Last year we were lucky enough to have a handful of fantastic library volunteers who opened our School Library from 8.15-9am every morning. This meant parents and children could visit the library together to choose books and spend some time together exploring our book shelves. 

 

For this to continue, we really need some more volunteers to commit to opening the library just one morning per week. Please help!

for ore details or to volunteer, please contact Miss Barnes (Year 4)

JOY OF READING WORKSHOP with Bryony Freedman 2nd Nov

Helping your child with reading

Do you want to help your child with their spellings? Look at this document.. it has so many great ideas!

Spellings are taught by spelling pattern, with homework encouraging children to investigate words that fit within that pattern and even words that work against the rule.

An example of this may be words that used silent letters; children are then asked to find words that use silent letters, ready for a random 10 word test by their teacher.

Children also have to know how to spell mathematical terms and apply them when writing about maths.

 

Below is a link to the National Curriculum words for each year group. Children in older years must still know the words from previous year groups. Please encourage your child to learn and apply spellings as often as possible.

   

 

Below are some useful documents that show each of the skills your child is learning in easy 'I can..' statements. By using these, you will know what we aim to teach your child this year and the skills they should be practising. Try not to worry and don't begin teaching your child anything too complex at home but do use them to support project work and homework to move your child's learning on as much as you can.
