Attendance

Whole School Attendance

The schools total attendance is currently at:

91.1% (Since September 2020)

Numeracy

Two main challenges today:

 

1. Division

2. Competition

 

The competition is between the three classes on TT Rockstars.

 

It starts at 12 noon today and finishes on Friday.

 

Daily times are:

 

8.45am - 6.00pm

 

Please help your class to do well.

Monday 25th January

 

This week we are going to learn an important skill

which will teach us how to solve

division problems in Year 4.

 

Work through this video

and see how many of the six steps

you can teach to someone in your family.

Year 4 Maths Revision: Division

What is the Q word?
When is the answer 0?
What comes after 10 and 5?

Which of these divisions can you do now?

 

Please send us your answers.

 

Easier:     65 divided by 5

 

Medium:    126 divided by 3

 

Harder:   377 divided by 13

Area

 

This week we are going to learn how to calculate the area of a 2D shape.  The area is the amount of space inside a shape.

Friday 22nd January

 

No video to watch today Year 4.  We are going straight to measuring area.  If you can’t remember how to calculate the area, you can always watch yesterdays video again. 

 

REMEMBER:  The measurement of area is measured in squares, so we write cm² after

                the answer.  E.g. 12cm²

 

After that, you have 8 revision multiplication questions using the grid method, which will gradually get more difficult.  If you can’t remember how to use the grid method, scroll down to last week’s work.  As usual, the answers will be provided for you to check your answers after.

 

You can also use TTRS to practice your times tables and play Hit The Button.

Grid method questions

 

a)  32  x  4  =                                             e)   351  x  3  = 
 
 
b)  65  x  2  =                                              f)    239   x   5  =
 

 

c)  33  x  12  =                                           g)   561  x   21   =
 
 
       d)    58  x  20  =                                           h)   182  x  152 

Thursday 21st January

 

Today we will be comparing areas.  Can you remember the symbol that we can use to compare?

 

Do these symbols look familiar?  < and >

     <  less than         >  more than/greater than

 

You will be using these symbols to answer some of today's questions. 

 

Watch the video below.  This will show you how to compare the area of shapes.  The second half of the video will show you how to order the shapes according to the area and finding the difference between the smallest and largest area.

 

Can you remember how to find the difference?  To find the difference, we subtract the smaller number from the larger number.   E.g. What is the difference between  4 and 9?

To find the answer we would subtract.  So 9 - 4 = 5.  The difference is 5.

 

If you want to practice finding the difference, click on the word document.  The answers are provided for you.

Here are the worksheets that go with the video.  You can check your answers after you have completed the work.

Wednesday 20th January

 

Today we are focussing on how to make different shapes with the same area.  You will come across the word RECTILINEAR which means 'moving to make straight line'.  Listen to the video and pause at 3:55 to answer questions 1 to 4.  The second part demonstrates how to change a shape to make it a square.  Pause the video at 4:55 to answer questions 5 to 8.  The remaining part of the video explains how to make rectilinear shapes, then answer the last question.

Spr4.4.3 - Making shapes

Remember to log on to 'times table rockstars' to practice your multiplications.

Tuesday 19th January

 

Today we are going to continuing with finding the area by counting squares.  Listen to the next set of explanations and instructions on the video below.  Pause the video at 4:20 minutes then answer questions 1 to 4.  The second half of the video show you another method of calulating the area.  After watching the second part, answer questions 5 to 8. 

 

Are you ready Year 4? 

Spr4.4.2 - Counting squares

 Have a go at this emoji code breaker.

Each image represents a number.

For example:

               smileysad   smileysmiley

                               2  1   +    2  2  = 43

 

      

Monday 18th January

 

This week we are going to learn how to calculate the area of a 2D shape.  The area is the amount of space inside a shape.

 

Watch the video below.  It will help you to understand what area is.  After you have watched the video, click on the word document to access the worksheet.  One of the worksheets is easier.  The answers are provided for you to check your answers after you have completed the worksheet.

Here are some questions where we multiply

a two-digit number by another two-digit number. 

 

Check you understand this first. You'll need it

when you multiply the two numbers in the tens columns.

 

2 x 2 = 4

20 x 2 is ten times bigger = 40

20 x 20 is ten times bigger AGAIN = 400

 

Here's a video to remind you how to multiply by multiples of ten.

This week for our Numeracy work

we are going to focus on multiplication.

 

In Year 4, we use GRID MULTIPLICATION.

 

Today's challenge is to see if you remember

the six steps on this video.

If you can teach someone in your family about the six steps,

that would really show that you understand.

Can you teach someone?
