27.4.20 - Has anyone tried the isee- Gareth Metcalfe lesson this morning? Describe, Visualise and Draw.
I did! It was a good bit of fun after the White Rose lesson on rounding decimals. Great for practising shape and especially good for working on listening and giving instructions. You could face time a friend and read out the instructions for one of the shapes and see what they draw! Email me your results!
How did you get on with the new Maths Challenge today (24.4.20)?
This is our working out! We found there were quite a few steps we had to work out to find the answers. I thought challenge 3 was the trickiest. We knew that one number had to be 800 and the other 500 hundred, because that would give us a difference of 300. The number had to be greater than 300 and less than 400. We then placed the other digits to make a 3 digit number. We tried a couple of other numbers but they only made a difference in the two hundreds. Did you find any other numbers that worked? Challenge 4 - Did you remember what perimeter means? The clue to the answer was the words 'identical rectangles'. A mistake my daughter made was to try and measure the rectangle. We had a discussion about the rectangle being drawn on paper being a different size to the one on the screen or sheet. This led us to talk about shapes not being drawn to scale. Hope you enjoyed doing these as much as us. It was a nice change from the video lessons. Now it's times tables!
21.4.20 - Today's lesson on White Rose is writing decimals (yesterday the video didn't work as there were so many people trying to access it - they have resolved this today). I have just completed this with my daughter and we found it useful to use a hundredths and tenths grid. I put it in a plastic wallet and she used a whiteboard pen to shade in the fractions. Even having the picture in front of you may help. I have attached a copy of one for you.
Do not feel you have to complete all the tasks on the two sheets. I would recommend completing the first sheet and anything else you manage is a bonus!
HOME LEARNING WK/B: 20.4.20 - Welcome back and I hope you had a lovely Easter break. How many of you saw the video of the staff dressed up, wishing you a Happy Easter? We had great fun making it!
Have you all eaten lots of chocolate eggs? I was lucky this year and had two! A Heroes egg and my favourite; Smarties Orange - from my family which was a lovely surprise.
Now you have had a break, I think you will all be ready to get back into a routine of learning. I know my children need to, as it gives them a focus each morning.
I have put together some daily tasks for this week. Click on the PDF below.
Try out some of these fun Easter activities this week
HOME LEARNING - I am sending the children home with a pack of activities that they can do at home during this difficult time. Below is a list of useful websites that you can also access for games and activities. I am not dictating how much you need to complete, as every household situation is different and I do not wish to cause undue stress at this time.
https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/ a great resources and we use this to plan our maths at school. It contains video lessons and a worksheet. Tip - Complete the lessons in order.
https://www.mymaths.co.uk/ I have set the children various tasks to complete and will keep it updated with new ones on a weekly basis. The children should have their passwords in their reading journals. If not please email me and I can send it to you.

Welcome to Year 4 Maths
I am looking forward to teaching you maths this year. This page will contain information about weekly homework tasks and photographs of the work we have been doing in class.
Please remember to bring your times table holiday homework into class on Monday!
Homework will be given out every Friday and will be due in the following Thursday. The homework will be a mixture of mymaths, worksheets and tasks or small projects. Homework will be aimed at the level your child is working at and will continue on from the learning in class. There will be a large emphasis given to the learning of times tables. Children are expected to complete the homework independently but may need a little support or encouragement at times.
All children are expected to complete homework on time. If they do not, then they will lose part of their lunch break on Friday to complete the task (under exceptional circumstances they may be given extra time).

27.09.19 - Homework this week is a creative maths task! See a copy of the letter below that should of come home today with a piece of paper to do it on. Who can be the most creative with their hands?
Homework Wk/ending 08.11.19 - We have been learning mental methods for addition and subtraction this week. Children are to complete the worksheet, using a mental method of their choice. They can draw a number line or jottings for their preferred method on the sheet. Can they explain why they chose the method, for one or two of the calculations?
Some children were given times table homework on a sheet to complete instead of the above.
Homework week ending 07.02.20 - Reading and interpreting graphs worksheet.
Home work for over half term will be to practise times tables on the PIXL app or using the mathsframe times tables simulator test. The website link is at the top of this maths page.
Homework week ending 13.3.20- Please visit this website daily for 5 minutes to practise your tables for speed! You can adjust the difficulty. Please choose the tables you need to practise (based on your weekly x grid results) for the majority 7,8,9x tables! Remember we are aiming for 25 correct answers in 6 seconds. How much can you improve your score each day?
I have been very impressed with homework results 99% completed last week. Well done everyone-a class reward coming your way!
