Mr Thorne does phonics

We have recently started using Read Write Inc to teach phonics. By clicking on the link below you'll find a series of  videos explaining the basics of Read Write Inc. These videos will help you to support your child to continue their phonics learning at home.


We also recommend you download the 'Talk Share Learn Leeds' App which will give you some practical tips for ways to develop your child's speaking and listening.


Homework, reading and spelling:

We send homework home every Friday. Please complete and return for the following Friday.

We aim to change books on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday but we do listen to readers daily, so please bring book bags everyday.

It is important that you listen to your child read. We like to encourage children to read both at school and at home. Children receive a certificate when they have reached a milestone for the amount of times they have read. The first is certificate is for 25 times! 

New spelling are given out at the beginning of the week and children are tested the following Monday. Please practise these at home with your child.

PE days 

We have PE on a Tuesday (Hazel), Thursday (Sycamore) and Friday (both) . As the weather is getting warmer please bring jshorts and pumps.
