Spelling homework and rules will not be sent home until after half term. Until this time children are expected to practice the list of words that they are expected to know by the end of year 3 and 4. This list is in the children's reading records.
When Spelling homework begins the spelling system introduced last year will continue. A spelling rule and words including this rule will come home on a Monday (following a spelling lesson based on the rule) and words will be tested on the following Monday. We recommend that children practise their spellings for 5 minutes or so each day rather than a longer period all at once.
