“Pupils should be able to recite their times tables up to 12 x 12 by the age of nine.” - OFSTED, 2014.
As a school we see the importance that times tables knowledge brings to a child's life and how it makes a noticeable impact on their maths. The children will be focusing on the 3s, 4s and 8s this term. Children should log onto their times tables rock stars account to continue to build on their knowledge and earn points in the process.

The children have been discussing how we can grow different vegetables within the school grounds throughout the year. Over the next few weeks, the children will be researching what vegetables will be suitable to grow at this time of year. Miss Tilcock will be working with some children to clear out the flowerbeds and plant our vegetables.
If your child has a great interest in this, please feel free to send them into school with any books or research to share with their class.
This term, the children are exploring about our 'Extreme Planet'. They have already started to identify the different climate zones and have been locating different mountain ranges.
We are looking forward to receiving the children's volcanoes for their topic homework ready to erupt them. If you need support with your child's topic homework, please speak to their class teacher.
In English, the children have been identifying the features of an instruction text. Throughout this topic, the children have been exploring how to write instructions using imperative verbs and time connectives.
They have also enjoyed following different recipes and instructions as a class.
This term, the children are exploring how to create algorithms for their scratch characters. The children have been thoroughly enjoying their computing lessons.
The children have shown great determination towards their maths from the start of the year. It has been fantastic to see so many children trying to tackle different challenges within maths.
