We are of course practicing these in school, but time and resources are limited and so individual practice at home is crucial.
I have linked to some resources at the bottom of this page which can be used to practise times tables fluency at home.

Our P.E. days are currently Thursdays and Fridays, so can all pupils please come to school in their P.E. kits on these days. It would also be very helpful if earings are not worn on these days.
