There will be interventions on a daily basis. These will be available to support each child in their learning within small groups alongside the class teacher. When your child is invited to attend an intervention it is important that they attend. For your child to get the most out of their interventions, please ensure they arrive promptly at school for 8:30.





Spellings will be given on a Monday in your child's learning journal and should be practiced at home every night for 10 minutes ready for their spelling test every Friday. These spellings should be practiced by writing them into sentences, so the children understand the meaning of each word. You will find your child’s score in their learning journals.



Your child should be reading daily and having their learning journal signed at home when they have read to you. Your child will receive 2 house points per day they have their journal signed plus an extra 5 if they had their journal signed every night! Once the book has been finished, the children will have the opportunity to complete a quiz based on the book and then change it for another of their choice related to their given reading range.


Optional learning:

Dip and Dos

You will find additional activities on the school jotter page.

Jotter learning platform:

At St Michael’s we subscribe to Jotter; the learning platform designed with primary schools in mind. Children are growing up in a fast-changing online world and we strive to ensure that they gain the essential skills both within and beyond school. Teachers will keep you up-to-date with your child’s learning. Your child will be able to download and upload work and complete tasks. There will be pages where much of what you see has been created by the children themselves. This is their chance to shine as they write content and collaborate on research.


Jotter gives children the opportunity to explore concepts such as wikis and blogs in a safe environment. We hope you enjoy using Jotter as much as we do. To log in please type in your child’s username and password. To obtain this information please speak to your class teacher.


If you would like to contact your class teacher:

Please write a comment in your child's learning journal- these are checked daily and any non-urgent messages will be replied to.


If your message is urgent then please do contact the school office to arrange a return phone call or an appointment.

Support Your Child at Home!

Please see the videos below that outline how you can support your child at home with their reading and maths learning. The reading videos explain how we use the VIPERS acronym to teach the different reading skills which are: vocabulary, inference, prediction, explanation, retrieval and sequencing.

The maths videos outline topics such as addition and subtraction, number facts and number bonds, and part part whole models.
