Useful Day to Day Information

Homework - this is issued on Mondays and due in on the following Monday, this usually consists of spellings and numeracy.


TTRS - this is an ICT resource which you can access from home to consolidate learning in school.


Reading - we frequently hear the children read, however, we see the best progress when this is supported by children reading and sharing books at home.
