Key Instant Recall Facts (KIRFS)


Padlet: Our class padlet, for book reviews, can be accessed here – please add whenever you finish a book you’d like to share with everyone in our class. 


Maths: Children should carry out a Doodlemaths ‘a day’ task every day and there are also a range of great maths games on the app (not on the web version).


Children should continually practise their times tables at home using Doodletables as well as other sites such as  Top Marks, who also Additionally, they also have a smartphone app called ‘Hit the Button’ (at a cost of £2.99) which I highly recommend to support mental times table strategies.


SATs: You can find a list of recommended texts here to further support your child. Miss Roberts and I are particularly fond of the 10-minute ‘SAT Buster’ books – a quick and easy to use tool to build confidence and speed in your child’s thinking.

How you can help your child at home this term: 

  • Reading – Predict events and their effects at different points throughout a narrative. Spend time looking at key words and author decisions. 

  • Writing - Collect ideas and vocabulary from reading to bring and use in a meaningful way to writing 

  • Maths - Quick recall of multiplication facts to 12 x 12 and corresponding division facts
