Reading : Decoding text, focusing on inference and deduction, retrieving information and answering SATs type questions in preparation for the tests next term.
Spellings : Children have 10 spellings to learn each week. They should check the meanings of these words and show understanding of the spelling rule by choosing a further 5 words. They are tested on those spellings weekly. We will also be preparing for the Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling test.
