Blue Class News
Hello Blue Class,
You have worked very hard to learn your 3 times table over the past 3 weeks. We are now moving on to learn the 4 times table and corresponding division facts. We will keep revisiting the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables so that we don't forget them!
Learning them at home is a great help. Here are some ideas for you.
- First, practise counting in 4s.
- Then, write the 4 times table out and see if you notice any patterns that might help you.
- After that, identify those that you already know by heart.
- Next, choose 2 tricky times table facts a day to keep going over until you have memorised them.
If you practise regularly you'll soon know them by heart. Once you know your 4 times table you'll be able to recall the corresponding division facts too.
Ask your parents to play games with you which involve recalling the 4 times table and corresponding division facts.
Keep working hard. It will be worth it!

Now that the colder weather is here please ensure you have extra warm layers with you on the days you go to Forest School, particularly an extra pair of thick socks. Many of you are bringing in hats, scarves and gloves. Please check that they have your name in to avoid things getting lost.

For those of you who have been eager to earn lots of stars on the School Wall there are two new activities linked to Planet Earth for you to have a go at. If you haven't been on the School Wall recently why not have a go to develop your learning further.
I hope you enjoy them.

Well done to Blue Class for a super start to the new academic year. Your enthusiasm and excellent attitude towards our Victorian topic has been a delight to see and I look forward to helping your learning develop further and to the successful creation of your own Victorian magazine.
Enjoy your Victorian homework and remember to keep reading regularly at home. Next week we will start guided reading where we can enjoy reading and learning about texts together.
See you tomorrow,
