Literacy Homework

Children need to learn their spellings. There will continue to be a spelling test on a Friday however they all know that they can decide how they would like to learn these words. We have used many different activities in class and for homework over the last two terms, so children should be familiar with activities to use. If they are unsure, they can choose from this list:

  • Blue Vowels
  • Vowel Circle
  • Rainbow Write
  • Elkonin Boxes
  • Diacritical Marking

Or look back on previous homework posts, ask in class or use this website for additional ideas:

Topic Homework

Each child needs to create / design a style of tartan. It can be the tartan of their own surname or a tartan that they like. They should involve the whole family when doing this. An idea might be to each choose a colour and a thickness (thin/thick ) and draw their own style of tartan using the colours and ideas from everyone within  the household. This activity can be done on a post-it, in their jotter, or on a sheet of paper. It can be completed using pens, pencils or paint.If any paper or pens or pencils are required, children just have to ask me!

I am hoping to incorporate more and more family orientated tasks to get everyone involved in what the children are learning about and what is going on in school.
