Spellings --> Each child will get a set of new spellings on a Friday. The test will be a week later on a Friday (this will occasionally change due to school holidays). The spellings are now written as dictation sentences. In the test, children will be expected to write out the whole sentence but will still get a mark out of 20 for their key spellings.
Reading and times tables: You are expected to read your school book and practise your times tables daily. Please remember to sign this off in the reading records.

Please use your times tables record sheets that you have been given to record which tables you have been practising. All you need to do is put the short date in the column. This is for your own personal use at home but I will run competitions from time to time to see who has been practising the most.
Year 5 are now doing daily times tables challenges and if your child beats a best time, they will be entered into the draw to win a special prize at the end of the Autumn term.
