However, we will try to listen to your child read as much as we can.  Please ensure you listen to your child read as often as possible during the week and note in their reading record that you have done so. The more they read the bigger advantage they will have. It is very important for your child's development to read as much as possible Please ensure your child brings their reading book into school every day.

Spellings: Your child will come home with a new list of spellings on a Monday which they need to practise each day.  Please encourage your child to read, sound out and write the words carefully. All children will be tested on the Friday.
