Children have all read in class and selected a home reading book to bring home. Please listen to your child read regularly and add a comment to his/her reading record to update us on progress at home. Children should bring reading books and records into school each day.



Each week, children have been asked to spend a couple of sessions  on Century Tech to work through their personalised pathways  (at the top of the screen on Century Tech). The activities are personalised and include short teaching videos which aim to develop English and maths skills further. Children will also receive weekly 'nuggets' of English and maths, set by the class teacher, to consolidate our current learning. New homework tasks are added each Wednesday. Please support your child to complete these tasks by the following Wednesday.


Usernames and passwords have been sent home in the previous class. Please contact us if you need any assistance to access your account.
