Reading rewards! Keep calm-earn a sticker 

 

In order to help your child’s reading we are asking for your  support in reading at home. To encourage the children to participate we are rewarding them with stickers. To gain each new sticker they need to read 10 times . The children can add their stickers to the boat on the back of their reading record.

Spellodrome

As you will know, learning to spell can be really tricky, particularly because the English language has so many different rules and exceptions. As a school, we have adopted a practical approach to teaching spellings. Children learn through fun games, such as the dictionary challenge.

Your child is using Spellodrome as part of their English program at school. Spellodrome is an English resource that provides detailed instruction in spelling and support for vocabulary development. Your child has take-home access to Spellodrome – they simply sign in with their school username and password (inside their reading record book) using any compatible computer or mobile device. The extra Spellodrome practice at home can make all the difference to your child’s progress. Encourage them to achieve a weekly target of 1000 points to earn certificates and awards. Their certificates will be printed out and given to them in assembly.
