TT Rockstars – The expectation is either to complete 3 x 3 minute sessions or 9 x 1 minute sessions over the course of the week. The children can choose to use Garage or Studio, or a mixture of both for this.  Garage targets tables that the chidren are deemed to needed for the child. Studio tests all of the times tables up to 12 x 12 (The Year 4 Expectation and the way to earn speed certificates and badges) These sessions will earn a further 10 minutes of Golden Time.

Summer Term

 

Falcons class have been lucky enough to be the first class into the New classroom. We are loving the wonderful space and the peace and quiet.  I am extremely proud of how well the whole class handled the challenges of being based in the central area for two terms. The children learned a lot about focussing despite the inevitable distractions.
The children have made a great start to this term and we feel that we will have a fantastic, busy term!
