Your child has been given a reading record book. Please ensure that your child has this book with them everyday. We will record when we have heard them read and ask that parents do the same. Please listen to your child read daily and record in their reading record at least once a week.
Spellings are based on high frequency and common exception words as outlined in the National Curriculum. We have a sound of the week which forms the focus for spellings. Please support your child in their learning, extend them by looking at other words with the same patterns and using them in writing tasks.
