Reading Records



Children are expected to read at least 4 times a week to an adult.

Please sign your child’s reading record book and bring to school on Monday for us to see.


It is really important to discuss the book with your child e.g. making predictions, using inference skills, understanding the vocabulary, getting them to explain, retrieve and summarise.

Children are expected to practise and learn their times tables using the website: Times Tables Rockstars


They will be tested weekly on a Friday.


They can also use other methods to help learn them e.g. writing them out, saying them aloud or even singing them!


Check regularly and compete in the battles on Rockstars. 

Children are expected to log onto the website: Spelling Frame to practise and test themselves on their spellings.  There are also games to play.


Children are taught their spelling rule every Thursday.

They practise their spellings by writing them out as handwriting and other games and will be tested on their spelling rules every half term.
