Please send children in with the following:

Times Table Check


Times table Rockstars is up and running and we encourage all children to practice as much as possible to cement their understanding of Multiplication and Division. Log-ons can be found in your child's reading diary.




Spellings will be issued after a recap of sounds and letter combinations that children need support with. They will change weekly and homework will be through The Spelling Shed (Log-ons are in student diaries).



We encourage reading to take place at least 5 times a week. We ask for your support in logging it in their reading records which they should bring to school daily. Reading Eggs is still an option if you are looking for reading material - Reading Egg log-ons are in student diaries.



We follow the Letterjoin handwriting program. It develops a cursive handwriting style.
