SPELLING AND TIMES TABLES
Spelling and times tables tests/fun challenges will take place every THURSDAY. A new spelling pattern and list of words will also be shared in the homework books every THURSDAY. We will introduce the spelling patterns in class on Monday mornings and then ask the pupils to practise the words at home during the week. In order for us to prepare the spellings for the following week, please ensure that your child returns their homework book to school every Thursday. Thank you.
