 Children should read their 'Read at Home' phonic book at home at least 5 times a week. Children will be given links to online phonic videos which match the sounds in their 'Read at Home' book. Please watch these every time you read together.

Children have access to either Numbots or Times Tables Rock Stars and should practice these little and often.
Several times a week that adds up to 30minutes overall is best.

The Guided Reading group will get spellings each Friday and be tested on these the next Friday.
