At the start of the new academic year, Langdale adopted a new approach to a Maths cycle in each class. The idea of this cycle is to enhance pupil engagement and make good progress in all of the different areas of maths. We begin each units with a prior learning lesson to see what skills children are equipped with and then the following lessons are used to teach, develop and embed new skills!
Over the Spring term, we will be covering:
-Exploring time and money
-Exploring fractions, decimals and percentages
-Calculating fractions, decimals and percentages
By now, children in Year 4 should have a good grasp of times tables and hopefully will be practising times tables on a daiy basis. In Year 4, we believe that using the inverse skill is also a great method to help us remeber our times table facts. Our inverse skills are noted through division facts.
e.g. 9 x 4 = 36 36 / 4 = 9
Children should be practising these skills at home just as much as they are practising and improving their times tables skills!
