Homework and Spellings
Spellings will be set every Friday in the yellow books and tested the following week. We are currently teaching the children a variety of strategies to learn these independently at home. Please encourage your children to use these to support their learning of the spellings. Homework will be sent home in a red folder every Friday and due in the following Thursday.
