Things that help us learn

We use Mathletics to support children’s home learning and we will be continuing to use Google Classroom as our online learning platform in Key Stage 1. Reading books are sent home on a weekly basis which are pitched at your child’s current phonic ability and at a level they can decode and comprehend at a 95% accuracy. Weekly spellings are sent home to consolidate the phonetic sounds the children have been learning that week.
