From the week beginning the 9th November, we will be starting a new Spelling programme which is designed to support the children with not only learning spellings, but ensuring they retain these spellings and apply them within their written work. Due to the structure of this programme, we will no longer be holding a weekly spelling test on a Friday. Instead, the children will be routinely tested on the focus words throughout the week during spelling lessons.
Each week, we will upload the spelling focus on to this web-page to show you what spelling patterns/rules your child will be learning and will provide you with a list of suggested words that you could practice with your child at home. Feel free to test your own child on these words throughout the week and then return to them at a later date to see if they have retained them.
We hope this new programme will have a wonderful impact on your child's learning and will equip them with the spelling skills and strategies needed to support with their written work.
