When you come back to school, we are going to do a small assessment to see if we are ready to move to phase 5! So, this week I thought we’d have a little practise of everything you already know including tricky words and alien words. I hope you’ve got your competitive heads on today! I’ve found a phonics version of Monopoly for you to play with your family.
