Children have weekly spellings which they will learn in class during the week. The children will have a spelling quiz on a Friday afternoon. For extra practice, a copy of the weekly spellings sent home every Monday. Please ensure that children bring their home spelling books into school every Monday.
Each child will have a reading book which is appropriate for their reading level. Children are expected to read three nights per week for 20 minutes. Their progress can be recorded in their reading diaries which must be signed by an adult each time they read. Please support your child with their reading by asking them questions about the text. Your child needs to bring their reading book and reading diary to school daily as they will be given opportunities throughout the week to read both this book and a variety of texts.
It is essential that ALL children are fluent in their times tables up to 12x12 by the end of Year 4. We will continue to practice these in school both as part of maths lessons and using Times Tables Rockstars. Please ensure your child engages regularly with TTRS to support their learning.
