Homework is given out each Friday and is to be completed and handed in by the following Wednesday. Homework will be a mixture of hands on tasks and challenges alongside reading, writing and maths. We try to make homework as fun as possible to engage all children!  Children will also be given a purple mash login to complete homework challenges and tasks at home. 

Spellings

Spellings will be given out every Friday. The children will then do their spelling test the following Thursday. Children will usually have 10 spellings to learn and will have a sheet of spellings stuck into their spellings book, with room to practise throughout the week. Spellings will consist of a mixture of phase 2-5 tricky words, Year 1 common exception words and words that follow certain rules and spelling patterns. 

Being able to apply the spelling pattern in writing is just as important as getting 10/10! 

Science

This term in Science we will be learning all about the human body and our senses. We will be learning and labelling all of the different body parts and taking part in senses and taste tests. We will be busy looking at the changes around us during the season of Autumn and as part of our ongoing topic work we will also be studying materials and trying to figure out which material would make a best cape for a superhero!
