Spellings- week commencing 28/11/22

This week is a special spelling focus- homophones.

Homophones: words which sound the same, but are spelt differently and mean different things. The children must know both the spellings and what each word means ready for our spelling quiz next Monday.

  1. sea 2. see 3. son 4. sun 5. blew 6. blue 7. knight 8. night 9. which 10. witch 11. saw 12. sore

Optional learning task: Children may like to make a poster using their homework challenge book to explain what a homophone is and the meaning of the different homophones listed above. If they would like to do this, please see the example below…

Raffle Tickets

This year, Woodthorpe Friends are asking our families to help sell raffle tickets. Today your child will have brought home a book of 5 raffle tickets, in an envelope, to sell to family, neighbours and/or friends. Each ticket is £1 and a book is £5.

Once sold, the money and completed ticket stubs must be returned together to class teachers. Please return them in the envelope provided, with your child’s name and class on the front, that way we can keep track of the highest sellers. The highest seller in each class will receive a prize. A voucher for a Family Splash session at Cocks Moor Wood Leisure Centre will be given for the most sold in the school.

If you are unable to sell the tickets for any reason, please return them to your child’s class teacher, so they can be redistributed. If you wish to sell more than one book, you can email friendsofwoodthorpeschool@gmail.com and we will get them to your child. Alternatively, where possible, a Woodthorpe Volunteer will also be available at the end of the school day to hand out extra books.

To be entered into the draw, all raffle ticket stubs and money will need to be returned by Monday 12th December.

#HalfTimeChallenge

During the 2022 tournament, the Youth Sport Trust will release three video challenges via our social media channels below for families to complete.

How to enter

  • The first on 21 November which is when the Home Countries play their first matches
  • The second on 03 December when the knock-out stages begin
  • The third on 13 December – the day of the semi-finals.

The videos will test families’ football skills with challenges such as nearest to the pin, ‘keepy uppies’ and dribbling accuracy.

At each stage you can upload photos and videos of yourself and your family participating in the challenges, using the hashtag #HalfTimeChallenge and tagging @YouthSportTrust for a chance to WIN one of three Adidas Al Rihla footballs. The official match ball of FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.
