Homework will be sent out via Google Classroom on a Friday which will consolidate the learning the children have done in the week.
Spellings will be related to the Focus of our Read, Write, Inc (RWI) lessons. They will follow a spelling rule or pattern, for example: prefixes/words with the 'ch' sound/ suffixes/ homophones etc.
Each week the children will learn 6 'Focus' words and 6 'Jumping Orange Words', which are words from the Statutory Year 3 and 4 Spelling list. These are taught and revised in our RWI lessons throughout the week too.
There will not be a formal weekly spelling test, instead the children will be tested through their application of the spellings using word searches, crosswords, word games and other activities. During the first RWI session of the week there will also be a 'Speed Spell' section where the children will be asked to write down the 6 Jumping Orange Words they have learnt in the previous week.
Please do not hesitate to speak to me if there is a problem with your child's homework. If you require paper copies please let me know and I will make sure your child has them to bring home.
