Times Tables Challenge.
The Challenge works on a series of 28 levels, each to be tested in a 3 minute weekly written test. The levels become increasingly difficult in terms of both the number of different tables covered and the speed at which you must work! The levels are shown in the table below.
You will need achieve full marks twice before you move to the next level.

|13||All tables to 12×12||60||x|

The children will continue to learn maths through the mastery approach. We will continue to improve fluency, develop problem solving and reasoning within a range of contexts including measure.
Learning Journey Knowledge and Skills
In science the children will be learning all about different effects of air resistance, up-thrust and gravity through practical investigations and problems.
The children will also explore the scientific relationships between the Earth, sun and Moon and the effects they have on our lives.
As the term progresses the children will learn about plant life processes such as growth, photosynthesis, pollination and seed dispersal. The children will also be finding out about life processes related to humans.
As well as this the children will be looking at the links between plants and animals in food webs and food chains.
Once a week, Hampshire Music Service will be teaching the children how to play the clarinet. At the end of term the children will be performing what they have learnt in a mini concert.
Painting skills – watercolours and land/seascapes
Embroidery techniques and applying this to a piece of applique based on the plant still life.
Filming using the Green screen
The children will be taking part in Kwik Cricket and Rounders (outdoor); circuit training to improve general fitness (indoor). Year 4 children will take part in swimming lessons once a week.
Exploring the concept of stewardship – creation stories within different religions and cultures
Looking after the world
Transition and Managing Change
It’s my body
How you can help at home
Children will continue to be set weekly Mathletics and Spellodrome homework as well as pages from their Spelling Punctuation and Grammar books. ALL children are expected to read daily and to continue to learn and practise their times tables. As always we thank you for your continued support with this.
