We are really trying to improve our times tables skills in school and are currently doing work on them every day. The children should know their multiplication and division facts up 12x12 at the end of year 4. For further practise at home, please click here http://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/5-7-years/multiplication-and-division and for fun maths games!




Please continue to read as much as possible at home - we recommend at least 3 times a week! This really supports a child for the future and not only helps them to read but improves their writing too! We are really focusing on understanding a text for e.g. What the story is about, why it ended a certain way, what other ways it could have ended. These elements are just as important as being able to read the words. Please see Mrs Cotton-Winfield or Mrs Ince for further advice or questions.  



We will be sending new spellings home every Monday to be tested the following Monday.  See the 'Look, Cover, Write, Check' sheets in diaries to help learn our spellings.

Please also see the Year 3 and Year 4 spelling list  T2-E-1175-New-Curriculum-Spelling-List-Years-3-And-4-Word-Mat.pdf

Our weekly 'Spelling Test' is on Mondays.
