Busters book club is going from strength to strength and the majority of children are now participating (even enjoying) reading. Well done to Birch for winning the Busters Book Club readers of the week.

Reading plus is dramatically increasing in popularity among the children and is definitely having a positive impact on their overall learning. Some children are actually asking if they can spend time at lunch continuing with their learning.

Congratulations to Max Lindsey this week for Star of the Week!

Times Tables Rock Stars are noticeably helping the children with their times tables in school, but a further push would undoubtedly help even more! If we could all make a concerted effort with this, it would be much appreciated.

We began Reading Plus this week. Reading Plus is an interactive programme which enables children to strengthen reading skills by answering comprehension questions to a selected text of their choosing. This will prove a welcome supplement to the reading already being done and is proving effective from the start. Children can login at home via the link below.
