Spellings Year 3 and 4

Our P.E. days are Wednesdays and Fridays. Please remember to bring your P.E. kit into school on P.E. days. All P.E. kit must be clearly labelled with the child's name.

No jewellery is to be worn; if pupils have pierced ears they must come to school with earrings removed or are able to independently remove earrings and keep then in a safe container for the duration of the lesson. 

The appropriate P.E. kit must be worn in order for pupils to be able to take-part in P.E. activities in regards to our P.E. risk assessment. 

Please check the current curriculum overview, or ask your child, to identify what Maple are currently learning in P.E. lessons.

Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check 


The multiplication tables check (MTC) is a statutory for all year 4 pupils in England*. 

The purpose of the MTC is to determine whether pupils can recall their times tables fluently. The results can support the school in identifying where additional support can be put in place.


Here are some helpful links for parents to support their child in preparation for the test:

*Government website with information on the MTC:

Mock test and information about test questions/ how to revise/ what to expect:

Miss Thorpe highly recommends using this resource as often as you can as well as reciting times tables at home to build confidence. We will be using this resource in class to familiarise pupils with the interface of the test. ~ NB this is a free resource and does not require logging in or paying for a subscription. The link above will take you to the page with the mock test and the information about the test ~
