Important Information – Y4 Multiplication Check

In June 2021, all children within Year 4 will take part in a statutory multiplication tables check. Each child will take a short online test to make sure their times tables knowledge is at the expected level.

Please read the letter attached carefully for further information about the multiplication check: Times Table Letter for Parents 2020 2021

Due to the impact of school closures last year, we understand that children may have gaps in their times table knowledge. In Year 4, we have put an emphasis on times table practice; we are not only covering them as part of our maths lessons, but also in the afternoons. We would greatly appreciate it if you could continue to support your child with their times tables learning at home.

Times Table Rockstars is a great website to support your child with their times tables as it works on improving the speed of their recall. In addition to this, recordings of our times table songs can be found in the resources section of the Year 4 page of the website. From past experiences, lots of the children respond well to learning these songs to support them in learning and remembering their times tables.

(Songs Disclaimer: I apologise in advance for my singing ability- I’m no Beyonce!)

Y4 Nature Walk

Year 4 will be going on a Nature Walk on Friday 16th October 2020 in the afternoon. Given the changeable weather conditions at this time of year, please ensure that your child comes equipped with old clothing, a waterproof coat and suitable footwear in a plastic bag with their name on.

Thank you for your support,

Miss Macfarlane and Mr Jackson

Y4 Home Learning

If your child is self-isolating due to a family member displaying symptoms, please find attached ideas to support your child at home with their learning. Please note that if your child is self-isolating because they are displaying symptoms, we wouldn’t expect them to complete the tasks if they are feeling unwell.
