Due to quite a few children missing homework deadlines, homework will now be handed in the following day. If this is an issue due to clubs or commitments outside of school, please send a note in the following day explaining that another evening is required and this will be fine.
Please read the following before completing the CGP homework books:
With the Grammar and Maths CGP books, the children will be set pages to complete. After completing the pages, the children are to mark their answers using the answer sheets provided at the back of the books. It is up to you, as a parent, whether you would like to mark their work as I know that evenings are often packed full of clubs etc, leaving little time for marking homework. The onus is really on the children to independently mark their own work and complete any errors they have made, clearly indicating that it has been corrected. The answer sheets can also be removed so that the children don't have access to them whilst working out questions; again, this is something to be discussed/decided at home.
Finally, please could you ensure that you sign the page (parent signature) to make it clear that the work has been completed as set out above before it is handed back in at school.
If you have struggled with any questions, clearly label them and myself or Ms Binns will go through them with you the following morning or afternoon.

SPELLINGS AND TT ROCKSTARS (2's and 7's)
See if you can boost your ranking in TT Rockstars and learn the spellings below for a test next week.
It is vital that you learn the words in a sentence so you know the meaning of the word, otherwise it won't make sense when read in a sentence for a spelling test.
Make sure you type the school name as follows: St Michael's-on-wyre CE Primary School, Preston
If you are having trouble logging in on an iPad, it doesn't seem to have any problems on a laptop or computer. Alternatively, if you don't have access at home, please let me know the following day and you will be able to complete it in school.
TT Rockstars and Wednesday's spelling practice.
On TT Rockstars, please complete at least 3 games on the studio as this is the area that will update your current speed. If you play on the garage for coins, it won't update your speed in the charts.
