Spellings

Alongside the weekly spellings that the children receive in their spelling books it is important that they also learn to easily read and spell the first 100 High Frequency Words (the words that are regularly used).  These are divided into 4 groups according to the phase of Letters and Sounds that your child is working on.  There is a further 200 High Frequency Words following these 4 groups.

In addition there are lists of words that the children need to learn that do not follow the spelling “rules”.  These are referred to as key stage one Common Exception Words.

 

 

Autumn Term 2018

This term the class will be going on three Educational visits.  These visits will provide a fun and valuable learning experience which will link with teaching back at school.  This was highlighted as a strong feature of our school by OFSTED on their last visit.
