TTRS - this is a great support for learning times tables. In Y4, we are now working on improving our speed of answering times table questions. All the children have been given their heatmap to take home - we are all aiming for a green map!

Play the GARAGE game and improve on your speed to try get your heatmap all green - like the one below. 
Which times table facts are you slower on? Let's work on them. 

Look at these fantastic, interactive times table games that our pupils have made at home - very impressive!


Maths Outdoor Learning - measuring the perimeters of puddles! We also linked in our science knowledge to discuss why puddles seem to disappear (evaporation)!

The children used string to measure the puddles, then placed the string against rulers. 
Afterwards, the children shared their results - 1.98m, 123cm, 51cm, 3 ¼m. 
We had lots of discussions about converting measurements and even included some fraction knowledge!
Well done Y4 - it was fun applying our learning outside - in the rain!
