In Maths this week we will be focussing on multiples, multiplication and division. Please use the resources below alongside the daily instructions to complete your work.
Mathletics (If you need a reminder of your log in details, please email the Year 4 team)
Please complete the daily Mathletics or Rockstars tasks. You may find it useful to complete these tasks to start your Maths lesson. Remember to click the ‘i’ for a short video clip to help you.
Times Table Rockstars (If you need a reminder of your log in details, please email the Year 4 team)
Please complete the 10 minutes of Times Tables Rock Stars ‘garage’ set for this week. Simply login and you will only be able to play in this game mode. We highly recommend practising little and often, maybe 2 minutes each day. Of course, children can complete more games if they would like to and even challenge their friends in Rockslam.
For further advice on helping your child learn their tables please visit https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/maths/primary-multiplication-division/help-with-times-tables/
Having checked your scores and progress last week, The Year 4 team are hoping that even more Year 4 children will complete the Mathletics and Rock Stars work set throughout this week.
If any additional support is needed please do not hesitate to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
