Reading

Reading is a fundamental aspect of children’s learning. Please make sure that your child brings their book bag to school every day along with their home reading books and reading record. Please read with your child at least 3 times per week and remember to comment and sign their reading record. This will allow staff to see how much your child is reading and enables school and home to work together in promoting your child’s reading journey.

Whilst in Year 4 your child will take part in a multiplications table check. The purpose of the check is to determine whether pupils can recall their times tables fluently, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It will help schools to identify pupils who have not yet mastered their times tables, so that additional support can be provided.

Schools will have a 3-week check window in June to administer the check. Teachers will have the flexibility to administer the check to individual pupils, small groups or a whole class at the same time. For more information on the multiplication check please click here.
