Reading: In school we regularly talk to your child about their reading and monitor their engagement using our AR system which helps us to ensure that your children are reading regularly at home as well as at school. Please help your child by encouraging them to read quality books and by making time to discuss any unfamiliar words they come across with you. 

Mathletics: Studies have consistently  proved that children who engage regularly with Mathletics do significantly better in their assessments so please take advantage of this wonderful tool. If you encourage your child to complete more tasks and they gain a certificate these will be awarded in our Key Stage Assembly on Thursdays.

Please note that where pupils have received a low score the task may be reset so that learning may be consolidated. If you have found a task difficult please ask in school for assistance.


Times Tables challenge: Times tables will continue after the Easter Break

Each week will be taking part in a new times table challenge. Each pupil will be given 144 questions based on all times tables up to 12 X 12 to complete in 10 minutes. We will record their score and time each week. This is to ensure that all pupils are fluent in their tables so that they can apply these in their Maths work throughout the week.

I know some of my times tables but I have gaps in my knowledge.

I can answer all the times tables questions, but I am having to work some out which slows me down.

I can recall all times table facts quickly and acurately. I know them all by heart.

Please ask me if you have any questions relating to homelearning or if you need any resources.
