Summer Term

Welcome to our summer term topic of Wonderful Weather! Fingers crossed we will have wonderful weather so we can enjoy more outside learning too! You can find out what we will be learning in our curriculum overview.

It is important to complete homework every week. This helps your child practice and remember what they have learned in school, helps with their future learning and creates an opportunity for them to share and celebrate their learning with you too. Homework is near the bottom of this page. We won't have Show and Tell this term but we will celebrate completed homework with extra house points as well as certificates in Friday's Celebration Assembly!

If you are isolating at home and feel well enough to do some learning, please see the Home Learning section on this page or email us with and questions. We hope you are ok and look forward to seeing you back in school soon.

We are looking forward to a fabulous term of sunny and happy learning!

Best wishes,

The Blackbird Team.

Weekly Home Work - Term 6

It is important to complete homework every week. This helps your child practice and remember what they have learned in school, helps with their future learning and creates an opportunity for them to share and celebrate their learning with you too. Little and often throughout the week is sometimes easier than doing everything in one go on one day. 

We will celebrate completed homework with house points as well as certificates in Friday's Celebration Assembly! 

Please complete homework by Thursday morning.

If you have any questions, please ask or email us so we can help you.

Y1 and Y2 Reading: Read at least four times a week to help your child develop fluency and quick recognition of tricky words. Use the comprehension questions to build your child's understanding of what they are reading. Record this in your reading diary to achieve weekly reading champion stamps and certificates. 

Y1 Phonics and spelling: Pease see your homework book for this week's homework. We will give you a password for Spelling Shed when we use this later in the year.
