Home learning


Please make sure your child reads aloud to an adult daily and recorded on the 'Boom Reader' app. This is so important for their journey to become an effective reader. Please read and share other types of books with them. Your child will also regularly choose library books to bring home and share with you. 


Your child will also be reading shared texts in class daily and also read to an adult regualrly and you see these on the Boom Reader app.



This is an app that helps your child to develop a fluency in number facts. They will earn certificates in assembly when they move through the levels.

These will also available online on Seesaw.


PE days are Tuesday and Friday so please ensure that your child has the appropriate clothing for these days.  Earrings should be removed.

Any homework will be set on Seesaw, including spelling sheets and Big Write.


Don't forget open door Friday! Please come in and have a look at your children's work and share with them the amazing ideas and all the hard work they have put in throughout the year.
