Week beginning 01st March

Weekly Timetable

You will need to practise your spellings throughout the week. Use the different techniques that we use in school such as: Look, cover, write, check; finding the definitions of each work; writing sentences that use the words accurately.


In the week, on a Tuesday afternoon there is time to practise your spellings but remember little and often works well. On Friday, get somebody at home to test you on the spellings and see how successful you are. Good luck!

Reading Plus and TT rockstars


You must use Reading Plus at least 3 times a week for 30 minutes - we will be checking this each week to ensure that you are using it. In addition, you also need to rehearse your tables 3 times a week on TT rockstars for 15 minutes at a time. Again, this will be monitored in school.

Mindfulness Minutes

Over the next four weeks, as a school, we are going to be completing the 'Mindfulness Minutes Campaign'. If you go to the video resource centre and Mrs Mercer has left a video explaining the challenge. 


At the end of the week, send an email to your year group email letting your teachers know how many mindfulness minutes you have completed over the week. 


We look forward to seeing which classes complete the most minutes - Good Luck!
