Numbots is an excellent way for your child to practice their mental maths. It helps with understanding, recall and fluency in mental addition and subtraction so that they can move from counting to calculating. User names and passwords have been put into their reading diaries.

Here is a link to the spelling videos of the Y1 common exception words. The idea is that the children hear the word read out to them, the children write it down and then they are shown the the correct spelling so they can check it. They can pause the video after each word.Y1 Spelling- https://vimeo.com/497941667
