Task Two – Reading


All children have now been allocated a login for Bug Club. Bug Club gives your child access to at home reading books at their specific reading level. Children can access the reading books online and progress through the reading levels with your support at home. More information can be found in the letter below. If you have any questions about Bug Club or need your child’s login information, please email me at j.brislen@northcote.liverpool.sch.uk 

Your child can login to to Bug Club here: http://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk

Bug Club Parent Letter
If you are having trouble accessing Bug Club via your device, please try the following steps:
  1. Go to ‘Settings’ and select ‘Safari’
  2. Switch off ‘Prevent Cross-site tracking’

If you are still having problems, please contact me and we will investigate further.
Thank you for your ongoing patience and support. 

Some children are currently accessing Reading Plus in school. If so, they will be able to log in at home. Children can access stories online, which helps develop their fluency, understanding and vocabulary. Children’s progress can be monitored by myself, therefore, it’s a great way for me to see how your child is progressing.

Important Information

My name is Miss Brislen and I am going to be your year 6 teacher this year. We have made a fantastic start to year 6 so far and I am really looking forward to the rest of the year.


  • We have P.E on Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child’s full P.E. kit is in school for those days. PE kits will be sent home at the end of each half term.


  • In order to keep everyone safe, please stand behind the marked area at drop off and pick up times.  This will ensure all children and staff have space to enter and exit their marked area safely. Remember to wear a face covering if you are able to.


  • All children will require a water bottle. Please ensure this contains water only. Children will be able to refill their bottles in class.


  • If you wish for you child to walk to school and home from school alone, please email with permission to j.brislen@northcote.liverpool.sch.uk
