Please encourage your child to read for at least 15 minutes at least five times per week. Please record what you have read in your reading record.


Like reading, Spelling is very important for your writing. Spellodrome will have targeted spelling lists each week linking to the spelling focus in class. Challenge yourself and see how many points you can earn!
