Homework will be set on Friday and will be due in the following Friday.
Homework will be given either as a paper copy or on class dojo depending on the nature of the activity. We aim to link homework to an area of our current Topic, Maths or English so please encourage the children to complete this to the best of their abilities.

Every child in the class has their own log in details for TTR which have been stuck in the front of reading diaries. If you forget your details, please ask and I c an get them sorted for you!
By the time the children reach the end of Year 4, they are expected to know all of their multiplication table facts at a good recall speed up to 12 x 12.
TTR is a great way for children to practise their multiplication tables recall. It asks the children both multiplication and corresponding division facts to ensure they know their multiplications really well.
The tables for the Garage mode is set by me and will change depending on your child's progress in the Times Table Challenge which takes place on Fridays.
Studio Mode is all multiplication tables up to 12 x 12 - this is where children's rock status comes from based on their average recall speed.
Soundcheck Mode is like the MTC (see below). Children are asked 25 questions and have 6 seconds to answer each question. Children can let the 6 seconds run out with a correct answer submitted and they will still achieve the mark - you do not need to press enter each time.
Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) June 2024
In June 2024, the children in year 4 are expected to take an online multiplication tables check which tests the recall of both multiplication and division facts within 6 seconds. Therefore it is important that children are able to recall multiplication and division facts up to 12 x by the time they enter Upper Key Stage 2.
The National Curriculum specifies that pupils should be taught to recall the multiplication tables up to and including 12 × 12 by the end of year 4.
We are trying different ways in school to practise times tables but in order for the children to be able to recall them rapidly they need to be practising them at home too.
Please check your children's Times Table Challenge tracker in the front of their diary to see which tables they are on next in the challenge.
