TTRockstars

All pupils are encouraged to use the TT Rockstar App as much as possible; just 10 minutes a day can have an impact on their times table knowledge. If there are any problems with the app or you have misplaced a log-in, please let your class teacher know.

 

Reading

We will be reading with the pupils in school on a 1:1 basis and within teacher led groups. Please continue to read regularly with your child at home as it really does improve their attainment and confidence. As well as decoding words it is really beneficial to ask your child questions on what they have read e.g. To work out the definitions of new vocabulary, discuss why a character did or said something, recall an event and what happened. When you have read with your child at home please record this in their reading record as will use a class reward system for those children who have read 3 x a week or more at home.

Article 29: Your education should help you use and develop your talents and abilities.

As a proud ‘Rights Respecting School’ we learn about the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). Our class charters set out what both adults and children must do to ensure children can enjoy their rights.

Dear parents/carers, In June, Year 4 children will be participating in the Multiplication Tables Check (MTC). The purpose of the MTC is to determine whether pupils can recall their times tables fluently, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It will also help the school identify pupils who have not yet mastered their times tables, so that additional support can be provided.
