The Ministry of Unladylike Activity by Robin Stevens

Spelling - we will hand out spelling homework each Friday for a test the following Friday – please help your children practise their spellings at home. Work will also be set each week on Spelling Shed to complete.

Maths – each week your child will be set some work to consolidate what they have been learning that week on Sumdog – this will help embed their learning. They will also be given a worksheet as homework when necessary. Please ensure your child completes their homework to assist them in their learning.

 Reading – regular reading at home is a key component to learning. Children will be sent home with home reader books which we expect to be returned regularly. Please ensure that you read them with your child and sign their record and comment on how they did!


If your child cannot remember their login details for Sumdog or Spelling Shed, please speak to myself or Mrs Wingfield.
