ENGLISH For homework this week we would like you to write a thank you letter (template given) to someone who has done something to help you. By thanking the person, you will make him/her feel valued and it will also make them feel more inclined to help you in the future. Think about the following and use your thoughts in constructing your letter:

  • How did he/she help you?
  • Why did you need help?
  • How did their help make you feel?
  • What do you think of the person who helped you?
  • Did you learn anything about life from the way this person acted.

SPELLING:  To show that they understand how to use the spelling words in context, kindly encourage your child to write sentences using the spelling words.

Group A & B: behind, after, bath, break, class, even, fast, father, great, improve

Group C: one, two, three, four, five

MATHS:. Please can you also continue to encourage your child to use Sumdog and Times Tables Rockstars to practise their math skills help them to learn their 2s, 5s, and 10s times tables and their number bonds to 100 in and out of order.

READING: As mentioned previously, your child will be building up a range of reading skills. They should have strong phonics knowledge and growing comprehension skills, which will help them read more broadly, confidently, and fluently. Please encourage your child to read for at least 10 minutes each day. Ask them to read aloud to a member of your family.  Remember to talk about the book.

What might happen next?

How do you think the character is feeling? Why do you think that?

What happened in the story?

Can you find a word that means the same as ............?

What is the definition of .........?  If you don't know, can you find it in the dictionary?

Did you enjoy the story? Why?

Remember to refer back to the text when answering the questions.
