We encourage our children to read daily or as frequently as possible when at home. Please leave a comment each week in their reading logs.
Here are some fantastic links to further support your child with their reading development at home.
At Grove Street we follow a handwriting scheme called Letter join. The year 1 children are currently learning the curly catipillar letters. Please see the link at the bottom of the page for fun activities you can do to support your child with handwriting practise at home.
In maths we use the Power Maths programme. We are also extremely lucky to now be using an exciting game called 'Numbots' to support your child's maths education. The focus of the game is on improving addition and subtraction skills.
Your children should have already received their own personal login and password so they can access the game at home. If you have any problems with this please get in touch with the class teacher via class dojo.
