Read All About It!

Please continue to support your child's reading development at home. Children are required to read at least 3 times per week.

We encourage children to read for pleasure as they have the opportunity to take books home from our new class libraries, as well as reading their own books from home.

Times Tables Rockstars

Children have the opportunity to play on the online game Times Tables Rockstars. Children use their Bug Club log ins to access the website (which is also available as an App), and here they can play games to learn their multiplication tables and compete against their friends.
