Any additional work that a child does in school or at home will help their progress. Learning at school is fun and so learning at home should be too!
Here are a few ideas on what to do at home with your child
Mathletics – each child from Year 1 -6 has a Mathletics account that the school has paid for. We love Maths and know your child just won’t be able to get enough of it!
Spellodrome – each child from Year 1 -6 has a Spellodrome account that the school has paid for. This is an interactive game that improves spelling in a fun way. Enjoy!
