We created our very own Bronze Age Celtic pinch pots in Art and Design.
In Phase 1, all children will be learning their times tables. It is a national requirement that all children know their times tables by the end of Year 4. Year 4s will now have a national test in June where they will be tested on their times table knowledge.
The children will be working their way through each times table in order to reach ‘Reasoning Rainbow’ where they will be able to apply their times table knowledge to word problems. The times table tests are ordered as follows:
- Bronze: 2s, 5s, 10s, Mixed
- Silver: 3s, 6s, Mixed
- Gold: 4s, 8s, Mixed
- Platinum: 7s, 9s, Mixed
- Diamond: 11s, 12s, Mixed
- Elite: All Mixed
- Reasoning Rainbow
Each week the children will have a 2 minute timed test on the times table they are on, they must answer all questions correctly in order to move up to the next times table the following week. The tests include both multiplication and division to ensure they full consolidate their times table (e.g. 3x6=18 and 18÷3=6). Once they have passed each times table test on each stage they will receive a certificate for their achievements.
Please do support your children in practising their times tables at home. Here are some links which will support you with this.
