It is important that your child reads texts which are suitable for their age and ability and which challenge their thinking. Remember - just because a book is popular, does not mean it is worthwhile. Please help your child to choose appropriate books.

Spelling homework is given on a Monday and to be completed for a Friday, when there will be a spelling test. Your child should use the 'Look, Cover, Write, Check' method to learn their spellings.
