Following the success of the online home schooling, the use of Google Classroom and Education City and also to minimise the number of books going to and from school, all homework in the Autumn term will be set on line. It will be set either using Google Classroom or Education City. To access both of these platforms you will need your child's 'Wonde' password. You should already have a copy of these at home, and your child's teacher will also stick a copy in the front of your child's reading record book. Click on the link below, and follow the instructions to log into Wonde. You will then be able to access your child's Google Classroom as well as the 'My City' homework that has been set for them on Education City by their teacher.
Reading is THE most important thing you can do with your child at home. The expectation is that your child will read at home every night. If they do not have an opportunity to read to someone at home then they will have an opportunity to read at break time so they do not fall behind with their reading. Please ensure that you record in the reading record book when your child has read at home. Reading books will be changed on a Monday and Thursday. If you finish a book please make it clear that the book has been finished and you require a new book on book change day. If the book is finished before book change day, please still read with your child. This can be the same book again, which is great for fluency and understanding of the text, or alternatively this can be a book that you have at home, or even a book from the Oxford Owls website. The login details for Oxford Owls are: Username: SquirrelsWSPA Password: WSPA
Just make sure you record the date, the name of the book read and a comment in the reading record book.
Every week, we will set spellings for the children to learn. These will link to the phonics and spelling rules we are learning that week in school. Children will be tested on the spellings on a Thursday morning. Their spellings books should be handed in on a Thursday morning so the new spellings can be stuck into their books. We will monitor each week that children are using the book to practise (as a minimum) to learn their spellings and tables.
