Multiplication Tables Check

Hello year 4.
I am so happy to be Year 4's new class teacher! It's hard starting in the middle of a year, both for me and the children! The children have been wonderful - very polite and welcoming.


Our English work is based on a story called Arthur and the Golden Rope. It's a myth and we will write our own myth based on Arthur's story. In maths we are multiplying and dividing by 10 and by 100, and solving problems connected to the calculations.. In RE our first topic is all about the local community - church, school, the laity - asking why people want to help their community.  In science we are finding out all about the digestive system. In computing we are looking at keeping ourselves safe online and also at coding.


Spring 1 is a short half term so we have a lot to pack into our lessons.


Below is some general information to help you with our school and class routines: 

  • Mrs Cassidy and Mrs Troughton will be supporting in class daily. Mr Narramore will be in on Friday afternoons
  • Every day we will practise handwriting, times tables and spellings or phonics.
  • PE: There will be 1 session of PE per week -  on Friday, you will need to come in to school in your PE kit on Friday. You do not need to bring in your school uniform. On Thursday Year 4 will have swimming lessons. Please wear your full school uniform and bring your swimming kit in a waterproof bag/carrier bag.
  • Homework: Homework will be set every Friday and due in by the following Friday. The homework will be set on Purple Mash. The children have their passwords, but they can ask for a copy if it has been misplaced. Homework will be spelling or phonics practise, a maths activity (linked to our learning in class), and sometimes a different activity linked to work in class.
  • Reading: Try to read regularly and choose books you enjoy! Please bring your reading book in every day 
  • Times tables: We will practise our times tables every day in class. Children also need to access the site regularly in preparation for the Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) at the end of Year 4, but more importantly to become fluent in their times tables. Fluency greatly assists the children with their maths work (and life in general!)
  • Please only bring into school what you need - coat, reading books and record, bottle of water, and lunch box if you bring your own dinner.
  • If you need to speak to me I am on the playground before and after school, or please ring the school office and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
