Your child has been assigned a spelling group and you can find this group name in their planner.

Please print off their word list and practice at home.

The spelling test will be every Thursday and results will be written in the school planner.

You can also practice these tricky words and high frequency words at home.

Below are some links that you may find useful to use at home with your child/children. It is entirely up to you if you access these sites or not; they are simply there for extra activities to undertake at home. Please don't forget to use Education City too!! Enjoy!

Dear parents,

Term 3 is very short, so the pupils will need to use Microsoft Paint at home and design a poster about any topic they have learned this year, and apply their typing skills.

The poster needs to have the pupil's name, class colour and ICT subject on it.
Size A4: 21 cm x 29.7 cm

They will need to print it and bring it when they have ICT. The due date is the 21st of May.

Thank you
Mrs Prado
