We hope you have had a lovely, restful weekend. Hopefully you have your new pack for learning over the next 2 weeks.

Week 5 Home Learning

Here is a copy of the timetable for this week. You also have this in your pack. You will notice that there is no maths lesson for today. This is so we can have a focused reading lesson. Maths for today is to set up TTRockstars!

As there is no taught maths lesson today, please start the day by trying your TTRockstars logins.

https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth

There is a TTRockstars information letter for parents in your pack; this has a sticker stating login details for your child. The parent guide explains the different modes that your child can play.

TTRockstars is for learning times table facts by heart, including the division facts too. We have set the tables for Year 2 so that every week, they will just be focusing on one times table and after a few weeks this will change to two and then all the times tables for Year 2. Remember, we only expect children to know their x2, x5, x 10 and x3 tables by the end of Year 2.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any problems. We hope you enjoy playing and learning your times tables!
