Maths is big part of Year 4 and will be taught for an hour each day. The focus for maths lessons will be fluency – learning and practicing new skills, reasoning and problem solving – applying the skills to solve real life situations and problems. We will start by looking at number and place value and move to addition and subtraction, working with money and then develop our multiplication and division knowledge.
Children in year 4 are expected to know the multiplication facts up to and including
12 x12 and the related division facts. It is important that they know the facts off by heart as this will help them with more complex mental calculations.
From September, children will practise the following basic number and counting skills. They need to know them by heart and be able to apply them to their maths work. Children need to practise these facts at home to reinforce learning from school to help them become fluent.
Count in multiples of 6,7,9,25 and 1000
Count backwards through zero to include negative numbers
Round numbers to the nearest 10, 100, 1000
Know all multiplication facts to 12x12
Count up and down in 1/5, 1/100’s
Know factor pairs for known multiplication facts.
Pairs of fractions that total 1 (with the same denominator)
Decimal compliments to 1 (1 dp, for example, 0.3 + 0.7)
Fraction/decimal equivalents of one half, quarters, tenths and hundredths (eg 0.3 = 3/10, 3/100 = 0.03).
Revise doubles of multiples of 10 and 100 and corresponding halves.
Know what number must be added to any 3 digit number to make the next multiple of 10 0( eg, 345 + 55 = 400)
Below are the national curriculum objectives we will be covering this year. Our focus for Spring term 1 will be Measurement and Multiplication and Division.
