This has been funded by school and is a fun way for the children to practise their tables in preparation for the tables assessment done in year 4. The login is the same for both sites.

Your child has also received login details for Purple Mash. This is a website with numerous resources to support the teaching of Maths, English, computing, science etc. There are a series of 2Does for your child to practise specific or key skills. 


Some children have also received login details for Lexia. This is an intervention program designed to support children who need some extra support with some or all of the following; phonics, spelling, reading and or writing. Please do as often as possible at home in order for your child to reach their target (time allocation) for each week. 


Please ensure your child reads their individual reading book on a regular basis. As a school we operate the RAG rating system (Red= rarely reads at home, Amber+ reads sometimes at home, Green+ reads frequently at home) to monitor your child's progress. Reading is vital to all apsects of the curriculum and must be suplemented at home.
