Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG)
This is the website that we discussed with parents at our recent SPaG evening. It has really useful ideas about how to encourage and engage your children with SPaG as well as a "jargon buster" so you can check your own understanding too!
You can also find information about the phonics phases that are taught in Reception and KS1 here:

During ICT in classes we use a number of websites and programmes we have dowloaded. Many children have expressed an interest in accessing these websites and programmes so we have included a quick link for your convenience. All the downloadable programmes have proved to be valuable learning tools and have to date run trouble free on our school computers. All the children are advised during their ICT lessons that permission should be granted by a parent or guardian when downloading anything to a computer at home.
www.freepastpapers.co.uk This website hosts all of the past SAT papers that have ever been published, including level 6 material

Learning multiplication is an essential part of children’s education. Students who have mastered multiplication gain a solid foundation in mathematics that will help them throughout their school life and beyond.
Just like learning to walk before you can run, learning multiplication and the times tables are building blocks for other math topics taught in school.
There are many resources available to help with this process, workbooks, CD Roms and websites. Finding ones that your child enjoys is often the key to success (along with practice). Here are just a few websites that we have found to be useful. If you know of any other sites we would love to hear about them.
The final link is to an excel spreadsheet we use in school for times tables work. Just download the file. Each tab has a set of times table questions, ordered, reverse orderer and muddled up. If the question is answered correctly a smiley face appears, if it's incorrect - a sad face! Simply print or save for a record of achievement
