Just a quick reminder that there is no expectation to complete the White Rose Maths lessons on Seesaw and your normally daily maths lessons from I see maths or BBC bitesize. One maths lesson per day is enough.

The White Rose Maths resources are guidence and examples of the maths objectives posted last week. Please do not feel pressured or stressed about completing them. They are available if you want to use them.

Take care

White Rose Maths Resources

Following on from my previous posts reference outstanding maths objectives for home learning the White Rose Maths Team has prepared a series of maths lessons. They will be adding five more each week for the next few weeks. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully.

Please ask the children to log onto Seesaw and complete the maths lessons highlighted.

The link below will take you to the White Rose Maths home page where you will find more details and be able to access all of their home learning resources.

Year 4 Maths objectives

Good afternoon,

Below are a number of year four objectives that we are yet to cover taken from the national curriculum for maths.

Please do not feel any pressure to cover or complete all of the objectives. All objectives will be covered in depth ensuring our children do not have any gaps in their understanding. As I mentioned yesterday this will be new learning to some. BBC bitesize and I see maths are an excellent reference point to understand the objectives below. In addition to this, I will also post examples of each objective on Seesaw.

You can find more information by following the link to the national curriculum below.

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-in-england-mathematics-programmes-of-study/national-curriculum-in-england-mathematics-programmes-of-study

  • recognise and write decimal equivalents of any number of tenths or hundreds
  • recognise and write decimal equivalents to 1/4 1/2 3/4
  • find the effect of dividing a one- or two-digit number by 10 and 100, identifying the value of the digits in the answer as ones, tenths and hundredths
  • round decimals with 1 decimal place to the nearest whole number
  • compare numbers with the same number of decimal places up to 2 decimal places
  • solve simple measure and money problems involving fractions and decimals to 2 decimal place

Home learning resources

Good morning Year 4

We hope you are all safe and well.

I am going to post a list of National Curriculum objectives that have yet to be covered in year 4. This will be new learning to lots of them.

When introduced to new learning, it is important that all children are given an opportunity to understand the concept before answering any questions.

  • What are they learning about?
  • Why do they need to know this?
  • When will they use this in a real life context?
  • How do they do it?
  • Practice, practice, practice.

To continue to help and support you we would like to highlight the BBC Bitesize resources. There are a series of tutorials and videos to develop and support key National Curriculum concepts, as well as suggested follow on tasks to help secure long term understanding.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/subjects/z826n39

You can continue to find excellent lessons and resources at: http://www.iseemaths.com/home-lessons/

I will continue to set tasks and activities on My Maths but it will be difficult for children to complete the questions without some understanding of the concept beforehand.

I would recommend that you use the BBC bitesize or I See Maths lesson resources to begin with and My Maths tasks as part of the practice phase.

I hope you all find this helpful.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or require more support.

Take care
