We expect that every child in Volans will read with an adult at home at least 3 times a week… more would be fantastic! Please sign this in your child’s P.O. (Personal Organiser). This is checked on a regular basis.

"The more you read, the more you know. The more you learn, the more places you go"

Times Tables

Please practice times tables with your child on a weekly basis. It is vital that your child is able to instantly recall all their tables and the associated division facts by the end of Year 4. Little and often is the best way to learn these!

Flipped Learning

Children are encouraged to watch flipped learning videos before and after lessons to help develop and consolidate their learning. These videos can be accessed via the ‘Victorious Volans’ link on the Google Classroom page. Please check Google Classroom regularly for updated help and support with your child’s learning.


The class are currently using Mathletics, an online resource / website which will challenge and support the children in their mathematical development. Please access as much as possible.


Spelling Shed

Children are given a spelling list to learn on a weekly basis. These are then tested through a passage of dictation. Please log on to Spelling Shed to complete the weekly assignment and write out your spellings regularly in order to embed the spellings.
