Psssttt..... Some of you have been asking what our secret to getting the children to tidy up is... It doesn't always work, but it might help!

Just a reminder to parents about the logins sent home before lock down. It is for a programme called 'Teach Your Monster to Read' and supports children's phonic learning. It is a fun way of teaching Phonics (and also makes your lives a little easier with home-schooling) in a systematic way, just like we would in school! I know some children have been using it at home, and it is an easy way to get children learning without the arguments and tantrums.
