Chestnut Class 2020-2021
We are trying to limit paper-based homework where possible however, we feel that reading and phonics is a priority therefore the children will have enough homework to last until October half term. This is to limit the amount of touch contact with homework books. I will check their Homework during October half term.
Your child will have a purple Phonics Home Book with words to practice. Please complete 3 worksheets a week up until October half term, this should only take 5 minutes per day. Please send your child’s Phonics Home Book back to School in their reading wallet on Monday 19th October. Your child will receive their Phonics Home Book on Monday 14th September with more information.
Your child will have a Dinosaur themed Spelling book which will contain spellings to focus on each week. Spellings will be checked on Friday’s. Your child will need to practice their spellings every day. I have made a list of some fun spelling ideas to encourage your child to practice.
Reading books will be changed on Monday’s and Thursday’s if your child has read their book at least twice. Please aim to listen to your child at least four times a week, this will help them to become fluent readers.
