In Year 4, we will continue to use the White Rose Maths strategy to develop children's mathematical understanding. 

In the first half term the units of work focus on multiplication/division, area and fractions.  In the second half term units of work focus on fractions/decimals.

Additionally, children will regularly practise their times table knowledge, working towards immediate recall of all multiplication and division facts up to 12 times table.  The government have recently introduced a 'times tables check' for year 4 children - this will need to be completed in June.

 

 

(Please see Maths Curriculum Page for more information on the Year 4 Programme of Study)

 

We have recently launched TT Rockstars in school which is an excellent tool to help children learn their times tables.  All children should have brought home their log in and password - please ask if you need any help.
