Room 4 have enjoyed two visits to the Life Education bus this week. We have been learning about 'Keeping Ourselves Safe' with the help of Renee and Harold the giraffe.
Just a reminder that Room 4 are taking assembly next week, Friday 18th March. Please join us if you are able.
Congratulations to those students who have leant the term scripture. Please help your children to learn it by the end of week 9, Friday 1st April.
Ki O Rahi. Some students are learning toplay Ki O Rahi at lunchtimes with Mrs Foote. This is so that RVS can enter a team in the Ki O Rahi tournament later this term. More details to follow, but if you're not sure what the game involves, ask your child!
February 2016 Homework.
I would like to take the opportunity to outline the homework programme in Room 4.
Each week there will be a short scripture to learn, daily independent reading, Mathletics and spelling.
The weekly scripture can be either recited to me or to you at home. Please initial next to the scripture if your child says their scripture to you.
Each night I would like the children to do approximately 20 minutes of independent reading. They should record this themselves in the homework book, either as time spent reading or number of pages read. I will not send journals home: children can select their own reading material and can bring home books from the school library.
I will set some tasks for the children to complete on Mathletics and would like them to achieve 1000 points a week, although they may have opportunity to achieve points during class time too.
Spelling activities will mostly be completed at school but there may be spelling tasks to help children learn their weekly words. I have provided some ideas on ways to help learn spelling words.
In addition there may be other activities from time to time, such as preparing an item for oral language or topic related tasks.
Homework books will go home on Monday and should be returned to school on Friday. I would appreciate it if you would sign the weekly homework page to confirm you have seen it.
I understand that life after school can get busy and after school activities are important, so please let me know if there is a problem in completing the homework.
If you have any queries or feedback you would like to give about the homework you can either write in the homework book or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in anticipation of your support for the homework programme.
You have heard people say “Love your neighbours and hate your enemies.” But I tell you to love your enemies and pray for anyone who mistreats you. Then you will be acting like your Father in heaven. He makes the sun rise on both good and bad people. And he sends rain for the ones who do right and for the ones who do wrong. If you love only those people who love you, will God reward you for that? Even tax collectors love their friends. If you greet only your friends, what’s so great about that? Don’t even unbelievers do that? But you must always act like your Father in heaven.
Mathew 5: v 43 - 48
