Times Tables 2019:

From this year (2019-2020), it will be statutory for all Year 4 children to take part in a multiplication tables check. I have added a website link which explains it in more detail.

https://matr.org/blog/times-tables-test-parents-guide/ 

To ensure that children get as much support and guidance as possible, we will continue to complete the time table tests each week but the children will also have opportunities to complete a multiplication tables checker through the week. The website we will be using for this will be: https://myquickmaths.com/ 

It can be a great resource to use at home to support learning and confidence. 

English

Below, you will see what our current learning in English is and ways that you can be supporting your child at home.

Poetry

The below poetry book will be read aloud in class and we will explore the range of poetry forms and styles it contains.

We will then look at creating two poems together in class: 'My favourite things about school' and 'Reasons why I love {insert favourite food!}' before we ask the children to create their own poem independently, titled 'My family inspire me because...'

We will be reading this poetry book and using it to inspire us to create our own poem!

Ways you can support your child at home:

  • create your own poems (this can be a useful website to look at)  https://www.poetry4kids.com/lessons/poetry-writing-lessons/ 
  • help them devise a list of reasons why they feel inspired by family members at home that they can bring into school to use in their writing
