Our Read Write Inc Spelling programme began on Monday and we have made some alterations to how pupils will practise their spellings at home.
What they will practise at home:
Every Wednesday the pupils in Year 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 will be given a list of eight spellings to be practised at home. Six of the eight spellings will link to the spelling rule that your child is currently learning in school. Two of the eight spellings will be red or orange words (these words do not link to the spelling rule but are words which your child will be expected to spell). They will bring their spellings home in their light blue Spelling Book.
What they will be tested on:
Every Monday (Tuesday for Year 2 pupils) ten spellings will be tested and the pupils will record them in their Spelling Book. Eight spellings will be the words that your child has been practising at home. The extra two spellings will link to the spelling rule they are studying. This is because we want the pupils to focus upon and recall the spelling rule which they are learning.
If you have any queries or questions about Read Write Inc Spelling, please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher.
I would also like to express our gratitude for your fantastic response to our homework questionnaire. We are currently collating and analysing the results and are determined to ensure our homework policy is the most effective it can be for our pupils. Thank you for your continued support and co-operation.
