    Each week we will have a new spelling pattern, our spelling test is on a Friday. Children are given 10 spelling words that follow our spelling pattern and will be given 2 surprise words in the test from our Year 3/4 spelling list. 


Topic Traveller Homework:

Each half term, you will be given a topic traveller question. This is an optional task that can be completed over the half term. At the beginning of each half term, a question will be sent home that needs answering in a creative way. There will be a hand in date given for this task and examples of what things you may want to try. This is a good opportunity to get involved in your child's learning and find out what they have been doing.
