Recommended Reads for Year 4
Half Termly letter
All the children in year 4 will be required to take the new multiplication check in the summer term so we are having a huge push on learning times tables over the year. We have new times table practise books which are kept in school, and a copy has been sent home with the children to also practise. We also have different apps we subscribe to as a school where the children can practise their times tables in a fun way.
Times table Rock stars
We have a subscription to TT Rock stars which the children absolutely love! They can play on 'garage', 'studio' and complete 'soundchecks' which follow how the multiplication check will be in Summer.
We have completed in a battle of the bands against Sycamore class during the Autumn term and the children have won their own rock star afternoon!
From here children can access all of the resources from purple mash, there are lots of different things including the multiplication check which we do with the children every week - keep practising!
These apps help the children to learn and consolidate their tables and they can compete with their classmates and other schools.

What we have been doing
Children are asked to read every day, whether this be to an adult or another person. This can be recorded in their yellow homework diary. Please do ask children a variety of questions. A helpful sheet has been attached below to help guide the questioning around texts.
Every week children are given mental maths homework which has been differentiated to their level. Please encourage your child to complete as much of this independently before support is given, but also encourage them to use objects and pictures to aid their calculations.
Handwriting practice sheets are offered to the children each week, if your child does not take one, please do encourage them to still practice in their handwriting book at home.
Mission possible, each half term the children are given a homework booklet, children can be as creative as they wish and if they would like to investigate a subject further then please encourage them to do so. We are always to see what the children are passionate about!

Below are the different times table cards the children need to practise with at home.
