A big thank you for your support and excellent homework last term! Diolch yn fawr!
This half term we have a new format for our homework! We hope this will make it more enjoyable and exiting for parents and children!
The homework challenges will run for the spring half term. You may choose as many of the activities as you wish.
Rather than returning homework every week, we will have a ‘Show and Tell Day’ on Thursday the 13th February, where the children can present their homework.
Many of the homework challenges are practical. The children are welcome to bring in:
- artefacts they have found/made
- hand drawn pictures
- photographs of things they have seen/made
- books they have made etc.
The children could also type their work using HWB or upload their photos/pictures etc to the HWB.
We look forward to seeing the children’s work,
Reading Reception reading days are Monday, Wednesday and Friday!
In St. Therese’s Primary School we use The Oxford Reading Tree as our main reading scheme. In Reception, your child will initially be introduced to the characters and then in time some core vocabulary before being introduced to the scheme. For more information on The Oxford Reading Tree please visit:
We will endeavour to listen to every child read and change their reading book (if needed) every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please note that this may not always be possible. Therefore, can you please ensure your child has their book bags and reading book in school every day.
If you would like more information on how to successfully listen to your child read, please read the report “Parental Engagement and How to Make a Real Difference” found here on the Oxford Reading Tree website:
