Learning at Home


Please ensure that you read and discuss your child’s reading book with them as much as possible, using the reading fans, to reinforce and practice the guided reading activities that take place in school.

Lastly, if you have any queries relating to your child or any of the information above, throughout the term, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you, as always, for your continued support.


The spelling lists will be sent out each half term and stuck into the homework books.  The children will be tested each Monday on them.

Homework will be sent once a week on Tuesdays.  It will be due in on the following Monday.

Times Tables

Times tables continue to be a very difficult area for children of this age. We chant the tables, sing songs and do activities relating to times tables regularly in class. By the end of Year 3, children need to know 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10 times tables. By the end of Year 4 this extends to include all of the tables. If they do not know all of their times tables by this time, they will not be at age-related expectations.

The children should practise their tables at home regularly and I will send times table/number bond/quick addition and subtraction sheets home regularly to further support.
