Homework

This term, homework will be released on Thursday and is to be handed in no later than the following Thursday morning as it will be marked Thursday afternoon and handed back out on the same day.

Spelling – We will be working on the spellings throughout the week in our spelling and handwriting lesson. Spelling journals will be handed back on Thursday with a copy of this weeks spellings in for the children to continue to practise over the weekend in preparation for our spelling test on Monday. The week’s spellings will also be released on Google Classroom every Monday.

Reading – All children will be issued with their new reading book/s on Thursday each week. Children may bring home a book they have previously read and/or a Read, Write Inc book. This is deliberate, as I would like children to focus on their fluency and comprehension of the texts they are reading this term. It is really important to try to listen to your child read everyday.

Maths – Please ensure that you are all able to log on to Maths with Parents. Homework is set regularly and links very closely to the units we are covering in our maths lessons. This will really help to consolidate children’s understanding of the concepts we are covering in a fun way.

Music – Mrs Coles has assigned music homework this term for all classes on Yumu (children were given their details for this last term), and would like children to complete this weekly.

TTRockstars / Numbots – Children are encouraged to access TTRockstars and Numbots regularly.

If you need any help accessing the homework please email enquiries@stwilfridssheffield.co.uk

Thank you for your continued support.

KS1 Police Visit

We had a very special visit Mr Calder, his colleagues and their vehicle today. The children asked some fantastic questions about the officers who carried the weapons e.g. Did they ever have to use them? Why did they carry guns? Why do they have to do tests to use them? How heavy are the weapons? Finally, we heard the sirens on the car and the children were able to explain why the cars had sirens and what they encouraged other drivers on the road to do.

We would like to say a big thank you to Mr Calder and his colleagues. The children had a fantastic time and learnt so much.

Yoyo Bear Cards

Over the past couple of weeks there has been an increase in the number of children bringing yoyo bears to school as a snack. This is absolutely fine as it is a healthy snack for the children. However, I have noticed that children are also brining in packs of cards that they have collected from these snacks to trade with other children. This is causing significant disruption to the start of our lessons as well as the end of the day as children are trading cards with each other in the corridors during lesson time. Not only that but it is beginning to cause issues where children want to trade and then change their mind but the person they have traded with doesn’t want to trade back.

Mrs Goodchild has asked me to remind all children that due to the current circumstances children are not permitted to bring in any toys/cards etc. from home as they pose an infection risk. I have explained to the children that they should not be bringing in cards from home under any circumstances and that the cards they get in their snack are for them to take home if they are collecting them and are not to be traded with other children.

Thank you for your continued support.

Sports Day!

We had an absolutely amazing sports day thanks to RuggerEds. The children really enjoyed themselves and showed amazing team spirit, cheering each other on, encouraging each other and taking turns. It was wonderful to see the skills they have been practicing in PE transferred into the sports day activities.

Here are just some of the photos from what was a truly brilliant day for the children.

Half term homework

Good afternoon,

First of all I would just like to say well done to all of the children this half term. They have all worked incredibly hard.


Children will be coming home with a pack of homework for over half term in addition to their spelling journal and reading book. I have included a variety of revision activities for Maths, Spelling and Grammar. Completion of the homework is not compulsory but any work that they do complete will help to consolidate their knowledge of topics that we have previously covered. These sheets can also be used after the half term break as additional homework if the children would like to revisit some of our previous learning.I have also set up some activities/games on twinkl go (please find the link below) you will need to enter the following class code: HS6734

Any homework completed is encouraged to be brought back into school as I do keep a record of who is completing the spellings/homework activities. The homework will be given a tick to acknowledge that it has been seen and any errors are discussed directly with the child or through whole class feedback if numerous children struggled with the same question/s.


Thank you for your continued support.


I hope that you all have a wonderful half term break.


God bless

Mrs Savage.

Additional Spelling and Grammar Homework

I have attached a link to Twinkl go below. On here I have set some spelling and grammar games for the children to access at home. We have used them in class today and everyone really enjoyed using this resource. It would be great if the children could access this at home to continue to work on their spellings and grammar.
The PIN required to access the games is RP1526
The children have not been set a username so can simply press the button saying I have not been given a username.
