This is the link you need to access Readiwriter:


Pupils should find spelling games and activities to complete in a similar way that Mathletics covers mathematics.  Pupils should be able to gain access using their usual Mathletics log in details.  Alternatively, once pupils have logged onto Mathletics, a button in the top left corner of the screen allows you to toggle between the ‘M’ of Mathletics and the ‘R’ of Readiwriter.

Let us know what you think!

***Oxford Owl***

The Oxford Owl reading platform is free for parents to register with and then offers plenty of free ebooks for children.

We have tried to link some of the ebooks to our Accelerated Reader Programme so that children can still complete quizzes about the books they are reading.

RM Unify

RM Unify is our learning platform.  We are beginning to offer some tasks to some students as part of our provision.  Clicking the link takes you to a log in page.  We have used a generic log in recently, which still works, but children should be able to log in to their own space.  Teachers will email out separately to explain this process, once there are tasks to complete.

Any problems, please email us:




We realise that reading the same book over and over again is not the most interesting!  We are offering book swap sessions each week to give children the chance to swap their books a little more regularly.  Simply come to school on Tuesday or Thursday afternoon, between 1:30pm and 2:00pm.

Come through the main entrance in New Street, and walk to the back of the hall.  Mr Bradley will be there to point you in the right direction.

+++Please remember social distancing rules, hand sanitiser and especially face coverings!+++


Here are the housepoint totals:

Well done to everyone who has earned housepoints this half term…who will be top of the heap this half term?

Every point counts!
