This year, it is so important that children are completing weekly spellings, reading and homework at home to help them prepare for SATS. Children are expected to read 5 times over the week. Homework will be given out on a Monday and returned on a Friday. Spellings will be given out on a Monday with the test happening the following Monday. If, for any reason, children cannot complete these, please provide a reason in the child’s diary.
