Accelerated Reader


Reading -

Children are encouraged to read every night with an adult, talk about the book they are reading and record it in their reading record books. If a book is completed an accelerated reader quiz can be completed on the link above. We have wonderful rewards for those achieving 50, 100, 150, 200, 250 and even 300 reads, make sure you're in it to win it! This is only for certain children. All children should continue to read and swap books daily. 



Your child's Mathletics logins have been stuck in the front of their red pre-learning book. They are assigned three activities to complete each week. The pupils have until Monday to complete these tasks.



We ask that you listen to your child read for at least 10 minutes every day.



Pre-Learning tasks for Term 5 


Please feel free to complete these activities over the course of Term 5. Please highlight once you have completed them. Feel free to add any pictures or comments. We would love to see what you have been getting up to.


Spot and talk about different types of vehicles while you are out and about with your family.

Create a city song to the tune of The Wheels on the Bus. Your song should start with, ‘I went to the city, and I saw…’

Draw a map of a city and direct a toy car or figure using words such as forwards, backwards, straight ahead, left, right, up, down, under and over. You can use numbers too if you like.

Create and label a picture or map of a fantasy city. What type of buildings would be in your city and what would they look like? What transport would people use in this city?

 Search the web with an adult to find images of different cities in the world. Create a scrapbook of your favourite cities and include pictures, labels and captions. Can you find and record a short fact about each city?

Make a cityscape artwork and take it to school to share with the class.

Dear parents/ carers,
