Spelling Lists

Each week, your child will get their own spelling sheet with an activity page and the 'look, cover, write, check' practice page. All spellings sheets are collected in on the Friday in preparation for our weekly spelling test. Please encourage your child to practice their spellings at home. You could test your child throughout the week or use the spelling shed app (see link in Spelling file). All children have their very own log in inside their reading record. Any issues, do not hesitate to speak to me.
