Spelling:

As you know, spelling is now a massive part of the curriculum and we want your children to be fantastic spellers! Throughout the year, we aim to teach the children some new spelling conventions. Please have a look in side bar to the right of this page and you will see a spelling document – this will provide you with the spelling conventions we will look at throughout the year and all of the spellings your children need to know how to spell by the end of the year. If they can practise these at home as well as in school – that would be a massive help! Thank you for your ongoing support!!
