Reading: Read at least 3 times per week (Accelerated reader book, books from home or class library book).

Times Tables: Regular practicing of times tables. Play Times Tables Rock Stars for a minimum of 30 minutes each week.

MEET THE TEAM
In addition to the daily maths lessons, children also complete a daily maths blast. KIRFS (key instant recall facts) such as multiplication tables and addition facts are learnt to automaticity to avoid cognitive overload in the working memory and enable pupils to focus on new concepts. The KIRFS documents provide an overview of each focus, and contain ideas about how parents can support their children with this at home.
