LETTER TO PARENTS- Autumn 2.

Reading

May we remind you that reading with your child is an extremely important daily habit that will help them develop a life long love of reading, as well as building key learning skills and enhancing their general knowledge. It is also a relaxing way to end the day. 

Each child will soon have an appropriately levelled reading book and a reading record. You can pass on any comments in these records and also use it to record any other reading material your child reads/you read with your child.

 

Times Tables

Every Thursday morning their will be a small times table test in Class 4. It is therefore essential that you help your child to learn ALL the times tables from x2 - x12. Knowing times tables by heart makes maths easier for children and aids them in completing daily challenges.

There is a statutory times table assessment for all children in Year 4 in the summer term (more information will follow), so we are keen to ensure the children are 'on the ball' with their times tables this year!

Please remember to use Sumdog, it is a great resource for practising times tables and key Maths facts.

Each Thursday after the times tables test, the children will be given one specific times table fact to learn before the re test the following week.
