Miss Ward's class will be taking part in Forest school sessions on a Monday morning in Spring 2, Summer 1 and Summer 2.  


Home Learning: All homework will  be set on Class Dojo Stories. This will be: phonics / spelling, tricky word flash cards, rapid recall and daily reading. Research has shown that this is the most beneficial kind of homework.

  • Reading: Every child is expected to read each night. Please try to hear your child read and make a comment on the child's Dojo profile. Make sure that they bring their reading book into school every week so that the staff can change books for the new ones. They can also access their reading books via the 'ebooks' on the Big Cat link below.

Rapid Recall: Children will be given an online activity to reinforce their learning of Mathematical key knowledge. An example of the question types in the quiz will also be given. Children should practice a little a few times a week and they will be tested in school to see how well they are doing, weekly
