Correct Spellings


Other: Project Homework for Week 5




So, we are fast approaching the end of your penultimate term at St Joseph's. How  time has flown! 

To ensure you  reach your full potential, we request that you continue to do your homework and hand it in on time. We also ask you to partake in a little technology once in a while, focusing on these websites: 


You can even borrow books from the library and do quizzes on them at home on Accelarated Reading:

Remember, if we are not at school for a while, you have your spelling lists, grammar and Maths books and your reminder books to revise from. Making posters or taking notes in your grammar books is an excellent way of preparing yourself for those little 'quizzes' we have in May. 

Let’s continue with this party!





Homework can be found in the children's green homework book. It is based on the Maths and English CGP books .
