Key information for Parents


Reading books are to be taken home every night and brought back into school every day.  Please complete you Accelerated Reader quizzes online at home if you can by following this link:

Your username and password are the same as your Mathletics.  If you can't access this at home, please let me know.

We will try to change books as regularly as possible in school, but please be patient as we are not allowing children access to the library at the moment. If you forget your book or are reading other books alongside your school reading book, you can search for it in accelerated reader to find if there is a comprehension test for it.

Further to this, I have added a new Online Reading tab where you can access reading materials from home. Many of these books can be found on the accelerated reader tests to assess your understanding of the content.



As promised, here is the video to follow to draw a germ just click on one of the pictures to view. There is a virus germ and a good germ:
