Reading Spine

We want our school to be a place where children are read to, enjoy, discuss and work with high quality books. These ‘essential reads’ would be a store of classics, creating a living library inside a child’s mind. This is the ‘Reading Spine’. We have provided the Pie Corbett reading spine in our classrooms so that children have access to these high quality texts. Click on the links below to find out what books are in your child's reading spine.

All children have a Mathletics account and teachers assign courses to pupils in their Mathletics accounts linked to their work in class. Please ensure that your child regularly log in to Mathletics where they can practise and apply their maths learning, as well as partipating and competing with other children around the world on the live Mathletics activities.

All pupils have a Times Table Rockstar account. Times Table Rockstars is an online learning resource for learning times table facts off by heart and with rapid recall (recall within 5 seconds).

It also supports children's conceptual understanding of addition and subtraction. We suggest that all children in EYFS and KS1 use Numbots regularly at home. The key is to practise little and often. We suggest 3 minutes a day.
