In Swallowtails, the children are expected to complete the following tasks during the week:

1. Read frequently both independently and with an adult. Home reading should be neatly recorded in the yellow / green reading diary and signed by an adult.

2. Practise or collect spelling or phonics patterns (see below).

3. Continue to learn times tables and other numbercard targets.

4. Complete any other homework tasks set by the teacher (details of these projects will appear below).


Spellings are set each Friday and handed in on Wednesday.

Dates for the completion of other homework tasks will be written below.


Swallowtails have a taught spelling lessons 3 times a week focussing on specific vocabulary the children use daily. They will be assessed on the words learnt over the course of the week on a Friday however these words will not be being sent home weekly. Of course, the main test if is the children use them in their own written work!


Friday 11th July - No new spelling homework this week.


Please can all children ensure they have reading diaries in school each day next week.


PE kits needed for house rounders next Thursday.


Next week (07.07.14) Mr Williams' Spelling Group will be learning about cial / tial word endings. For example: Special and essential. Please write down 5 cial words and 5 tial words and then write your favourite three from each list in a sentence.


Please have ready for Wednesday.


Next week, Miss Hynes' Phonics Group

Next week we will be continuing to spell words which have a 'c' in them but make an /s/ sound (for example: cell, city, cycle). Have a go at writing some different sentences which contain more that one 'c' word. How many 'c' words can you fit into one sentence? For a challenge, can you write a short story paragraph with lots of 'c' words in.


Please have ready for Wednesday.
