At Olympic Primary School, we are working to embed the key skills of the English curriculum.
It is expected that every child reads five times a week as this will develop fluency within their reading.
With the new demands of the new curriculum, it is essential children are able to spell. Some effective strategies used in school are: quick write, pyramid spellings and look cover write check. All these strategies help to embed spelling patterns and rules.
Please take the time to work with your child as it underpins many other elements of the English curriculum. If you are unsure what your child’s writing targets are, please ask your child’s class teacher.
On the side of the page are some great websites that will help your children embed this knowledge at home.
