Please encourage your child to read regularly for pleasure and record this in their Reading Records. These will be checked every Friday and children will earn a raffle ticket if they have read on 4 or more days that week.

Every Friday, children will bring home their maths and Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation (SPAG) books. The task will be dated on the contents page and recorded in Reading Records. Children will earn a raffle ticket for each task completed and two for each task if the books are returned by Thursday!

Times tables is really important in Chough Class and by the end of Year 4 the children should know their tables up to 12. See the maths resources below to help.
