Spellings

We are now sending spellings home weekly in Year 1. We have provided your child with a spellings book. Each week they will receive a new set of spellings to learn at home, based on what they have been learning in their phonics lessons. The new spellings will be stuck in the front of that book. We ask that you help your child to build upon their hard work from their phonics lesson buy helping them to practise and learn to spell those words. However, your child will not have a formal spelling test each week. In the back of the book, teachers in Key Stage 1 will be writing any words your child is struggling with personally so they can also practise those words at home. This ensures that spellings build upon what has been taught in phonics as well as in literacy lessons. This spellings system allows spellings to be tailored to individual children.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask Mr Thomas or Miss Lloyd.

Mrs Simpson – no spellings

Miss Lloyd – no spellings

Miss Kay/Miss Heydon – no spellings

Year 4

Please Note:  The children are really excited about the dragons they have created and couldn’t wait to show them off and write them into their stories.  Thanks for all your support in helping to stimulate a love of literacy.

We are currently reading Cressida Cowell as a part of the We Are Reading campaign in school.

 

If you can, please read to your child and allow your child to read to you every day. It makes a massive difference to their confidence. Get your child to point out their favorite adjectives and get them to put them into a sentence. We are also looking at expanded noun phrases to help paint a picture for the reader.
