    Our Year 4 Learning


    We are enjoy a broad curriculum which we are proud of, this covers a range of subjects that develop our children and their learning. We believe that this is a fundamental part of supporting children with their understanding of the World in which they live. Please see highlights of our half term which we will continue to update below.


    Here is the curriculum map for Year 4, it contains all the exciting, interesting things we will be learning this year. 


    On our class page, you can take a look at what we will be learning about each term, as well as keep track of any important reminders or special dates for the children.



    Year 4 Homework

    We set homework on a Thursday for the next Tuesday. 

    Here is the homework for the half term, you will also get a physical copy. You are always welcome to speak to me on the Friday after homework is set or the Monday before it is due. 

    Times Tables


    It is important that your child practises their times tables, this will help to prepare them for the Times Table check. 


    What is the Multiplication Tables Check?


    The Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) is an assessment that will be taken by key stage 2 pupils towards the end of their academic year in Year 4 (some time in June). The MTC’s main purpose is to ensure that children manage to reach an expected standard in their times tables knowledge before they start Year 5 to help them progress in many different areas in their maths learning.


    This Year 4 Times Tables Test is taken online. When taking their Year 4 MTC, pupils will be asked 25 questions on their times tables, ranging from their 2 times tables to their 12 times tables. For each question, children are given a set time limit of 6 seconds with which to answer and are also given a short rest period of 3 seconds between each question.


    The DfE have decided to ask more questions about the 6, 7, 8, 9, and 12 times tables than others such as the 2, 3, 4, 5, 10 and 11 times tables that children generally master earlier in their learning. There are no questions on the 0 or 1 times tables either. Of course, our questions are generated with these rules in mind, so the experience is as close to the real Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check as possible.


    Weekly Spellings


    Here are the spellings for the half term, these are designed to help to teach children rules behind the Year 3/4 spellings.
