If you don’t love maths – fake it!
Times tables are very important. Practise a little and often.
We’d recommend learning them in this order is 2s,10s,5s,4s,8s,3s,6s,12s,9s,11s,7s
Both digital and analog clocks. Discuss seconds, minutes, hours, and days
Play games with flash cards, board games, competitions and math websites to help your child practice.
These are the methods we use for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Please follow these methods at home to support in class learning:

Rather than having a ‘reading day’ the children will take part in Guided Reading activities on a daily basis. These activities will involve a mixture of reading with adults as well as individual reading activities. Your child is welcome to change their books as soon as they are ready to . We ask that the children bring their books in every day so they can be heard read as often as possible.
Taking time to read with your child at home each day and to hear them read to you is both important for them and a lovely way to spend time with your child. Try to make sure you’re in a quiet comfortable place before you start and not rushed. Please do encourage your child to get their reading book changed regularly – it really helps with their progress.
Pupils have two PE lessons each week; the type of lesson depends on the time of year, for example rugby in winter, athletics in summer. Children should have their full (named) PE kit in school at all times. If your child takes part in an after school sports club, remember that they should bring their PE kit back the following day.
As always, if you have any queries about the curriculum or your child’s progress and development, please do come in and discuss it with their class teacher. The best time for a quick word or to arrange a chat is at the end of school day when teachers let the children out. If you feel your concerns are not resolved effectively, please feel free to come and chat with Mr. Southcott.
