'An Outstanding School' – Ofsted June 2015   Read the report here

Date: Monday 9th to Thursday 19th June

The homework that is set for the children in Bridgegate is designed to support, consolidate and extend the learning the children are exposed to in class and intended to inspire their curiosity outside of the classroom, regarding the topic or area of learning that is being covered. Bridgegate’s blog is full of new, creative ideas and interactive games that will help your child strengthen their learning and access new learning in the following weeks, so please check the blog for regular updates, homework ideas and website links. Thank you for the hard work and effort that you all put in to working with your child at home, the Year One Team are extremely grateful for your support.

Maths: Page 30-31 to be completed.

Literacy: Page 14-15 to be completed.

Reading: Please continue to read with your child every night and please may you record this in your child’s Reading Record. Reading to your child is also very beneficial, even if they are accomplished readers, as this increases their vocabulary and fosters a love of reading for pleasure.

Phonics: To support your child to consolidate the learning that is taking place class, the Year One Team have sent home sounds sheets this week that are specific sounds the children have found difficult this week. If possible, it is great practice to encourage your child to add ‘sound buttons’ onto the words provided on the sound sheets, to further visualize the sounds in words. Any questions between now and then, our door is always open so please don’t hesitate to ask. In addition, please encourage them to independently sound each picture out and complete a ‘silly sentence’ when they have finished, using the words they have spelt.

Dandelions: ‘o-e’ and ‘u-e’

Acorns: ‘u-e’ and ‘i-e’

Pinecones: ‘o-e’ and ‘u-e’

Spellings: Due to Bridgegate reaching the end of their term, there will be no spellings set this week and therefore, no spelling test next week.

As the children are preparing themselves to become ‘Watergate ready’, Bridgegate have been accessing a range of more difficult High Frequency Words. The Year One Team have sent home a list of these this week to ensure you are aware of the next phase in your child’s learning, with regards to their spellings and phonics. Please feel free to create games or practice the following spellings how you wish, as they are for you to use as you wish.
