Learning at home

Homework each week will consist of a Mathletics certificate, weekly spellings (tested on Friday) and frequent reading (at least 4 times a week). Reading journals will be checked on a weekly basis. 

Children are also strongly encouraged to learn their times tables at home. In the Summer term, all Year 4 children will take part in the Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) which consists of 25 random selection of times table questions from the 1 - 12 times tables with 6 seconds to answer each question. Times Table Rockstars is a fun, interactive way of learning times tables. This app will be used in school but can also be accessed at home to further children's learning. Each child will have a Mathletics and Times Table Rockstars log-in stuck into their reading journal. 



Indoor P.E sessions will take place on a Tuesday. Outdoor P.E sesions will take place on a Thursday or Friday depending on when each class has their music lesson with Love Music Trust. However days may change from week to week so please could P.E kits stay in school Monday to Friday.

Some P.E sessions will be outdoors so a warm kit with suitable footwear will be needed.
