Times tables should be practised daily at home. Lots of games can be found on the the websites www.topmarks.co.uk and www.timestables.co.uk.
This year, we have introduced a new reading system across the school called Accelerated Reader. This exciting way of reading allows your child to quiz on the books they have read using their unique log in. Once they have quizzed once in school, they can log in to their account and quiz at home using the link below.
If you have books at home or from the local library, you can check whether they are on the AR system and the reading level of the book using the following link: www.arbookfind.co.uk.
Your child should aim to read at least 5 times a week for 20-30 minutes.
