Hi Willow Class,
I hope everyone is keeping safe and is having lots of fun! Thank you so much to those of you who have sent in photos about your week. I have loved seeing what you have been up to. Please keep sending them in and I can add them to our class page so that we can keep in touch with each other.
I have been keeping busy the last two weeks by spending a lot of time turning our spare room into a nursery and doing lots of online shopping for the baby. She is due in 5 weeks time now so not long to go. I've also been trying to stay fit and active by doing some online yoga. It's a bit of a challenge with the bump!
After Easter your new teacher, Miss. Trayte, will be taking over from me. She will be putting more work on the new Phase 1 home learning page each week for you to complete, so make sure that you have a look. It would be nice if you could make her a poster about yourself, which you can email into school, so that she can get to know a little bit about you before she meets you. I have been speaking to her lots and I know that she is really looking forward to taking over Willow Class.
I am missing you all very much and I am so sorry that our last few weeks together were cut short but I am really looking forward to popping in to see you once you are back at school. You have been a lovely class to teach and I have lots of happy memories from this year. I hope you do too.
Look after yourselves, take care and stay safe, love Mrs Coe x

USEFUL LEARNING APPS FOR TABLETS
Welcome Evening Presentation - September 2019
In Phase 1, all children will be learning their times tables. It is a national requirement that all children know their times tables by the end of Year 4. Year 4s will now have a national test in June where they will be tested on their times table knowledge.
The children will be working their way through each times table in order to reach ‘Reasoning Rainbow’ where they will be able to apply their times table knowledge to word problems. The times table tests are ordered as follows:
- Bronze: 2s, 5s, 10s, Mixed
- Silver: 3s, 6s, Mixed
- Gold: 4s, 8s, Mixed
- Platinum: 7s, 9s, Mixed
- Diamond: 11s, 12s, Mixed
- Elite: All Mixed
- Reasoning Rainbow
Each week the children will have a 2 minute timed test on the times table they are on, they must answer all questions correctly in order to move up to the next times table the following week. The tests include both multiplication and division to ensure they full consolidate their times table (e.g. 3x6=18 and 18÷3=6). Once they have passed each times table test on each stage they will receive a certificate for their achievements.
Please do support your children in practising their times tables at home. Here are some links which will support you with this.
