As in previous years, we will be using the White Rose Maths Mastery approach to teaching maths. In the first half of autumn term, we will help children to recall their prior maths learning with a focus on addition and then subtraction. Children will learn different methods for adding and subtracting with 2 and 3 digit numbers and apply these to problem solving and reasoning questions. Content for this unit is very similar for year 3 and year 4 and children will be encouraged to secure their skills before they move on to using larger numbers and solving more complex problems.
At St Edmundsbury, we use TT Rock Stars to practice times tables and this can be accessed at home with your username and password. Tables will be tested each week to see how you are all getting on and to help you to keep making progress with these. Children have been provided with their log-in details to bring home. Please let us know if you are having any problems accessing the site.
For your information this is the National Curriculum expectation for times tables.
Y2 - recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables, including recognising odd and even numbers
Y3 - recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables
Y4 - recall multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 × 12 (6x, 7x, 9x, 11x then 12x)
All Y4 children will participate in the national Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) - an on-line test which tests their recall of multiplication and division facts for all tables up to and including 12x. They have 6 seconds to answer each question, and this is how we conduct our weekly checks. The tests will be completed between 5th and 16th June.
Children can practise the test using
