Homework

Spellings : Following our spelling scheme, new spellings will be given out on Monday at the beginning of each new unit. The children will have two weeks to learn their spellings and they will be tested at the end of the second week (these will be based on patterns covered in our phonics/spelling lessons).

Homework activities : Given out on Fridays, for handing in by the following Wednesday.

Reading : It is important that a range of texts are read at home and try to do this every day. Whilst reading with your child, I would encourage you to draw attention to: punctuation, grammar, sentence structures, vocabulary choices and the organisation of writing (i.e. paragraphing and layout).
