SPELLING AT HOME
Spelling practise at home can often be challenging. Why not try using a multi-sensory approach! Try making the spellings using play dough, using coloured pens, using toys to make the shape of the letters or even during baking with flour! Rap, sing or link spellings to stories and shapes.

READING AT HOME
Our whole school expectation is that children read at home at least 3 times per week, this can be to an adult or independently.
