Reading records are checked on Monday's and Thursday's to ensure the children have read 5 pages. Children can use Bug Club and read online and read their own books from home too.
Children can use TTRockstars to get extra help with learning their times tables. They can battle each other and set personal challenges in order to recall their times tables faster.
Every week in our maths classes, we focus on a times table and the children will get the chance to battle for TT Champion.
The children also have a times table book in school.
