Mrs Anderson, Mrs Eccles, Mr Connaghan


In their diaries children should record their spelling, tables and reading practice each night. Diaries will be stamped each day. If they have not been completed, dinnertime will be used to ensure regular practice occurs. 


Children are tested on 5 spellings every 2 weeks on a one-to-one basis. These are linked to the National Curriculum spelling patterns. The stages correleate to year groups. In addition to this there is a Friday weekly spelling test using the year 5/6 spelling list from the curriculum. 

Multiplication tables are tested and practised in school on a 2 week one-to-one basis. Children who can recall all their tables rapidly will be tested periodically throughout the half-term.

Children have a reading book and a library book. They can change these themselves during break and dinner time. As long as your child is reading then home books, comics, newpapers, magazines are all good practice.
