Spellings are handed out on Wednesdays and tested on the following Wednesday.

Times Tables are given out on Friday and tested on the following Thursday.

Reading

We encourage all parents to read with their children for a few minutes every day.  Reading together can be a very rewarding activity as well as hugely beneficial to your childs development across all areas of the curriculum.

In Year 6 and throughout KS2 all children read using the Acclereated Reader (AR) scheme.  AR is a powerful computer programme for monitoring and managing independent reading practice. 

Following a ‘STAR Reading’ test, your child is given a ZPD range, e.g. 3.4 – 5.1.  This can be found in their planner.  They are then able to choose books from within this range.

Once your child has read a book, they take a fun motivational quiz on the computer to test their comprehension of the book they have read, aiming for benchmarks and targets set by their teacher.

You can view your child's progress from home using Renaissance Home Connect™.  You can login using the password in your child's planner.

Children have opportunities to read with an adult regularly.  The type of reading varies depending upon age and ability. Your child may take part in group reading, guided reading and independent reading, as appropriate.  We use a variety of text types, varying in length, genre and complexity, to provide them with sufficient challenge.  We try to instill in the children an intrinsic love of reading that will last them a lifetime.
