Home Learning for the week: 
 
Welcome back to Summer Term 2, Week 7 of home learning!  I hope you've all had a lovely weekend.  
 
Our focus in topic work will be the hedgehogs.  We will be going on a bit of a nature hunt and trying to raise money at the same time.  There are lots of really interesting activities to learn and help hedgehogs.  
 
I'm hoping this gorgeous weather will continue so we can get outside to do our learning and hedgehog activities.

Reading
 
Keep on your great reading routine boys and girls.  I love it that you're reading and loving it!
 
We will be continuing our book by David Walliams called 'The Ice Monster'.  It is getting super exciting!
 
Our VIPERS this week is recall.  I have attached a reading activity when we will read then recall information about hedgehogs.  You can read it with your child and talk about the questions together or have them reading it and answer the questions independently.
 
Carry on with your Optima word mats this week.  I've put new common exception words and a new word mat in your learning packs this week.   We have been writing the words on cards in school and playing word hide and seek.   Its a good idea to write the words on individual post its and then stick them around the house so you can practise reading them.  You can play games of pairs and snap too!
 
Please use the common exception word mat in the same way!
