Spellings and times tables will run on a two-week cycle. All children will receive a list of 20 spellings. 15 of the spellings will follow the rule taught in class. 5 or the spellings will be taken from the statutory Year 3/4 spelling list and will not necessarily follow a rule. Each week, the children will be tested on 10 spellings. The majority will be from the list in their planners and some will be words that are not on the list but that follow the same rule. Please speak to your child’s teacher if you have any questions about this. In addition to this, the children will be given a times tables focus which will be tested on a Friday.


Spellings and times tables can be found in the children’s planners in the ‘spelling focus’ and ‘number focus’ sections.


All children are expected to use Doodle Maths and Times Tables Rockstars regularly at home. All children should have their login details on page 17 of their planners. If you have any issues accessing either of these, please speak to your child’s class teacher.


All children are expected to read for 15 minutes each night. We ask that you please sign your child’s planner at least once each week to confirm that they have read at home.
