Learning support

Pupils can access most resources used in class through Showbie or their school email account. Pupils are encouraged to take their school iPad home with them to access these services via apps, but they are also available through any web browser.

Spellings are usually set each Friday and tested the following Friday. We have Mild, Spicy and Hot spellings and one Intense word challenge, relating to Y4, 5 and 6 objectives. Learn as far as you can. In class, we focus on Y6 objectives.

Maths and reading homework will be set on Friday and should be handed in by Wednesday. Useful websites and resources are shared with the pupils via email or Showbie.

English will be set on a unit-by-unit and will often be cross-curricular, taking in other aspects of our learning.
