    Spellings – Spellings are tested weekly on a Thursday afternoon. You will find your child’s most up to date spelling list in their blue spelling book. Can they beat last week’s score?

    Reading – Your child will change their books on the same day each week – details of this can be found on the front of their yellow reading record. Please ensure your child has their books with them on this day. Don’t forget to log in the reading record to show when you have read with your child.

    Phonics – Children take part in daily phonics sessions as part of the ‘Read Write Inc’ phonics programme. Please find below links to the speed sounds chart which outlines the letters and sounds that the children will progress through over the year. You can also find a guide to the letter formation rhymes that we use in school to support your child with correct letter formation at home.
