Class 1 & 2 Summer Homework

summer homework

Summer is finally here! The children have worked hard, and deserve a rest, need to play and enjoy time outside the school. Here is a selection of ideas if you find you have some spare time:

  • read every day: read to your child, and tell them to read to themselves. In English and any other language! It doesn´t have to be a book, it could be something from the internet, a leaflet, magazine, newspaper or even the back of a cereal packet!
  • write every day: have your child write a summer journal of what they have experienced daily
  • above all, treasure the time you spend together!

Some interesting websites 



El Pais de las letras
Any book from El Barco de Vapor (Wendy Harmer, Perla, etc.)

We have thoroughly enjoyed teaching Classes 1 & 2 this year.
Take care and have a lovely summer!

Well done on a super year! We hope you have a lovely summer and take the time to relax and enjoy yourselves. Here are a selection of ideas if you find you have some spare time!

It is VITAL that you keep reading thoughout the summer. If you can, try and read (in English) to an adult every day. It doesn´t have to be a book, it could be something from the internet, a leaflet, magazine, newspaper or even the back of a cereal packet!

2. SUMMER DIARY (Optional)
We have given each child a small book for them to keep a diary account of their summer holidays if they wish to. They could include pictures and photos too. You can also make a short video which you can show in 4th class.
