This week it is English homework and the task is to use conjunctions in a sentence about Mary Anning and specific dinosaurs. Conjunctions are and/but/so/or/because/when/if/that. We use conjunctions in-between our ideas to link them together and extend simple sentences.
An example for a sentence about the Triceratops would be: The Triceratops moved slowly, but it could run really fast.

This weeks homework is maths. The Year 1 children have some problem solving and reasoning questions related to 'adding by counting on' and the Year 2 children have a worksheet on arrays. I have also added some number formation for homework as it is good practise to make sure those numbers (especially 2s, 3s, 5s and 9s) are formed correctly!
Over the Christmas holidays children will have a phonics sheet to complete and their spellings. These will be due in on Friday 7th January 2022.

As we have a short week next week (18th-20th) all children in both year groups have a phonics activity sheet and a maths worksheet to be completed over half term. This will be due in the first week back after half term. Individual spellings will also be set with the next spelling test on Friday 5th November. I have also set the 5 times table again on TT Rockstars (sorry for the technical difficulty last week but it should be up and running now!)
Have a lovely half term

This week the children have English homework to complete. We have been working on adjectives and expanded noun phrases to make our writing more exciting. I have a bitesize clip for the children to watch which I will post on dojo so it is easier to access. The activity to complete is to describe autumnal objects (3 if possible). Here is an example:
A shiny, hard, round conker.
A shiny, hard, round conker that has fallen from the tree.
Individual spellings are also in book bags

17th September 2021
Homework this week is English. Please write a couple of sentences about the weather this weekend/next week depending on when you complete your homework. Children also have their individual focus five spellings to learn. If some children didn't get a spelling correct on Friday morning, they will have that same word again next week. As always, please dojo message me if you need anything!
10th September 2021
This week is maths homework and it will be consolidating the learning from this week in our lessons. I have also set TT Rockstars up for your child to have a go at if they wish to do so. Year 2s should be more familiar with this, and although we do not cover times tables until the summer term in year 1, we will be doing 10 minutes every Friday afternoon, so the children are welcome to have a go! Your childs TT Rockstars log in is stuck in their yellow reading record.
All children should have a homework folder to keep their work in. I will mark it and return it the next Friday with the new homework.
Everyone will have 5 spellings each week to learn which will be called their 'focus five'. These may be common exception words or words that I have noticed have been spelt incorrectly in their writing. Over the week they will practise them in early morning work, at home and then we will check their spelling on a Friday morning. Every child will have individual spellings to fit their needs each week, so if they do not get a spelling correct one week they will have the same one the next again week- hopefully that makes sense!
If you have any queries please let me know.
