Times table practise is essential for all children from Year 1 to Year 6 (and beyond!). At Hythe we subscribe to Times Table Rockstars which can be found here. There is also an 'add-on' within this site called 'Numbots' which helps children to become more fluent with their general number facts.
At Hythe we also subscribe to Spelling Shed and pupils can all access the resources they need to practise their spellings at an age-appropriate level. You can find the login page for Spelling Shed here.

Year R: Our Year R children have started this half term with the 'I'm going on a dragon hunt' story by Maurice Jones. Lots of their work will link to this story. See how much of the story they can remember! Perhaps they could make a dragon hunt around the house - what could they go over? Under? Around? Through? etc.
As it's November, they have also been learning about firework safety. They could make a poster to help others keep safe. In their art and craft area, year R children will be making firework pictures - see if they can impress you with some of their artistic firework skills!
Years 1 and 2: This half term Years 1 and 2 will be looking at the history of toys. At home, they could create a poster about their favourite toy, their parent's favourite toy and a grandparent's favourite toy. Try to find out as much as possible!
They have also been learning about Diwali. Click here to watch a video all about Diwali celebrations. They can also try to create some Rangoli patterns.
Years 3 and 4: Phase 3/4 have just started their addition and subtraction unit of work in maths. They have been practising adding and subtracting 2, 3 and 4 digit numbers. Children can create their own sums by rolling dice to create numbers to add and subtract.
Year 3/4 are also learning about Ancient Egypt. They've started learning about the great pyramids. Click here to access some information and videos that will really help to understand this ancient civilisation.
Years 5 and 6: Year 5 and 6 pupils have been learning all about World War 2. Watch this video to recap the beginning of Britain's involvement and then watch this video to look at the geography of the war. Try to draw a map of Europe that highlights some of the key events during World War Two.
In art, they children have been looking at the styles of both Henry Moore and Julian Opie. Look at some artwork from both of these artists then choose a style to recreate a sketch linked to life during WW2.
