Tricky words and spelling.

The children will initially be sent home with tricky words to read from the Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 tricky word list. Once they can confidently read all the words they will then be sent home in their spelling book for them to learn to spell. Spelling Investigation homework will be sent home each week linked to letters and sounds.



Children are responsible for changing their own books, this will usually take place in the morning.

Children will either be heard individually by an adult or in a guided reading group at least once a week.

They will be bench-marked at least once a term. Bench marking will take place when children

demonstrate the necessary skills during guided reading.



PE is on a Wednesday afternoon with Mr.Cura and Thursday morning with Ms Holmes.
