We are now using Spelling Shed for Spelling sessions. Each assignment is set from Friday to Friday- we go through these words Monday - Wednesday and are tested on them on a Wednesday. We use Thursday and Friday to go over any words that we found tricky :) 

Reading at home
We encourage pupils to read a wide range of texts at home. In order to do this we are operating a reading challenge. When a pupil completes a book they earn points. Pupils can also accrue additional points by completing a 'Book Review' or a 'Reading Challenge Card'. Every time a pupil reaches a certain amount of points they move up to different levels. Each level entails a different reward. The 'Book Review' sheets and 'Reading Challenge Cards' can be found below as PDF files. You are under no obligation to print these off and pupils are welcome to complete these tasks of whatever they have to hand. Equally, if you let us know we can print off a blank version of these for the pupils to take home. Once a pupil has read a book, completed a review or a challenge card- please pop this on to their portfolio so a member of staff can log and tally their points. Pupils are welcome to take books from the classroom home, when they finish reading them we ask that they are brought back in so they can be exchanged for a new book. All books that are returned are quarantined for 3 days before being available to take home again.
