This week we will focus on money. You can choose games from either folders. The green chilli games are a little easier to start with.

5. Reading

Aim to use this programme daily with your child. You should have all received your Reading Eggs password and username by email last Friday. We would like everybody to log in and take the placement test as soon as possible. Parents - it's very important that the children are supervised during the test but resist the temptation to help them as the programme needs to place them at the most appropriate level. Click on the Reading Eggs logo to access the website. We will continue to use this programme in school when the children return. Staff will log in regularly to monitor the children's progress.
