Dear Parents and Carers,
Spellings: words from the year 3/4 statutory list
Please practise 2s, 5s and 10s at speed. Try 5 seconds maximum per question. Remember, Purple Mash games are great for this. To challenge your child, they could try recalling the related division facts. E.g. 12 ÷ 2 = 6 They could then recall the multiplication and division fact families for each times table.
E.g. 6 x 2 = 12, 2 x 6 = 12, 12 ÷ 2 = 6, 12 ÷ 6 = 2
Another great website for times tables games and activities is:
