Year 4

 

Welcome to the Year 4 Page

Our team is made up of Mrs Burbridge and Mrs Sherwen, with support from Mrs Thornley, Miss Scales and Miss Pinnion. With our new curriculum in place, your children will have fun learning about a range of different topics this year. We will regularly update our page to share with you what the children have been learning.

 

Times tables in Year 4

Year 4 need to know all of their multiplication and division facts to 12, e.g. 9×8=72, 8×9=72, 72÷8=9, 72÷9=8. Counting ‘in groups of’ is a useful way of starting to learn, e.g. chanting 6, 12, 18, 24, 30… for the six times table.

The DFE have confirmed that all Year 4 children will be expected to take a multiplication test from summer term 2020. This multiplication tables check has been designed to help ensure that children in primary school know their times tables up to 12 off by heart. You can find more information on the DFE website here.

As well as being critical for everyday life, knowledge of multiplication tables helps children to solve problems quickly and flexibly, and allows them to tackle more complex mathematics later on in school. We are continuing to do lots of practice in school and we appreciate your support at home as well.

As a school we have subscribed to TT Rockstars, a fun online game to help the children learn. This is their weekly maths homework and they are expected to use it at least three times a week. Each child has their own login, if you need a reminder please ask Mrs Burbridge or Mrs Sherwen.

There are lots of websites and apps that can help your child practise. Hit the button and Coconut multiples are two popular games. We also listen to songs to help us learn like this Taylor Swift cover and this cover of Happy. Here are some worksheets you can print if you’d like.

 

Home Learning

Our home learning is currently based on Basic Skills- daily reading for at least ten minutes, weekly spellings to learn (with a recording sheet to write the words in sentences) and times table practise using TT Rockstars. The spelling sheet should be returned to school each Thursday and the children have a spelling test each Friday. TT Rockstars is an online service and the children should practise at least 3 times a week. It is available at https://play.ttrockstars.com/ and every child has their own login. If you have any questions, or need a reminder of your child’s login, please speak to your class teacher.

For any enquires/questions please contact year4@corinthian.liverpool.sch.uk
