Each week, spellings will be given out to learn at home.
Each pupil will have a spelling book to both practise their spelling in and complete their spelling test. This means you will be able to look at the back of the book to see how your child has performed in the weekly test.
Spelling tests take place on Friday. New spellings are also given out on a Friday in order to give pupils a week to practise.
Try to encourage your child to learn their spellings in a range of ways:
- Read out and write
- Look, cover, write and check
- Cursive handwriting
- Spellings in sentences (this will really help with the understanding of the word by putting each spelling into a context)
