Throughout the year, every child will receive spellings (age and stage appropriate) which should be learned at home. The children are expected to learn them and use them in their daily writing.

There are a few simple steps, which as a parent you can follow to help your child learn their spellings each week.

  1. Practise writing them out whilst they are looking at them.
  2. Cover them up and let them have a go.
  3. Repeat this process about 5 times.
  4. Get your child to write the words into sentences to make sure they understand the meaning of the them, and that they can use them correctly in their writing.

Please see the link below to see the spelling lists which will be sent out throughout the year.

Next year we are planning to take Year 5 children on an education visit to London in June 2016. This will be a wonderful and educational experience. The children are very enthusiastic and are wanting to raise money to contribute to the cost. They have decided to have an ‘enterprise Friday’ each week to raise funds.
