Welcome to Panda class, taught by Ms Osborne and assisted by Mrs Griffin. 



Children should read every day, and it is still important, even if they are able to read by themselves, that they still read to an adult, or are read to by an adult. We would appreciate you having 'book talk' discussions with your child in order to develop their enjoyment of reading and their comprehension and word skills. You may find these links useful in guiding you on reading for pleasure and supporting your child at home: https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/tips-and-advice/reading-tips/encouraging-older-children-to-read/ or https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/tips-and-advice/reading-tips/ .




Below are some question stems to assist you with this (Vipers KS2). If you are looking for suitable books then this website may be helpful: https://www.booktrust.org.uk/booklists/1/100-best-books-9-11/ 




English homework is given on a Tuesday to be returned by Friday.  Maths homework is given on a Friday, to be returned by Wednesday.  Homework is set to support current learning in class, to help consolidate skills taught.  It should take no longer than 30 minutes to complete. 


Children need to know all of their times tables up to 12x12 by the end of Year 4. Attached below is a copy of a 12 x 12 grid for you to download if it would be helpful. There are many good, free websites for children to play mental arithmetic games on.
