s/ sound is often spelt as c before e, i and y. Here some example spellings to practise this rule. Maybe you can think of some other words with the /s/ sound to challenge yourself too? If you want a further challenge, why not try writing the words in a sentence?

 

race

ice

cell

city

fancy

face

space

bicycle

circle

spicy

 

There are lots of different ways in which you can practise these spellings (see the phonics and spellings sheet sent home last year for some ideas) but the ‘look, cover, write, check’ method works really well.

 

Maths – play the ‘Tell the Time Bingo’ game (tucked inside your child’s homework book) with an adult or brother/sister. Discuss together where the hands are pointing and the time that each clock shows.

 

Please remember that daily reading and practising the tricky words (reading and spelling) are on-going every week too.

 

Please return the homework books to school on Wednesday 23rd September.

Squirrel Class Homework 11.09.20

 

English/ Topic - We have been learning about Red Squirrels and how they are now only found in certain parts of the UK. Choose another UK animal, bird or insect whose numbers are declining and research why and what is being done to protect them.  Record your findings in your homework book, or you could present your work differently and put a photo in your homework book.

 

Spellings – This week we have been learning that the sound /j/ is often spelt with g before e, i and y and that the sound /j/ is always spelt with j before a, o and u. Here some example spellings to practise this rule. Maybe you can think of some other words with the /j/ sound to challenge yourself too?

 

gem

giant

magic

giraffe

energy

jacket

jar

jog

join

adjust

Maths – choose a challenge from the sheet attached. You can either print out the part-part whole model sheets or can draw them in your book yourself.

 

Please remember that daily reading and practising the tricky words (reading and spelling) are on-going every week too.

 

Please return the homework books to school on Wednesday 16th September.

We had a fantastic first 2 days back at school! We are so proud of the way in which the children have come back with so much enthusiasm and are thrilled to have them all back together again!

Super Squirrels in their super squirrel hats!
