When your child logs onto IXL you will notice the huge range of skills they can work on. If your child is enjoying using this programme and wants to practise skills that are not set homework, this would be beneficial to them.

 

Reading Tasks and Comprehension 

The children will be expected to read with/to an adult and to complete a weekly reading comprehension task. As always, please write a comment in your child’s reading record once they have read or alternatively, as the children have reached KS2, they can write their own comment on what they thought about what they have read. Reading records will be checked every Thursday.
