Autumn 1 Knowledge Organisers


Bookbags are due in on Monday with homework completed, if your child does not bring their bookbag on this day their homework will be sent home on a sheet. Spelling and Maths homework will then be sent out on a Tuesday, with reading books changed. You must sign your child's reading record for books to be changed. 

Unfortunately, if bookbags are late, we may not be able to swap reading books until the following week.


It is important that the children know their times tables and division facts. Times tables support and give confidence to the children in lots of other areas of their Maths learning too. 

 The order the children should learn their facts in is; 10 x, 10 ÷, 2 x, 2 ÷, 5 x, 5 ÷

Children will be tested weekly, and by using a range of vocabulary. Please see examples on Class Dojo.

Don't forget that children can practice by logging into their TT Rockstar accounts (passwords in maths homework books) and by following this link: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button .

We will reward children who know their times tables by giving certificates in Friday's Star Worker assembly, as well as the children moving their astronaut on the whole class display.

We cannot wait to see how many certificates we give out this half term!
