Everyday x15 minutes.

Children each have a reading book from our school reading scheme, matched exactly to their reading level. They should read their book for 10 minutes with an adult, at home for 4 days per week. To aid understanding and progression, they should also discuss what they have read with an adult for 5 minutes, using the questions in the front of their reading records. Every day when children read, they should have their books signed by an adult. Messages regarding how they have done, anything they struggled with etc. can go in here.

Once per week, instead of reading their school reading book, children will be asked to read a ‘shared text’. This is a text that the whole class will read and will be discussed and worked on in a lesson with the class teacher the following day. Children will be able to access a video of their teacher reading the text aloud, on Class Dojo each week. They can either choose to read independently or follow the text and use the video to help support them if they need it, or find the text particularly challenging.
5-10 minutes daily


Children’s spellings will be set for them on Spelling Shed. With built-in scaffolding and support, the games on Spelling Shed allow children to practise their spellings at a level that they are comfortable with.
5-10 minutes daily

Maths Fluency

In order for children in Key Stage 2 to achieve the national curriculum objective of being able to recall multiplication facts up to 12×12, children should practise using Times Table Rockstars (TT Rockstars).
