To kick off the year, we are going to be spending time looking at addition & subtraction, multiplication & division and number & place value.
This year is an important year for Peacock Class because they are the first year to take the new Times Table Test at the end of the school year. Across the whole country, children in year 4 will be expected to know all of their times tables up to and including the 12 times tables. Click here for more information about the test.
To make sure the children are prepared for the test, we are going to start the year with daily times table practice but to make sure your children are as confident as possible, it would be very beneficial to them to be practicing at home too. This could be as quick as chanting some times tables during morning car queue or using some websites like Hit the Button or timestables to increase accuracy and speed.
Times Table Rock Stars is also a fantastic platform on which to practice. More information about this will be given in September.
