Welcome to our Elm class page.
Welcome to Elm.
Our teacher is Mr Bates.
Supporting us in our learning are Miss Wood & Mrs Martin.
Mrs Knight covers during PPA time which is Tuesday.
If you have any queries, the door is always open but ignore that option currently! Please contact via ClassDojo or phone.
Reading books can be changed on any day when we arrive in the morning. Returned books must be put in our quarantine box. Books selected from the selection displayed. Selection made by looking at the cover only.
Reading records are collected every Monday morning so that the number of home reads can be counted.
If possible, please try to hear your child read 4-5 times each week.
It really helps with their reading and writing development.
Spellings are tested on Tuesday mornings.
Year 4 Times Tables
The National Curriculum states that times tables are a key mathematical skill that children should know by the end of year 4.
In the summer term, year 4 children will have a statutory times table test. They will need to know their times tables up to 12x. This will be an online test where children will have 6 seconds to answer each randomly generated question.
In school, we will be practising times tables on a daily basis using a variety of strategies. Each week, children will have a focus times table. Once they have mastered this, they will move on to the next one in our new Year 4 version of the Diamond Challenge. The order in which children will tackle the times tables is: 10, 5, 2, 4, 8, 3, 6, 12, 11, 7, 9.
At home, it would be really helpful if you could support children to practise their focus table - and others if you wish! You could do this by encouraging them to use Times Table Rockstars or any of the websites and strategies listed below. Although division won’t be included in the test at the end of the year, it would still be useful to include division questions as you help your child learn their tables.
A good grasp of the times tables is a key skill in Maths and will support children throughout their mathematical learning.
Games is on Friday afternoons. Please can children wear games kit to school on Fridays starting 25th September.
