Each week the children will be taught spellings and they will be tested on these. They will added to the class page so that grown-ups can help children practice.




Children may be asked to complete work at home. This will only be done if a child is deemed to need a little more practice in order to better understand the learning in school, NOT AS A PUNISHMENT.
