Times tables 
It is important that children learn their times tables every week, but also are constantly recapping this as they are important in all areas of maths and children should be able to recall times table facts within seconds. 
 
This week the children will be tested on a mixture of 2 and 10 times table. The questions that will be covered are attached below.

During Summer Term we are learning to use all the skills needed for a game of tennis. Rain tried to stop play today but we were determined to  carry on and moved into the school hall!
We were very pleased to all be back together learning in school. We had a wonderful first week back.
Our class bubble were hoping that there would be more snow today.
We had lots of fun in English creating our own machines to take us to various destinations based on the story 'Whatever Next'. 
We enjoyed playing Bingo to practice our numbers followed by our maths challenge of how many ways to make a total of 8.
We looked at lighthouses and talked about why they were important. We then created our own lighthouses.
