Times tables should be practised as often as possible using either your times tables cards or better still, by logging onto Times Tables Rockstars. Every child has the chance to log in at school but the more you do at home, the higher your score and the bigger star you will be! All scores (and coins) have been reset for the beginning of the school year – so be a star this year!
All children are expected to read regularly at home, and record this in their reading records. Reading records are collected daily and those children that have not read at home will be asked to read at lunchtime to a ‘reading buddy’. There are so many wonderful books for 7-11 year olds to read, please don’t get stuck on Horrible Histories! See instead this list of recommended fiction.
