YEAR 5 TIMES TABLES CHALLENGE!
Dear Year 4,
As you sadly missed the Year 4 Multiplication Check this June, your new Year 5 teachers have agreed to plan an exciting Times Tables Challenge for you in September! This means all your hard work in Year 4 will be put to the test, so keep practising those tables! Remember it is a national expectation that all children know all the multiplication tables by the end of Year 4. We have heard that certificates might be involved!

Update 1st April
Hello Year 4!
We would love to see your photos of you doing activities at home...they can be school related or fun activities. Please email these to your class email address and we will put your pictures in the Redwood, Birch or Willow Class section, where we normally put pictures of our learning in school.
Remember to complete your multiplication checks on Purple Mash. We are looking at your scores!
Next week it is the Easter holidays. We will not be setting online learning during the two week holiday but please use the links to other resources if you want anything else to do.
Best wishes and Happy Easter from the Year 4 Team.
A parent has asked if they should email learning to teachers once it is completed. As a school, we feel it should be kept in their books until we return and then it can be shared.
However, perhaps if your child does some work they are really proud of, they could take a photo and send it via the class email for some praise and feedback!
Update 30th March
We have added more Topic, Science and RE and Art will be added soon. You don't have to complete all the activities. It's also fine if you want to do a project on something that interests you.
