Each child will be given 2 books to take home and read. Books bags should be brought into school on a Monday for books to be changed. Rereading books is important to develop fluency and comprehension, so please encourage your child to read their book more than once. When reading with an adult in school, we will be using school books and keeping a separate reading record. Children therefore only need to bring their book bags to school when they need their reading book to be changed. Please read with your child regularly at home.


We have introduced a new spelling scheme to help us improve the standard of spelling across the school. Spellings will now be taught through investigations and a range of short focused activities which are all matched to the national curriculum. The children will be given five personal spellings (their focus five) and they are supported to use these in their written work in all subject areas. As soon as they have shown they are able to use a spelling, it is replaced with a new one. This new way of teaching spelling replaces the weekly whole class spelling test, weekly spelling lists will not, therefore, be sent home.


Your child has a personal login for Times Tables Rockstars to help them to do this. This term, we are practicing our 3s and 4s. Children are able to access the teacher set times table through the garage option on Times Tables Rockstars.
