Conker Class Year 3 and Year 4
Welcome to Conkers class!
Conkers class is the first of our Key Stage 2 classes. This class is taught by Mrs Norris (Monday to Thursday) and Miss Reeve ( Wednesday afternoon and Friday). We also have Mrs McCaffery (HLTA & qualified teacher) in our class to help support the children with their learning.

Spellings - fun ways to learn them at home!
If your child has to self-isolate, it is expected that children at home will complete their learning as set by teachers.
Please go to your child's Online Learning Platform 'Seesaw' to access a range of personalised, allocated activities.
Home learning will be set weekly on the Seesaw learning platform from Monday to Monday and will consist of spellings, Maths and sometimes a reading comprehension. Children should aim for 1 hour of home learning a week. Spelling are given out from Friday to Friday and tested each Friday during our Literacy lessons.
The times tables sheets have been uploaded onto this webpage to help you practise their tables at home. Some children love Times Tables Rockstars (TTRS), while others prefer to practise either on paper or verbally with an adult. We hope by giving you both online tools and paper options, we cover all learning styles and preferences. We would recommend using a combination of paper and online and then also testing them verbally on their current times tables whenever you have a spare 5mins (ideally every other day!).
These are the following steps in which your child will move through in Year 3 and Year 4. We hope this approach will help most children to be able to learn and fluently recite all their times tables as multiplication and division facts by the end of Year 4. In each step, the questions will be tested as multiplication and division facts. For example, if they have been asked to learn their 5x tables, they should quickly be able to answer the following questions quickly without having to count through the 5x table in order first.
e.g. 5 x 7= , 9 x 5 = , 2 x 5 = , 25 divided by 5 =, 15 divided by ? = 3, 12 x 5
We would like children to work on their speed of recall of each times table, so they can quickly recall multiplication and division facts related to this table in a mixed order.
Step 1 - 2x table
Step 2 - 5x table
Step 3 - 10x table
Step 4 - 2x, 5x, 10x tables
Step 5 - 4x table
Step 6 - 3x table
Step 7 - 6x tables
Step 8 - 8x tables
Step 9 - 9x tables
Step 10 - 7x tables
Step 11 - All times tables upto 10x
Step 12 - All times tables upto 10x (extra challenge)
Step 13 - 12x tables
Step 14 - All times tables upto 12x
