You can help by:
* Encouraging your child to complete their weekly spellings.
* Hearing your child read at least 4 times a week and logging this on BoomReader.
Reading is an essential part of your child’s learning and progress, and it is important to talk to them about the book to check they understand it.
In Y5, children are expected to know how to spell all the Y3/4 spellings and begin to learn the Y5/6 spellings (see below). Please support your child in learning these words.
