The children will be given a number of spellings to learn each week and will be tested every Friday morning. Please work with your children throughout the week to ensure the best possible results.

Your child should bring home their reading book every day and we ask that you spend time reading and talking to your child about their book.

Your help in both these matters is much appreciated.



Every Friday as part of BIG MATHS your child will undertake a couple of weekly tests. These tests will be sent home for you to look at and see how your child is progressing.

One very easy way you can help your child is by encouraging them to learn their tables.
