Homework this half term

Thanks for all your hard work and support with the phonics homework sheets. 

For this term we are now going to use our spellings homework to consolidate our phonics learning. You may notice that once your child has learnt all the spellings for the ‘helpful words’ (part of the Floppy’s phonics scheme) they will now have groups of spellings containing the same sound. The children are all at different stages with their spellings so please don’t worry if your child’s spellings are not the same as someone else’s!


I will continue to send home the list to learn in their red books on Thursdays. The children will have one week to learn the spellings for a test the following Thursday. Please keep the red book in their reading folder. There is also a practise sheet to help with learning the spellings (that lasts for two weeks). There is a copy below if it gets lost.

On Thursday your child will bring home their new reading books and a phonics or maths homework sheet (that consolidates the class work) to be completed in pencil. The phonic reading books give the children an opportunity to practise their reading skills. The books can be read multiple times during the week giving the children a chance to build up their confidence when reading independently. We ask that each child aims to read at home to an adult every day for around ten minutes and that the adult writes in their orange reading record book when they have done so.


Thank you for your continuing support,

Miss Green
