We can do it.



Spelling challenges will be sent home weekly. You might like to practice these words with your child so that they are confident during their spelling challenge. We will also practice these words regularly in school too. IT IS NOT ESSENTIAL THAT THEY GET THEM ALL CORRECT ALL THE TIME. IT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAT YOUR CHILD CAN APPLY THESE SPELLING RULES TO THEIR WRITING ALL THE TIME. We need to learn to spell all the Year 1 Common Exception Words (CEWs) by the end of the summer term. These words will be displayed in our classrooms and removed once we have all learnt them all by heart. Termly updates will be sent home so you can see how your child is progressing.
