Y4 Multiplication Check-June 2023
This year the Year 4's will be completing a national multiplication check week beginning 20th June. This is will be completed on a tablet/ipad and consist of the children answering 25 times tables facts (multiplication only) with 6 seconds to answer each one. There is no pass or fail mark but the children should be constantly learning and revising their times tables up to 12 times 12 as much as possible. Children have been practising in school on Times Tables Rockstars completing the 'Soundcheck' as this is timed just like the multiplication check. If they could also practise at home on TT Rockstars this would be a great help. Please see the letter attached below which was handed out to parents with details of the check.
Home Learning resources can be accessed through Class Dojo.

We change Reading books on:

If your child is enjoying a good book and you find them reading it anywhere they go, snap a picture and send it to us on Class Dojo!
What We Are Learning About - Spring 1
In Maths, we are focusing on multiplication and division particularly on using
formal methods of multiplying and dividing two digit numbers by one digit numbers.
The children should now know all their times tables up to 12x12 and should continue to practice regularly on the TT Rockstars website to improve their speed and fluency.
We will also look at length and perimeter and we will be measuring in mm,cm,and m
and learn to convert measures from one unit to another.
