Homework for March 9 – 13

Richmond students have a busy week!


The homework this week is to talk about sharing. We are having a few difficulties with some of the toys. Next week we are going to focus on being friends and being kind to each other.


Activities based on the nursery rhyme “The Man in the Moon” including: practice writing own name, pencil control, recognising and repeating two-part patterns, identifying things from a set of objects which can burn you and finding a route on a simple map.
Year 1
Numeracy: Subtraction. A simple revision sheet for the children to complete to practice subtraction.

Literacy: Spellings. Well done to everyone for practicing their spellings at home. Today the children wrote them all out for me and I was very impressed with the whole class!  I have written some new words in their books to practice at home on separate paper.

I have also given a short worksheet to practice the Magic ‘E’ and simple comprehension sentences.

Basic Skills: The children must match up the animals to the sentences.

I look forward to seeing you all on Monday ready for our trip to the farm!

Year 2

Literacy: This week we practiced reading and writing sentences with the 5 senses. Practice touch, smell, see, hear and taste. You should ask your child: What can you do with your eyes? “I can see”. Make sure they remember the 5 senses and what they can do with them. We have also practiced spelling and phonics this week, kids have done a great job in their spellings! Word for next week will be written in the spelling book. Please make sure they complete the First and Second try.

Numeracy: This week children have practiced odd and even numbers. They have done an amazing effort. This weekend they need to continue practicing which are the odd and the even numbers up to 100. Complete the papersheet. Make sure they now the difference. Next week we will start with simple divisions.

We also practiced times tables. Practice at home multiplications (2,5, and 10)

Science: We talked about the importance of animal care. They discovered that all living creatures need food and water, exercise, kept clean, love and care, vaccination, go to the vet, a nice place to live and toys. Ask your child: what do you need to do if you have a pet?

Geography: We continue discovering the world, continents and oceans, ask your child the name of the continents and the oceans and try to find them in the world map including Antarctica.

Continents: North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania (Australia) and Antarctica. Oceans: Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, Southern Ocean and Arctic Ocean. Here is a world map that can be printed at home.

Please read with your child 10 minutes every day. Make sure they understand what they are reading; we will need to help them increase their vocabulary.
