SPELLINGS

By the end of year 4, the new curriculum states that the children are required to be able to spell a list of key words. Please find below the list of words for children in years 3 and 4. This is to ensure that the children are prepared for year 5.

By the end of year 6, the new curriculum states that the children are required to be able to spell a second set of key words. Please find below the list of words for children in years 5 and 6.

MATHS

As part of our implementation of the new curriculum for maths we have developed a set of Key Instant Recall Facts. These will be spent home termly for the children to practise and learn.
