Marvellous ME 

Welcome to all of our parents who have downloaded the Marvellous Me app to share in your child's learning. The children have been very excited and the teachers have enjoyed awarding badges for their great learning, behaviour and successes! Keep those Hi5's coming as the children (and staff) love to recieve them!

Reading at home

Children are expected to read at least 3 times every week. Children who read 3 times a week or more receive rewards after every fifth week to acknowledge their completion of home reading.  In order for us to know that your child has read at home, please sign your child's reading diary every time they read and add a short comment if you wish. Children who do not read at least three times a week are given the opportunity to read during playtime on a Friday.

The children’s books are changed twice a week – once on a Tuesday and once on a Thursday.

Spelling lists are sent home every Monday. The children are tested on these spellings the following Monday. Please make sure your child practises their spellings at home. Children who achieve full marks on their spelling tests are awarded a spelling certificate. For every fourth time they get all their spellings correct, they get a prize.   super speller


Homework is set and sent home during the first week of every new half term. The homework is linked to what the children will be learning about in class during that half term. Children are expected to complete at least one piece of homework and hand it in during the last week of the half term.
