We have some great activities planned, both in and outside of class, and have organised some exciting visits and visitors too!

All children must complete the weekly spelling sheet (using the process of Look, Cover, Write and Check which is outlined on the front cover of your child’s half termly spelling booklet). Spelling homework is due in by the Friday of each week. Once marked, each child’s weekly spellings score will be added to the table on the back of their spelling booklet.
