Currently, Reading Books are sent home on a Tuesday and are due back in school on a Thursday. Parents are asked to complete the reading record and should question their child about what they have read. Children are asked to read daily and read books they have from home. They are also encouraged to listen to audio books
It is important that children practice each day, not just to be ready for their test; but to help their progress in Maths. It is strongly recommend that children practice daily by using Times Tables Rock Stars All children have been given a username and password.
