Spelling Homework is not often given out as we now teach spelling patterns in our English lessons.  We test the children when needed in these sessions.

Reading books should be brought home every night and returned to school the next day. Reading should be recorded on the record sheet in school when a book is completed. The children then complete an appropriate book review sheet before choosing a new book.
