A note about spellings: Please can we ask all parents to support their children in the learning of the Common Exception Words found at the back of the spelling books. In class, we are going to be focusing on the teaching of spelling patterns through 3 targeted lessons a week using the No Nonsense Spelling Scheme. Children must keep reading every day at home and practising their times tables.
