Maths in Term 4


This term we will begin by continuing to explore and manipulate multiplicative relationships.  This will involve multiplying 2 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers and using formal written methods.  We will also be multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100.

 

Later in the term we will be understanding and exploring the use of Coordinates.

 

At the end of the term we will be working with fractions, recapping our previous knowledge from Year 3 before moving on in Term 5.

 

Over the whole year we will be practising our Times Tables in readiness for the Year 4 Times Table check.

What can parents do to support learning at home?

 

  • Ensure children are secure with their times table knowledge up to 12x12. This supports understanding in so many areas of maths.
  • Practise quick recall of number bonds to 10, 20 and 100 - the more confident they are with this, the better!
  • Help children to secure their written methods of calculation (please follow the schools calculation policy for this).
  • Practise multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 using knowledge of place value (place value grids can help with this).
  • Ensure children are secure and confident with telling the time to the nearest minute - both on analogue and digital clocks.
  • Use directions in a real-life environment - when you are travelling by car, using GPS to get to a location, reading road signs and maps.
  • Use measurements in real-life situations such as weighing ingredients when cooking and baking.
  • Play a game of battle ships to help with the reading of co-ordinates.
