New skill

Most of the children have already read at least 3 times this week- well done, keep it up!  Next week we are focusing on the skill of checking.  We teach the children that you are never too old or too clever to check your work.  This may be checking the answer to a calculation to see if it makes sense, check your bag is packed in the evening or check your uniform before leaving for school.

For their skills homework this week I am asking the children to check and edit some writing that contains common mistakes  This is an important skill as often when we re-read our writing we read what we expect to see rather than what is really there.
