Spelling

Each week your child will be given words to learn at home.  The spellings are taken from the Year 3 and 4 statutory spelling list provided by the government (to view the whole list, please click here), spelling patterns taught in class and two words that they are spelling incorrectly in their writing books. 

Spellings are checked on Monday and new words sent home on a Tuesday (from week 2).  To view this term's spellings, please click here.

Web Page Updates

Please note that the school has decided to upload all photos and updates on Class Dojo rather than the class web page.  This will be updated termly instead.  If you need a reminder for the Class Dojo log-in, please see the office.
