It is so important to read on a regular basis with your child. Language, vocabulary and imagination are promoted through a love of books and can make a huge impact on Reading, Writing and wider skills. We request that parents/carers listen and read to your child on a regular basis. Children will be given different level, colour coded books to match their reading ability and the school has a wealth of texts that can be accessed through the library spaces around school.

If you need any help with accessing the programme then please let us know so we can help you - here is a guide to getting started with the app - How to use the SeeSaw app.
Each class sends home a half-termly or topic based set of challenges. These activities are designed to give you ideas about creative ways of talking to your children about their learning in school and providing wider opportunities to embed learning taking place in class. The trickier the challenge the more house points can be won.
Each child in Years 1 to 6 have been given a log in for the online Times Tables Rock Stars app which is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice. Children can earn different levels of Rockstar status the more battle challenges they win and can even play against staff.
