Homework – times tables, spelling and reading

Children need to be completing times table, spelling and reading homework by Friday each week – see additional information below.

Times tables

Expectations

Year 2

x and ÷ 10, 2, 5

Year 3

x and ÷ 3, 4, 8

Year 4

x and ÷ 6, 7, 9, 11, 12

Children should know their times tables off by heart by the end of Year 4. The government has introduced a compulsory times table check for Year 4 pupils. This is a timed test allowing 6 seconds per question.

Children should visit https://ttrockstars.com/login to play at least ten ‘Garage’ times table games by Friday each week. The times tables they are able to access through ‘Garage’ games will reflect the level they are at in class. If you don’t have access to the internet, please let me know, as worksheets can be provided instead. Use of the internet is preferable however, as this is how they will be tested in Year 4.

Spelling

Please make sure your child’s Spelling Book is in school every day, so that words can be recorded inside them during our daily spelling lesson. Please help your child to learn these words at home.

Reading

Please record reading at home in your child’s Reading Diary at least once per week. The more often you can read with your child, the more fluent they will become and the easier they will find all aspects of their learning. Books in book bags are changed every Friday (unless your child hasn’t finished with them – please ensure comments in Reading Diaries reflect this.)

Water, fruit and milk

Please make sure your child has a water bottle every day, containing water or juice. Children may bring fruit from home for a morning snack. If you’d like to pay for milk, please ask at the School Office.

Nut allergies

There are children and adults in school with nut allergies. Packed lunch and treats for birthdays must be checked carefully to ensure they are completely nut-free.
