Useful Websites

Accelerated reading tests
You child should be reading at home on a daily basis. This will allow them to complete an accelerated reading test on a book at the appropriate level when in school or at home. Logins can be found at the front of the reading record.


The children are set weekly maths homework on MyMaths and there are also games for the children to play.

Times Tables Rock Stars
This should be used daily no matter how well you know your times tables. This is a fun and educational website to practise your times tables and division facts.
This website can only be used when your class teacher sets you an activity. This will be used as part of your homework tasks.

If you need to borrow a laptop then please speak to the class teacher.
