Maths!

We are focusing on our times tables for a few weeks in January. Year 3's will focus on the 3, 4, 8 times tables and year 4 will recap these and then focus on the 6, 7, 9 times tables. Individual tables will also still be given out for their charts. Please practise, practise, practise! A times table grid will be sent home each with with homework books. 

Aim to play on TTRockstars 3 time a week to really boost your rapid recall - aim to answer within 6 seconds.

Homework

Each week children are expected to:

  • Read three times minimum
  • Practise and learn their spelling list (every 2 weeks)
  • Practise their times tables
  • Complete homework given in homework books (about half an hour) this is handed out on a Friday to be returned the following Wednesday.

 

Spellings are taken from the curriculum and consist of spelling patterns, prefixes and suffixes and words from an expected government list for their age.

 

 

 

Times Tables
