What are we learning?

 

 Literacy

Our initial Literacy work will be based on the book Clockwork. 

Mathematics

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. Remember to use TT Rockstars to help challenge yourself with times tables.
