Maths

There are still far too many children in Year 6 who do not know all of their times tables by heart. Tables are an essential part of maths and feed into almost all areas of the maths curriculum. Children MUST know there tables thoroughly if they are to gain a good level in the maths SAT.

 

 

Revision Materials

Once again, all children in Year 6 will be supplied with selected revision material for English and Maths. These books will be supplied free of charge by school (RRP £10) and represent a big investment in the children. We hope that you will encourage your child to use them as often as possible as they will help them prepare for SATs. These will be given out in the meeting on Monday 14th September.
