The links below can be used at home to support revision of key skills.
At Woodfield, we believe that when it comes to times tables, speed AND accuracy are important – the more facts children remember, the easier it is for them to do harder calculations. Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help pupils master the times tables. To be a Times Table Rock Star you need to answer any multiplication fact up to 12×12 in less than 3 seconds!

Core Stories & Novel Study
These are the novels we are currently studying across KS2, taken from our core book lists below. We are using these in many different way across our English lessons.
|Year 3||Year 4||Year 5||Year 6|
At Woodfield Primary, each year group has a number of core books which we read, enjoy and learn from. These books will be used in our reading, writing and topic lessons. This means that we will get to know a substantial number of books really well! Check out the book lists below to find out what your child is reading this term!

Reading in Key Stage 2
For information on how we teach reading in Key Stage 2 and how you can support your child at home, please read the following leaflets. Copies have been emailed out and paper copies are available from reception.
The children in KS2 have the option to enjoy a healthy snack at play times on a Thursday and Friday. We ask that if you would like pay for tuck shop, you do so on a Monday so that we can purchase fresh snacks. Items are 50p each with a limit of 2 per child per day.
If you have any questions about the Tuck Shop, please see your child’s class teacher.
Please note the statutory assessment dates for Y6. It is important that your children are in school for these dates, and the days leading up to them as these cannot be re-scheduled:
Year 6 SATS: w/c 11th May 2020
At Woodfield we like to inform you as much as possible. Here is a video to accompany the information provided at the Year 6 SATs information session.
There is also a statutory multiplication tables check for children in Year 4. This assessment is an online assessment, designed to determine whether pupils are able to fluently recall their multiplication tables up to 12, through a set of 25 timed questions. This test will take place throughout June.
