Your children should be accessing spellings through the Spelling Shed and times-tables using TTRockstars every night as well as reading.

We have introduced Atom learning (maths only at the moment) and your children received their login at the end of the summer term. Please see your class teacher if you are having difficulties. 

Homework days :

  • TTRockstars - daily
  • Reading - daily (25mins)
  • Atom - (weekly) tasks set Fri and end the following Thursday night.
  • Spelling Shed - set fortnightly but to be completed daily.
