Please note that PE days can change, so your child needs to have a PE kit in school every day. This should include indoor kit (T-shirt, shorts, pumps) and outdoor kit (Tracksuit and trainers).
Please remember to read lots at home and record in your diary. Please read other things besides your school reading book- the more the better- for example, other story and non fiction books, poems, magazines, signs, even ingredients on packets!
Please remember also to practise your times tables- focus on the 2X 5X and 10X tables in Derwent Class.
Remember:- Bronze means you can say the whole table in order- eg "one times two is two, two times two is four....." fluently.
Silver means you can say the answer to any sum from the times table eg "what's 4 x 5? What's 8 X 5 ?
Gold means you can say the reverse division fact- eg in five times table, what's 20 divided by 5? how many fives in 15?
In ten times table, what's 50 divided by 10?
