Warm Up

Today is an opportunity to revisit anything you found tricky in the week. This is usually what we do in class to check our understanding and chat about what we need to work on next. It might be a particular x tables or it could be some of the work you have covered this week.

You could repeat one of the warm up activities to see if you are any faster.

You could play TTRS and see if your practice this week and last week has worked for you.
