October 2023

Many thanks for attending our sessions in September. Herewith the slides from the meeting

The school follows the Read Write Inc Phonics programme to introduce pupils to the phonemes and graphemes used in reading.

The school has bought 'Rocker Box' as a reading homework. Children from Year 2 have a username and password to undertake a regular comprehension exercise. Teacher will monitor usage and scores, following up areas for improvement in guided reading sessions.

Access is via this portal:

Rockerbox Student Portal (

From January - Year 5 and 6 pupils will be expected to undertake a weekly exercise. Failure to do so will mean loss of playtime.
