Most children in year 2 - 6 are part of the accelerated reader scheme. This a scheme where the children are assessed and given an appropriately levelled book. They read the book at home or school and then they complete and online quiz at school. This ensures that the child is not only decoding but also understanding what they have read.
Follow this link for further information.
You can also level books from home or the library here.
For the methods that we teach at Elmbridge and videos on how these are done - click here. This page also has a range of websites that will help your child and provide opportunities for practise.
Children in year 2 and 3 have logins for Doodlemaths. This should be completed as often as possible to gain the greatest benefit.
If you require urgent support , please contact your GP or their out of hours service. For emergency medical attention, you should go to your nearest A and E department or A and E at Gloucester Royal Hospital.
