It’s the Easter holidays and, in line with our Homework Policy, teachers do not set spellings or homework tasks. Instead, enjoy the sunny weather by getting active: a trip to the park, a game of football, a cycle ride or a long walk!
During the holidays, two of our teachers will visit Italy, one will be in Russia and one will be in…Barry Island!

We’re learning to spell words with the ‘igh’ letter pattern.

24 February 2012
This is our last week of practising words which have split digraphs. The last ‘e’ in the words isn’t a sound that we say, but it works with another letter to make the sound; for example, hop (with a short ‘o’ sound) to hope (with a longer ‘oh’ sound).
These will be tested on Friday 02 March.
It’s the holidays…
…so there are no spellings or homework activities.
Instead, enjoy a winter walk, the marvellous Muppets movie, some cool culture at a gallery or museum… Enjoy the half-term break.
03 February 2012
We’re still practising words which have split digraphs. This week, we’re looking at ‘u –e‘, for example, tub (with a short ‘u’ sound) changes to tube (with a longer ‘u’ sound).
These will be tested on Friday 10 February.
