English is the core of the curriculum; any extra reading and writing you do at home will only benefit your learning in all subjects. Our advice to you is to read around your topics and engage in manageable activities which allow you to retain the information you need in class: a 'little and often' approach is the key to a focused, developing mindset.
This first half term's home learning focus for English is SPELLING. This is an area which many of us find difficult and yet regular practice can make an enormous difference to progress. These sites are both functional and fun. Give them a go and remember: let us know on DB what you have done because we love celebrating independent learners.
