Spellings

 

New spelling words will be given to practise and learn each Monday. On the following Monday children will be tested to check their progress. We will focus on specific spelling patterns during the week in class.

 

We will hand out a piece of maths and literacy homework each week when appropriate - usually on a Wednesday - which needs to be handed in by the following Wednesday.

Occasionally, we may set a piece of homework to support other curriculum work we are doing in class.

In addition, try numerous fun educational games and learning resources at:

Reading

Each child will be set a points target which is related to the number of words in books they are expected to read each term. A quiz will be taken when a book is finished, to check comprehension.

To move up a level, every child will be expected to complete five quizzes scoring at least 80% on each quiz. A minimum of 15 minutes reading is expected most evenings during the week.
