Spellings and Homework



As we have an Inset day on Friday, this week the spellings will be tested on Thursday.



Homework is set each Friday and needs to be completed by the following Friday. 



This week we will be practising number facts. Please support your child to learn the addition facts on the document below. Start with the Y1 facts and progress to the Y2 ones if they are confident. We are working towards instant recall of these facts, so the children should be able to say the answers with speed, instead of counting on their fingers.


They could also use this interactive game to practise quick recall of number facts:
