Hi Year 4! We hope you've had the best summer holiday and are excited to be coming back to school. We're very much looking forward to seeing you all again and getting to know you over the next year. We have some exciting topics and learning to do and we can't wait to get started!

Things to Remember!
Quick recall of all times tables up to 12 x 12 really helps children in all aspects of their maths work and as a school we believe that it is a crucial skill for all our children. The Year 4 children will be the first group of children to take the National Times Table Check in June, where they will be given 25 questions, with 6 seconds to answer each, tested on a computer.
We will be working hard in school to help the children master their times tables and there are also lots of ways at home that you can help your child and we would love you to support them at home too, even
five minutes every day working with your child, firstly to learn a specific times table and then testing them with random questions (not just in order from 1-12) has a huge impact.
If you want to look at the format of the Times Table Check then please visit mathsframe as it looks and works in a similar way. We will be using this in school to so that children are familiar with the format.
Useful websites with online games and activities are:
Your child also has a log-in to ‘Times Table Rock Stars’ which we would really encourage your child to use as it is a great way to learn times tables in a fun way.
If you need any further advice or help regarding times tables, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.
Thank you for your continued support,
Year 4 teachers
