Spelling and Phonics Groups:
The children have phonics sessions in school daily and will know who their phonics teacher is. Words are sent home every Friday and will follow spelling patterns learnt in these phonics sessions. These words will then be used in a spelling test, also on Friday mornings.
The next spelling test will be on 19th January
