My Maths (

All the children have a copy of their login details. If they lose them, please don't hesitate to email us.



This week the Maths activity is to complete a timed multiplication grid (working on their times table knowledge). Once the children have completed it, record the time on your multiplication grid.



All the children have a copy of their spelling list for the year. If they lose them, please don't hesitate to email us.

This week the children are learning 8 of the Year 3 and 4 Common Exception words. These are:

  • guide
  • natural
  • probably
  • though
  • breathe
  • early
  • heard
  • naughty

Write each word 5 times, switching the hand you write it with each time. Say the word as you spell it. It is important your child is learning their spellings weekly.

They attend meetings with the other school council members from across school to share ideas of their own their class' views and opinions.
