Homework

Reading

It is essential that your child reads to an adult frequently (ideally every day) for at least 10 minutes. Please feel free to communicate with us, and comment on their reading, in their Reading Record book.

 

Your child has chosen a reading book which is at their correct reading level. Some books may take your child multiple evenings to complete depending on difficulty, length of the book and how long they read for. Once they have finished reading the whole book, they can exchange it for a new book the next day in school.

 

Homework Tasks

Homework tasks will be set on a Friday. These are activities for you to complete at home. We do not need evidence of this to be handed into school as the homework tasks will be reinforcement of what your child has been learning in school that week.

 

Spellings

Spellings will be set by your child's phonics teacher and will be sent home on a Friday.

Useful Documents

Many parents have asked me about additional ways to support their child at home. Below are links to download documents that are useful for aiding your child's reading comprehension, spelling and writing.

Christmas Songs to Practise

Below are the lyrics for the songs that the children are learning for their Christmas play. Please help your child to become more confident with the lyrics by reminding them of the words.

Jingle bells

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh,
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

 

Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh
Through the fields we go
Laughing all the way.
Bells on bob-tail ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight.

 

 

Listen to our Story

Come on and listen to our story,

That happened long ago,

There’s lots to hear,

But first of all, meet Mary and meet Jo,

Then come with us to Bethlehem,

‘Cause that’s where it’s all happening,

And most important of all, there’s a baby.

 

Come on lets go, with Mary and Jo,

And what do you know? We'll show you a baby!

 

And so our story starts on Monday,

It was Mary’s washing day,

When an angel pops in through the door,

And then she hears him say,

Now God says you’re the chosen one,

To be a very special mum,

And most important of all, there’s a baby.

 

Come on lets go, with Mary and Jo,

And what do you know? We'll show you a baby!

 

 

Tick Tock

Tick, tock, it’s nearly 8 o’clock,

Better make a move before it gets too hot,

Tick, tock, it’s nearly 8 o’clock,

Time we went ‘cause Bethlehem’s a long way off.

 

Repeat (9 o'clock, 10 o'clock, 10 o'clock)

 

 

It’s a long way to Bethlehem

It’s a long way to Bethlehem, it’s a dry and dusty road,

It’s a long way to Bethlehem, do we really have to go?

It’s a long way to Bethlehem, it’s a lot for little feet,

It’s a long way to Bethlehem, we’ll be walking for a week!

 

Better get up, get off, get a move on,

Better be on our way,

Hurry it up, come on get your shoes on,

We must be gone today.

 

It’s a long way to Bethlehem, we’ll be bored to bits, I know,

It’s a long way to Bethlehem, and we’d rather stay at home.

It’s a long way to Bethlehem, it’s a hundred miles at least,

It’s a long way to Bethlehem, and you’re calling it a treat!

 

Better get up, get off, get a move on,

Better be on our way,

Hurry it up, come on get your shoes on,

We must be gone today.

 

It’s a long way to Bethlehem, it’s a dry and dusty road,

It’s a long way to Bethlehem, do we really have to go?

 

It’s a long way to Bethlehem, it’s a lot for little feet,

It’s a long way to Bethlehem, we’ll be walking for a week!

 

Better get up, get off, get a move on,

Better be on our way,

Hurry it up, come on get your shoes on,

We must be gone today.

 

Better get up, get off, get a move on,

Better be on our way,

Hurry it up, come on get your shoes on,

We must be gone, we must be gone, we must be gone today!

 

 

 

Faster than a Rocket

Faster than a rocket, speeding like a bullet,

Angels made the journey to earth from Heaven!

Shooting like a comet, flying supersonic,

Angels with a message to earth from Heaven!

 

What a journey, what a special sight!

Sent from glory, in a blaze of light they’re going…

 

Faster than a rocket, speeding like a bullet,

Angels made the journey to earth from Heaven!

Shooting like a comet, flying supersonic,

Angels with a message to earth from Heaven!

 

It’s amazing, it’s an awesome sight!

From the Heavens, through the starry skies they’re coming…

 

Faster than a rocket, speeding like a bullet,

Angels made the journey to earth from Heaven!

Shooting like a comet, flying supersonic,

Angels with a message to earth from Heaven!

 

Many angels in the air tonight,

On a mission sent from God on high they’re coming…

 

Faster than a rocket, speeding like a bullet,

Angels made the journey to earth from Heaven!

Shooting like a comet, flying supersonic,

Angels with a message to earth from Heaven!

 

Faster than a rocket, speeding like a bullet,

Angels made the journey to earth from Heaven!

Shooting like a comet, flying supersonic,

Angels with a message to earth from Heaven!

Let’s go find him, COME ON!

Away in a Manger

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,

The little Lord Jesus, laid down his sweet head.

The stars in the bright sky, looked down where he lay,

The little Lord Jesus, asleep in the hay.

 

The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes,

But little Lord Jesus, no crying he makes,

I love thee Lord Jesus, look down from the sky,

And stay by my side until morning is nigh.

 

Be near me Lord Jesus, I ask thee to stay

Close by me for ever, and love me I pray,

Bless all the dear children, in thy tender care,

And fit us for heaven, to live with thee there.

 

 

 

We wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas

And a happy New Year.

 

Good tidings we bring
To you and your kin;
Good tidings for Christmas
And a happy New Year!

 

Now bring us figgy pudding
Now bring us figgy pudding
Now bring us figgy pudding
And a cup of good cheer

 

We won't go 'til we get some
We won't go 'til we get some
We won't go until we get some
So bring it out here!
