Lime Class page
We are really missing having everyone in school! While most of the children are learning from home, information for home learning can be found via the link below. We are sharing some of the children's fantastic work that they are doing on this page via the 'Online Learning' link below.
Lime Class Info
We encourage the children to read at home, 5 times per week. This term, we are using reading record sheets for the children to bring home and record their reading at home. The children will bring their reading sheet home on Mondays and should return it to school the following Monday. On this sheet, you will find further information about reading at home, supporting your child with their reading and access to Bug Club.
The children are given spelling lists for the term at the beginning of each term and are tested weekly on Thursdays. Should you have any queries about the spellings or need a replacement spelling list, please contact me on Dojo.
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.
Mrs Knight teaches Games on Friday mornings. On Fridays, children should come to school wearing their full PE kit. Please make sure your child has appropriate clothing for outdoor PE (jogging bottoms, fleece and/or waterproof coat).
Earrings need to be removed for every sporting activity (including swimming) for Health & Safety reasons. If you wish your child to keep their earrings in, please obtain and complete a permission slip from the school office.
If you have any queries, please do contact me on class Dojo.
