Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check June 2022

The multiplication assessment for children in Year 4 is due to take place this year between Monday 6th June and Friday 24th June.

 

I have attached all of the information to this newsletter for you. PLEASE do not feel that any additional work needs to be done at home with your child – this is an assessment to gain an understanding of how fluent your child is with their multiplications. It is important that we get a clear picture of this so that specific, targeted work can take place in Year 5 and 6.

 

In class we will be working on the following website so that the children are able to practise the timed element of the assessment:

New spellings will be given out each Friday and tested the following Friday. Children will bring home their scores and a list of any words they may have found tricky.

PE - Summer Term First Half

Monday afternoon (Oldham Sports Team)

  • Cricket and rounders

Friday afternoon (Miss Olivia)

  • Dance

Please make sure your child comes to school on PE days wearing their kit. You will receive a text if your child is not wearing the correct kit in school on the day of a lesson.

Snacks

In Key Stage 2, children are allowed to bring in their own fruit or vegetable snack to eat at playtime.  Snacks should be fruit or vegetables – this does not include snacks containing fruit e.g. cereal bars.  School does not provide milk but this can be purchased each half-term via arrangement with the school office.

Wider Opportunities in Music

We are extremely excited that the children in Year 4 are able to participate in brass lessons as part of our wider opportunities program. Mr Haslam will be coming into school each Friday 10:45-11:45 and teach the children how to play various brass instruments. School will provide the instruments so there is no need for the children to bring anything in.

I will be sure to keep you updated of their progress!
