Here are some reading questions to ask your child during reading time.

In September 2016, we launched into Mathletics which is a fun and interactive Maths resources online that children can use to practise skills and improve their learning in specific areas. Teachers are continuing to set homework fortnightly on Mathletics and they review how each child has done. Every child can practise their homework as many times as they like until they are confident. All children have a unique username and password given to them by their teacher.

Last year, we held some Maths and English workshops for parents. Please click on the links below to view the hand-outs from these workshops.

Skillswise aims to help adults improve their reading, writing and maths skills. It is targeted at Level 1 of the adult Basic Skills Literacy & Numeracy Curriculums for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

English

In class, children use writing mats to help them improve their writing. There are 3 types of writing mats used: ‘working towards’, ‘working at the expected standard’ and ‘working at greater depth’.

Below are a list of key websites you may wish to visit in order to help your child with any English and SPAG work they may have:
