Spellings will be posted on a Friday and will be tested the following Friday. The spellings will also be put on Spelling Shed to practise.

It is vital you read with your child as much as you possibly can. This will help them to be successful across the curriculum.

Online resources: Please encourage your child to use the online resources such as IXL, TTRS, Spelling Shed, Read Theory, Bug Club, Purple Mash, Espresso to support their learning.

Class Dojo

We love to use Class Dojo to communicate with you at home and it is our main form of home-school communication. Therefore, it is extremely important to please make sure you are connected to Class Dojo and to keep an eye on it. On Class Dojo we update parents with day-to-day class and whole school information, photos and updates.

Due to the COVID restrictions and the risk assessment, we are unfortunately unable to talk to you face to face as we are trying our absolute best to minimise the risk for staff and families. Therefore, it is even more important for you to use Class Dojo to communicate with your class teacher or year leader. A key priority of ours is the relationships between teachers and adults at home to ensure that the children are fully supported at home and at school. 

Communication is a crucial part of this process so please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher or year leader if you have any questions, comments or worries.
