Homework Patnership

We value the partnership between
school and home.
Homework plays an important part in this partnership and strive to work in collaboration.
We value parents as first educators and see the value of extending the learning journey outside the classroom.        

Times Tables
Rock Stars

In either paper form or online,
Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice.

Each week concentrates on a different times table, with a recommended consolidation week for rehearsing the tables that have recently been practiced every third week or so.

This format has very successfully boosted times tables recall speed for hundreds of pupils over the last 4 years.
