Take a look at Katleyn’s homework project. The helmet was made from foam and cardboard, spray painted and scored to give it an authentic look. The inside shows some very clever joins…………

Well done Katelyn and dad, a great joint effort.

Do you need some help with your homework?

**Times tables grids**

The grid tables show the progression in learning times times.

Children should start with 2, 5 and 10s. These can be learned in order then in a random order.

Next comes the 4s (double the 2s) then the 8s (double and double the 2s again) again in order then in a random order.

This is followed by the 3s moving on to 6s (double the 3s)

The 7s and 9s stand alone.

These are just ideas your child should create their own grids in their maths homework books. Please encourage your child to create the grids neatly using the squares on the paper and a ruler (or straight edge for example a CD case).

Your child has been shown how these work in class but as an example:
