Year 4

Welcome to the start of a new and exciting year. 

This half-term, we are learning about The Ancient Egyptians. Within the theme, we will be exploring when and where the Ancient Egyptian people lived, who the most important people were and how death was dealt with in Ancient Egypt.

To provide the us with an insight into life during this period we will be visiting Leeds City Museum on Friday 22nd September (4J) and Wednesday 27th September (4M).

Maths Learn By Heart Targets (LBH)

LBH homework will be sent every fortnight. To begin with these tasks will be times table based. We would appreciate any help you could give your child in becoming confident and fluent in their recall of the multiplication and  division facts for the set times tables.

 

 Target 1

We have identified that although the children have previously worked on the 4 times table, they are a little rusty with their quick recall of the facts after the long summer break.

Please practise the multiplication and division facts for the 4 times table with your child. It is essential that your child can answer questions, presented in a variety of ways, without relying on their fingers or other objects, up to 12 x 4.

 

For example:

What are 6 lots of 4?

What is 36 divided by 4?

In Asda, cupcakes are sold in boxes of 4. If you needed cupcakes for 16 people, how many boxes would you need to buy?

 

 Please return the LBH book to class by Wednesday 27th September ready to be challenged on Friday 28th September.
