My Maths

My Maths homework will be set weekly on Fridays and will be due in the following Friday. The children’s login information has been stuck into their Reading Records and the children have been shown how to use this in class.

TT Rockstars

In addition to My Maths homework, the children should regularly access the website TT Rockstars to practise their times tables. As above, the children’s login details are stuck in their Reading Records and they have been shown how to use this in class. It is recommended that ‘little and often’ is best to help children learn, retain and recall the times tables facts. This could be 5-10 minutes daily. For your information, there is a TT Rockstars app which can be downloaded from the App Store. By the end of Year 2, children should be confident in knowing the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. We will be recapping these. By the end of Year 3, children should be confident in the 4 and 8 times tables as well.


Spelling words will be issued on a Monday in the green Spelling Books. Children should practise these spellings ready for the spelling test in school on Friday. Therefore, please ensure spelling books are brought into school on Mondays and Fridays.

Water Bottles: Pupils should bring a named, reusable water bottle into school every day.

Remote Learning

In the event of a school or bubble closure, or if children are required to self-isolate, tasks will be set on the following websites for children to complete.

As well as set work on these websites, children will be given workbooks for a variety of subjects, including English and Maths and they will be assigned daily tasks to complete within them. A timetable of these activities wil be shared via the class website page. Children are also encouraged to read daily whether that be books from home or school.

Children should all have access to their usernames and passwords for the above websites. They were stuck into their reading records on the first day of school. If your child does not have access to their username of password please email me and I can provide this.
