We love Times Tables Rock Stars in Year 4. Every child has a username and password for the website and they practice every week in class. It is a fantastic way to have fun, earn coins to spend on their avatar, and to practice their multiplication tables ahead of their Year 4 Multiplication Test in 2021. Every week we will set a challenge on TTRS to be completed by the start of the next week. Simply click on the link and ask your child to show you how it works!
In Autumn Term this year we are studying The Romans! How exciting! There are lots of wonderful websites and videos online to support your child's' learning. None more absurd, informative and entertaining that the Horrible Histories series. Here is a compilation of clips from their hilarious 'Rotten Romans' movie to whet your appetite.
More information about The Romans designed for children. A great way to support your child's learning in our current History topic. Enjoy!
In Year 4 we will be using Purple Mash a lot! We use in class for our ICT lessons and we will be setting our weekly homework on it. So children will become very familiar with how it works. It is a wonderful tool to set and check work, communicate with our students if they get stuck, and to display any updates, hints or tips. Your children will be able to show you what it is all about, but just in case you're unsure on what Purple Mash can do, here is a short video we made during school closure showing the key areas to look at.
