Homework

Homework is set for children every week and includes reading, Mymaths and spellings. We also provide access to resources for further maths skills and a digital reading platform. Once every half term, children will also receive a topic project to complete.

Homework is available on children's Teams account which can be accessed on a browser or by downloading one of the apps below for Android or Apple devices.

For a guide to using Teams, please click HERE

If you are having any problems accessing Teams, please speak to a class teacher.

Reading

Please make sure you read with your child at least three times a week. This regular practise helps develop fluency and expression. Please make a comment in their blue diaries to say you have read your book.

MyMaths

 You can access MyMaths by clicking here:

MYMATHS LOGIN

You will need the school login which is grendon and the password is sixteen970. You then have an individual login, this will have been given to you by your class teacher. If you don't have it, please speak to the teacher or email them on the address above.

Times Tables Rockstars

We are pleased to announce we have signed up with Times Table Rock Stars! This online game is free to access and will help improve your maths skills.

To log in you will need your Username and Password:

Your username is the first three letters of your first name, and the first three letters of your surname. So Harry Potter's would be harpot. You can get your password from your class teacher.

You can access this game on laptops or download the app to your mobile device.

Information

Book Bags

Please bring these to school every day. Children should have their Reading Diary and any books, Ditty Sheets or Tricky Words in them. Please make sure you are writing in their Reading Diary too!

Uniform

Our uniform information can be found HERE. Please ensure all articles of clothing have names in. We do our best to help children keep track of their items, but we need your help with this.

PE Kit

PE Kits stay in school, and we send them home once every half-term to be washed. For information about our kit, see the UNIFORM information.

Water Bottles and Snacks

Please provide a reusable water bottle with your child's name on it. This should only be for water. Children can also bring in a healthy snack and drink for breaktime if they wish.
