Welcome to Year 4
New spellings given out
Reading should be done daily. The children's reading records should be signed and bought in daily. Once the book has been read the children will then choose a new book to read at home.
Times tables should be being learnt at home, as well as in school. This is in readiness for the Multiplication Check, which will be done in June. The children can practise their times tables by using TTRockStars, by saying them out loud or writing them down. Year 4 will need to have quick recall as well as knowing them well.
As part of the national curriculum, Year 4 will be going swimming on Wednesday mornings. It is part of their school day and essential all children attend. Please ensure your children has the correct kit in school. I would encourage children to bring their kit (swimming trunks/costume, a towel and a hat for girls) in on a Monday morning.
Multiplication Tables Check (MTC)
Year 4 will have their Multiplication Tables Check in June, the dates will be confirmed later on in the year.
It is important that all year 4 pupils practise their times tables for speed as well as accuracy.
The check consists of 25 questions and the children have 6 seconds to answer each question.
Use the link below to practise as it is in the same format as the actual check. Children can also use TTRockstars to practice their times table knowledge and speed.
