Welcome to our class page! Miss Jones, Mr Lomax and I are really excited to teach our class of 23 wonderful children!

Home Reading

We are now using Bug Club Phonics or Accelerated Reader to support our teaching of phonics and reading in school. At home, the children are able to access these books and activities to further support their learning on the Bug Club website.   Each week children will be allocated e-books to access and read at home. These will be your child's main reading books and should be read during the week.  Each book has questions or activities to do with a yellow bug icon.  The book will not be classed as completed until these tasks are done.  Children on the coloured book bands will also be able to choose and take home books each TuesdayIf your child is on Accelerated Reader, they can access the quizzes from home via the pupil zone tab on the school website and can change their books as often as needed. 

Bug Club Reading



Tasks: Every Friday your child will be set homework in their homework books, this will be spellings in the autumn term and children are to use their homework books to show they have been practising.

Spellings: We will share eight words linked to a spelling rule we have been practising in class for your child to learn each week. There will also be an additional 2 common exception words, which will not be linked to the spelling rule practised. There will be a spelling test the following Friday for children to show what they have learnt.  

Reading: If your child is on the coloured book bands, we will only be changing books once a week (Tuesday) when the children will be given physical books & eBooks set on Bug Club. Please access reading in other ways such as through local libraries, books you have at home and which enables you to access a range of books online for free. However, you will need to sign up for a free account first. Please support your child at home by listening to them read daily. 

If your child is on accelerated reader, they can change their books as often as necessary.

Water: Please ensure that your child has a bottle of water every day, labelled with their name, to keep them hydrated throughout the day and to drink with their lunch. We are no longer able to provide the children with cups from school.

Snack: They can bring in a healthy afternoon snack, which must be kept in their coat pocket, book bag or tray.  

P.E kits: We will be doing PE outside as much as possible so please ensure that your child has the appropriate kit for this. Their kit can remain in school for the half term.

Forest School: Children will need to come to school in their own clothes. They will need to bring their own wellies and all in one suit or waterproof coat in a plastic bag, preferably not their school coat as it will get muddy.
