Homework 23/02/24
First of all thank you to all those who took the time to come to the Parents' evening this week. It is a pleasure sharing the success of your children with you as all the children in Frogs are working really hard.
This week children have been working on their Polar animal reports based on their Half Term homework. It has been a fasinating week learning about the different animals and finding out about animals I never even knew existed! In Maths we have been finding tenths and hunredths of numbers.
For their homework children I would like children to support this learning by spending time on TTRS.
Ideally they should spend time focusing on the Jamming sessions. Here they can select the tables they would like to focus on and there is no timer. After they have worked on their tables in Jamming I would like them to spend some time on Garage trying to improve their heatmaps.
The second part of their homework is reading related. We have recieved our delivery of brand new books today. I would like the children to enjoy reading their (Mr Rushton) reading book and where possible attempt one of the suggested activities from the back of the book. For those children on NESSY they can spend this time focusing on NESSY.
I hope everyone has a lovely weekend and the endless rain stops sometime soon!

Mr Rushton
