We have registered your child to use Reading Plus, a really lovely online resource that has a wealth of literature for your child to read at their level. This will support their reading accuracy, speed and comprehension skills. Please encourage your child to access this at least 3 times per week.

Words of the week – we are introducing our children to new vocabulary every week. These words will be sent home on a weekly basis. Please ask your child what they mean and encourage them to use them as often as possible when speaking. 

Please encourage your child to read a few pages of their reading book every night. We love to read in our school and believe ‘The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you will go’

A child

A book

A read

A chat

That is the way the mind grows

Not with a test, but a tale…

We have been tasting seasonal foods in Design Technology lessons.  Do you know what fruit and vegetables are in season at the moment?

Using our coding skills to design and make a space invader game.

We worked as a team to see who could build the highest and the widest tower using marshmallows and cocktail sticks.  Why don’t you try it.  Use 20 mini marshmallows and 20 sticks.
