I have decided to stop setting spelling homework for the rest of the term, as the intensity of work in class will be reducing over the next three weeks. However, if you do wish to practice spelling with your child, I would recommend practicing the /ai/ pattern with them:
For reading, could you try and read half of the book for Wednesday, and finish books for Friday and return them that day. I will make a decision closer to the weekend about whether I think we have the energy to continue reading homework next week!
Thanks a lot,
