    Term 2, Week 5

    May 9th, 2010

    This week all three levels will focus on revising the key words for this term.  Ensure that children cut the words out individually and keep them in a small plastic bag (e.g. a bank bag).  This helps to avoid them simply reciting all the words on a page.  They need to learn to recognise and ’sound out’ each word.

    You can also use these words in a spelling test on Friday.  It is important that children can write the words as well as read them.  Use the look-cover-write-check method to learn the spellings each day.
