What to bring to school:

All student should have a book-bag/ bag and water bottle.

The year 2 Goldfinches are trying to learn and practise their 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables at home to use regularly in school.



Goldfinch Rock Stars

The children can use their knowledge of the times tables they are learning to become 'Rock Stars'. They can do this by using the Times Table Rock Star (TTRS) times tables website or app on you mobile phone. They can then take their place on the Rock Star leader board in school. Please also try out Numbots, it's equally as fun!
