Term 5


We always encourage all children to read at home and we know many of you have many lovely books to read. In order for your child to continue being able to read book banded reading books selected at their level of reading ability, your child now has an account with Bug Club https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0 where they have been allocated reading books based on their book band or reading age. They have books to read in ‘My Stuff’ and then after completing all of the activities based on the books, they will go into ‘My Library’ to read. Please use our pupil guide below to help you navigate Bug Club. You should have received their username and password through an announcement on Class Charts (the school code is popr). If you have not received this, or have trouble accessing the site, please email your child's year group address.

We recommend reading 1 or 2 books a week rather than racing ahead - quality reading rather than quantity will help you improve your reading more. The first reading should focus on decoding, the second reading will focus on comprehension and completing the activities and try some reading with prosody (intonation, pitch and expression) for a few pages too when you read aloud.

Home learning packs are also available from the Hamilton Trust https://www.hamilton-trust.org.uk/blog/learning-home-packs/

Each pack contains 5 days of mixed reading, grammar, spelling and writing opportunities, planned around a weekly theme. Some days contain a lot of activities so please don't feel pressured to complete everything. Notes for parents and carers are included, as well as sheets which can be printed for children to work on. However, this is not essential and written responses could be recorded on paper, in a notebook, or typed.

Bug Club User Guide


Daily Maths lessons are provided through White Rose Maths https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/ which is a high-quality resource we use in school. For Years 1-6, each lesson video starts with a 'Flashback' to review prior learning, then a short tutorial video with example questions which are fully explained. A follow-up worksheet is provided for each lesson for children to complete, although again, if you don't have access to a printer, these can be completed on paper. Answers are provided so you can talk through your child's work and help them if they get stuck. For Early Years, each week is based around a story book but you don't need to have the book to do the activity.

Please also remind your child to practice their times tables recall frequently using Times Tables Rock Stars. Well done messages and house points are sent to the top 3 children in each Key Stage every Friday and many teachers set their own challenges and rewards for effort. If your child doesn't have their log-in details, please email their year group address for help.
