Times Table Rock Stars  children that have been using this regularly at home are making real improvements with their recall of multiplication and division facts. Please allow your child to access the website or app regularly at home as it is having a noticeable impact for those using it regularly. Children are encouraged to go on TTRS at least three times a week. 

We also recommend going on www.timestables.co.uk .

This site will allow pupils to become more familiar with the assessment format they will be required to complete later on in the year. Click on the Multiplication Tables Check tab for this. They will have 6 seconds to complete each of 25 questions. 

There are also lots of times tables games to go on here too. 

IMPORTANT

 Home Time If your child is going home with someone other than yourself, please let us know.  This can be done by telling the teacher directly the day before,  phone or via email to admin@st-james.hereford.sch.uk . If this is not done, we may not be able to let them go home with someone different without inconveniencing you. 

Dressing for the weather - Please make sure that your child comes to school with a coat every day or sun hat/ sun cream as appropriate.
