 Additional Learning at Home:

 Bug Club

Children are able to access reading materials catered to their specific reading level on Bug Club. They have their own individual log in and can choose a book from here to read at home as well as their home reader.

Times Table Rockstars

Children should be accessing TT Rockstars at least once a week as timetables are a fundamental skill throughout life and play a big part of our maths lessons. Again, children have their own log ins to access at home.

Hit the Button

Children can use hit the button to improve their fluency in core maths skills such as addition and subtraction. It comes in the form of a game so is a great way to learn and have fun at the same time.

Home Working
As you know, at the moment there are strict guidelines that our school are following regarding COVID in correlation with the government updates. Below is some work for your child to be getting on with at home. This is as well as those activities listed above like: TT Rockstars, Bug Club, Language Angels and Hit The Button. If your child is isolating, it is essential that they continue to complete work whilst not attending school so that they don't face further struggle upon returning to school.
Thank you in advance for your ongoing support,
