Spellings will be tested on a Monday and new spellings will be sent home on the same day. Please ensure that your child remembers to bring in their folder.

Times tables will be tested daily  - our focus for this term is knowing our two times tables (including division) really securely.

If you have any questions, please ask! 


Accelerated Reader


At the beginning of term pupils will complete a Star test, where they have to read various questions and choose the correct answer. This allows us to to see where the children are with their reading and comprehension skills.

The assessment will give us an update of the zone of proximal development of each pupil's reading skills . For example; 1.6 - 2.6. You child will bring home a book within their achieved zone. Once your child has read their book and feels ready to answer questions about it's content, they will be able to take a quiz in school which will then assess their reading and understanding of what they have read.

If you have any queries about this then please don't hesitate to contact us.
