The latest news from Year 4
We have had a great first few weeks back and have been really lucky with the weather.
The class have been practising their ball skills and getting fitter with some circuit training.
Maths - Column addition and subtraction
The class have been using place value counters to really understand how these strategies work. It is all about the exchange. The calculation must always start from the right hand side. At each stage, you must check to see if an exchange is needed. Careful calculating is needed to either add or subtract the two values before moving onto the next place.

All the children have logins to access their Google accounts. It is really important that you check with your child that they are able to do this from home. They all know their passwords as they should be saved on their Google accounts.
They can then access Google Classroom, Mathletics, Edshed, Code.org and TTRockstars.
If there are any problems with this, please let me know.
Some homework will be set on Google Classroom.
We have had a great first week learning all about patterns in maths, that will help with our timestables.
