This year, we use Nessy for spellings. Nessy provides the children with the chance to understand the formation of words.

The children have been placed in to Nessy groups, based on an assesment. In these groups, the children are taught the rule for the spellings.

The children then have work based on this rule and are then given spellings to learn over the next week. 

Nessy tests are every Friday morning.



Homework is given out on a Friday and is to be returned, completed, to school on the following Thursday.

It is an extension of what we have been doing in school that week.

Homework sometimes may be set on the Google Classroom.
