There might also be another session added from the Foundation Subjects like PSHE.  

Also, at the bottom of the page there are OPTIONAL additional activities if you would like to complete.

Continue to encourage your child to read daily and to complete a comment in their yellow reading record.  You could also listen to extracts/stories. Here are some useful links below:

Please also continue to practice times tables each day, using ‘Monster Multiplication’ on Purple Mash as a revision tool or use: https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/multiplication-tables-check-practice-tg-ga-190 which is a timed times table checker to help improve times tables skills.

Alternatively, you can practise your times tables using the Times Table Wheels which I have added to the Maths Resources section of the Year 5.  These are paper copies and so therefore they are not under timed conditions.
