Maths

Children should be practising their times tables up to 12 x 12. We have times tables test periodically but this knowledge is necessary for daily maths lessons. Practise mental maths skills for example multiplying and dividing by 10,100 and 1000. Counting in 10s, 20s, 25s, 50s and 1000s. Other daily tasks such as reading times on the clock, converting numbers to Roman numerals or even adding money for shopping show that maths is a real world skill that we all need.

English

Your child should have Bug Club login. Visit https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0 to log on. The user name and password should be in their organiser/diary and the school code is rsms. Please see your child's teacher in you cannot log into the account.

Your child will also have spellings to learn every week.  These may be keywords which we need to know how to spell by the end of Year 4, or words that follow a spelling rule. Spelling are given out by Friday and the test is the following Wednesday They should be stuck into your child's organiser/dairy. Please help you child learn them by testing them using look, say, cover, write check. They are also listed below.

Reading Diaries are regularly checked and children are expected to read at least 3 times a week. Once by Wednesday and three times by Friday. Please read with your child and write in their diary to say what book and pages and how they read. Reading books and diaries should be brought to school each day.

If you would like any support to help your child at home with any aspects of learning, please see your child's teacher and we will be happy to provide you with relevant materials. 

Year 4 have covered all the 3/4 spelling words now so children can keep practising at home.
