Daily reading – All children should read a quality text of an appropriate level that they bring into school each day and take home each night, completing their reading record daily. Children will read books from a structured reading scheme until we decide they are ready to become a ‘free reader’. We ask that everyone reads for a minimum of twenty minutes daily. Reading records will be checked daily and if not completed, additional support will be provided at a lunchtime reading club.

Weekly spellings – These will be set on Monday and tested each Friday. Spellings for the whole term will be sent home and are available below. Please support your child in learning their five weekly spellings.
Please find the lists below.
Times tables – These should be practised regularly at home; knowing these is crucial and the expectation of the national curriculum is that all children should know their times tables up to 12 x 12 by the end of Year 4. This means being able to recite times tables i.e. 0 times 5 is 0,1 times 5 is 5, 2 times 5 is 10 etc. and knowing related division facts i.e. 0 divided by 5 is 0, 5 divided by 5 is 1, 10 divided by 5 is 2 etc.
Maths – Each week, children will be set a page of questions to compete for homework which will be linked to our in school learning. This will be set on a Tuesday and due for Friday. We will go through the questions as a class on a Friday so booklets need to be in school.
