Welcome to Homerton class. Below are images of our fantastic learning environment and some marvellous work the children have done.
This week during phonics we have learnt the following codes: '' e as in egg'' , ''ea as in head'' and "or as in fork".
The actions for the codes are as follows:
/e/ - Pretend to crack an egg, tap it once on the side of the bowl and then split the shell open to let the egg plop out.
/ea/ - Imagine yourself in a magnificent headdress of your own design
/or/ - pretend to stab a baby corn on the cob with a fork and eat it.
We have also been practising our cursive handwriting using our leading lines.
PE Days - Thursday and Friday

HOMEWORK - Please ensure you read with your child everyday for at least 10 minutes. Make sure you are noting in reading records as well. Spelling homework folders have been sent home today. The children have been taught to look at the word, cover it and then try to write it from memory in the grid 5 times for each word.
Talk Homework - . Talk to your child about past and present tense. You could play a little game. for example ask your child to jump on the spot and ask them what they are doing? then ask them to stop and what they have just done. The children should be able to say they have jumped in the past tense and they are jumping in the present tense.
Maths - This week we have been learning about adding numbers up to 5,10, 15 and 20. The children have also used a number line to add 2 numbers together. We have now also given out mathletics username and password for every child. Parents should now be able to access mathletics and do the homework task assigned.
Reading Teddy - In Homerton class, we like to praise for effort and having a growth mindset. Each week a child who has shown these attributes will be given the class reading bear to take home for the weekend. Homerton bear enjoys listening to stories - so please read to him lots whilst you have him! Then you can take a photo and record your reading adventures in the book.
