Please stop by school to collect your new Home Learning Pack. Inside you will find a new book to read and work booklet, a writing booklet for writing lessons, plus a new handwriting pen and a new whiteboard pen. Your child will need these for their learning over the next two weeks.

Thank you! 

Spelling Frame - Complete a quiz on your new spellings this week and play the games for between 10 to 30 minutes. Take a break if you need to. Focus on the new rule. What do all the words have in common? Take the opportunity to reflect back and look at a range of spellings over the previous term. Are you using these words in your writing wherever possible and when they fit? They give you an idea of the type of words we will be looking to see in your work. Choose three of your spellings that could fit into this week's whole school writing.

Our project is all about the area where we live - Riddings and Derbyshire. Over the next term we will be asking lots of questions and inviting you to help boost your knowledge by learning all about our history that allows us to be where we are today. You may wish to speak to someone at home who can help you and pass on information about the local area and its history to help find out even more.

Today we will look at where Riddings and Derbyshire is in the world. With your parent's consent you may be allowed to search on Google Earth to help you find Derbyshire and Riddings. Check with an adult first.
