Home reading

Home readers are to be brought to school every day, please make a note of the page you have read up to each night and write a short note about what you have read. This can be recorded by parent/guardians or the children themselves.


I wonder who will win the reading race?







Home learning

Please note - that there have been some changes in regards to home learning - see further information for details. 




As well as a weekly spelling detective homework, children will need to be working on learning a list of statutory spellings each term.  These will be tested in class.  It is important that children know the spelling and meaning of these words.  Please see the document below for the termly lists.


Times Tables

Don't forget to keep learning your times tables and to log on to times table rock stars.

Have you got what it takes to be a rock hero?
