Every week, your child will be taught a new spelling rule to practise during the week, ready for a spelling test on Friday. Please spend time at home practising these spellings using ‘Look, say, cover, write, check’ in the Spelling Homework Booklets, as well as discussing the spelling rule. Please ensure spelling Homework Books are kept in school bags.
