Spellings: The children will be given spellings every Monday to practise and they will be tested on a Friday.

Times tables: We encourage children to practise times tables and use TTRS (Times Table Rockstars).   The focus will be on 3, 4, 6 & 8 times tables in Yr3.

Homework: Now the children are in the juniors, they will be set English and Maths homework online on a site called Mirodo.  They will be given a unique username and password to access the site.  We will be able to monitor their progress online when they submit their work.

Reading Books: We encourage you to please read at home as much as possible with your child.  Their books will be changed as and when returned but we do recommend they change their books weekly unless their book is a longer text.
