All of our pupils have Sumdog accounts for spelling and maths. If you are unsure of your child's log-in details, please email the school using the contact details on this page.

After your child has logged in, Sumdog is very straightforward to use.  As children play, Sumdog asks questions that are tailored to their individual learning. You can use the Sumdog website on your computer, or download the iPad or Android app. If you have any problems or questions, please contact Sumdog directly here.

Non-screen activities

Reading at home

Helping your child become a reader is the single most important thing that you can do. Sharing books and doing creative activities inspired by the books you read is a great way to spend time together.

Here are some things you could try in KS1:

  • practice learning tricky words - find 'tricky word lists' and useful guidance by clicking here
  • stick tricky words on the wall, door etc.
  • use magnetic letters - make words and read them 
  • "...look at the first sound/sounds"
  • "... look at the ending of the word"
  • "... does it make sense?"
  • "... do you remember that word?"
  • "... this word rhymes with …"
  • "... does that sound right?"
  • "... have a try!"
  • "... what do you think might be happening?"
  • "... what might happen next?"
  • " ...look at the picture!"
  • "... why did s/he do that?"
  • "... how do you think s/he is feeling?"

Here are some things you could try in KS2:

  • draw and label a character or a setting from a description in the book
  • think of 5 questions you would like to ask one of the characters and write their answers as if you were that character
  • talk/write about a memory or experience of your own that is similar to something you have read in your book
  • make a list of the questions you ask yourself as you read
  • which character in your book would you most like to be? Explain your answer
  • say/write a telephone answering 'voicemail' message for a character in your book
  • design a cover for a book you have read
  • draw a cartoon strip of the main events from the book
  • write a diary entry for one of the characters in your book
  • write a letter to a problem page as if you were one of the characters in your book. Then write a response.
  • dear author - write a letter to the author of your book
  • talk/write a telephone conversation between two characters from the book
  • make up a multiple choice quiz - all of the correct answers must be in the book
  • find five new words that you do not know the meaning of. Find out the definition of the words​
