Spelling & Times tables

Year 3 & 4 Statutory Spelling List

The above spelling list is available in all children's homework books.  Children will be asked to learn a column of spellings each week throughout the year, with a spelling test taking place every two weeks in the first half of the school year before moving to a weekly basis in the second half.

Year 4, 5 & 6 Times Tables Challenge Grid

The above grid can be a useful resource to work 'against the clock' and improve instant recall.  Times tables can be learned in a number of ways - singing, spotting patterns or relationships and simply memorising.  The order of the numbers on the grid isn't important- at St John's we strive to be as good as we can be and that comes through being able to recall times tables in any order.

Useful Times Tables Websites

I have added some useful websites below to aid with learning times tables.  Most are useful for pupils and parents and can give tips on how to learn times tables.  Additionally, is particularly useful as it offers a 'stepped' learning process, with each activity adding a little more challenge.
