Spellings are given out on a Thursday for a test the following Wednesday.
Every four weeks we will have an overview test which will revist a selection of the previous weeks learning to ensure spellings have been remembered.
Spellings are made up of a combination of alternative phonic spellings, new spelling rules and common exception words (CEW)
The spelling test will consist of sentences which use each word in the correct context to help children with their understanding of the meaning of new words each week.
It would be a really good idea to encourage your child to write their spellings in their own sentences each week. This can be completed in their homework book.
