Due to the Year 4 Timestables check that now takes place, children should be accessing TTRS for 15 minutes per night 5 x per week.
Reading books will be changed fortnightly due to them having to be quarantined after use. Home reading should be documented in their diaries. This should take place 3x per week. Children may also read a book from home alongside their class reading book.


Going forward homework for Maths and Science/ Humanities will be sent home to complete via Google Classroom. Parents will be notified when this goes live.

Multiplication Tables Check 

All state-funded maintained schools and academies in England are required to administer an online multiplication tables check (MTC) to year 4 pupils. The national curriculum specifies that pupils should be taught to recall the multiplication tables up to and including 12 × 12 by the end of year 4.
