In response to feedback at Parents' Evenings, we've produced a Reading Guide for Parents. In the guide, you'll find some top tips on hearing your child read, advice on finding and choosing books and some useful questions to ask your child when you read together. I hope you find it helpful.
At South Wootton Junior School, we teach spellings in a consistent way across all year groups.
We are required by the National Curriculum to cover certain word lists and spelling patterns in Y3/4 and in Y5/6. In addition to this, we work on the 100 and 200 words identified as the most commonly used. These are known as the High Frequency Words (HFW).
The following bullet points will clarify how we set, test and assess the spellings your child will be given.
It is really important for the children to spend a little time each week learning their spellings. This should be done in their purple spelling books. It is a small investment in time, but can make a huge difference to their progress.
