Children will bring home 10 spellings a week to learn. It will depend on their current spelling ability as to which group of spellings they will be required to learn. You will find your child's spellings in their homework diary with the date they were given.
At the beginning of each half term the children will be retested on a random selection of their groups spellings to see if they have retained them or not. It would help your child if you could revisit some spellings given in previous weeks to see if they can still remember them!
In addition to this, in class children will be given a list of high frequency words (kept at the front of their English book) which they need to learn to spell correctly in their written work.
