Spellings are important for all the children to learn. The spellings are given out on Tuesday and tested the following Tuesday. It is paramount the children do learn these as it helps with their reading and writing.
Reading- Each child has a reading book tailored to their own individual level whereupon they access ‘Accelerated Reader’ to do a quiz after reading their book. It is important that children read every day as it builds their confidence, helps with their writing and increases their fluency.
Homework is given out weekly on a Thursday and the children are encourage to complete this over the week/ weekend. Homework club is provided as a provision for children on Tuesday nights. The homework should be returned no later than Wednesday. The homework either supports their learning, helps them practise or is a mini project.
