November 2022

The Y4 team held a MTC information workshop for parents. The presentation is at the bottom of this page. The workshop was well supported and some positive feedback received:

It helped a lot – got new methods and how to make children remember them. Thank you very much for your valuable time.

I am very happy for the meeting.

Thank you for the information, it is very helpful.

It was very useful, thank you.

A good explanation and we will help our children to do times tables.

Thank you so much. The talk by both teachers was very beneficial and informative. We felt very at home and shows the teachers care for our children. We learnt a lot too. It encouraged us to do more for our child. Think having input from school is very helpful with both parents and school. Would love to have more meetings in the future (maybe monthly).

Today’s morning session was extremely useful and informative. I am fully aware on how to support my child at home using tools and platforms and what is expected from me as a parent and my child.

I am Bangladeshi and lived here for 3 years. I do not know how to teach English or maths to my child. So I need your help. Thank you.

Year 4 have started their understanding of Place Value by using concrete objects to secure their understanding.

Times Tables Rockstars TTRS

Times Tables Rockstars (TTRS) is an online platform which supports the learning of times tables. It is a national expectation that children know all their multiplication and associated division facts by the end of Year 4. All children have log in details so they can access the site both at home and at school.

There are weekly Times Table Rockstar battles between classes and the annual TTRS cup final was won in July 2022 by 4AG who beat 6SK in a thrilling live final.
