Home Learning will be uploaded to this Class Page on a Thursday and should be handed in by the following Tuesday. Answers to questions should be recorded in your child's home learning book. There is no requirement to print the home learning task. 

Spellings will be uploaded onto this Class Page and will be tested on a Monday.

Times Tables: in class, we are learning the 2 times table. The aim is for children to be able to recall this times table off by heart and out of order. Please see the section below with ways to support the learning of multiplication tables.
