Welcome to the Cherry Class webpage! This page is a great place to see what your child has been up to in school and will be updated regularly with letters and photographs :)
Key Information for Cherry Class:
TT Rockstars & Hit the Button. (learning times tables online).
Your child has a log in for ttrockstars (https://ttrockstars.com/ ) which is a computer game to learn times tables and recall facts quickly. Soon we will be setting homework on this platform but for now your child is welcome to play when they want to. The system is set up as 'automatic training' in which the computer assesses how fast your child responds to each question. If they are quick it moves them on. If they are slower they stay with more simple facts.
To support your child's times table skill , they could also play on a game called hit the button https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button . This game has all the answers on the screen and the children tap the number which is the answer. I'd recommend it for now.
Does your child go online at home? We’ve used the following site in school to help teach our class about safe use of social media and online games.https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/8_10/control/chat/
We recommend that you spend some time on this site with your child so that you are aware of what they should be doing to stay safe and have fun whilst online.
Select the ‘cyber café’ and then choose 'enter' after this the 'host' called Griff should be able to tell you what to do to explore the site.
