Steps For Editing Homework


1)
Select the desired Word document display box, underneath the relevant heading (if there is no document selected the box will only appear when hovered over)

2) On the left hand side of the screen, upload the relevant document (Make sure this has first been uploaded into Media)

3) This will now display the correct Word document within the box

How To Hide A Section:

1) If you wish to not display a particular set of homework (for example: no literacy homework this week), hover over the section and click the grey box, at the top left corner, which says “Edit Container” (this can also be found within the navigator on the right hand side of the screen)

2) Now select Advanced, on the left hand side of the screen, then scroll down and select the Responsive dropdown, then finally, turn all three switches on to hide the container. (You will know this has worked if the section turns grey with faint lines showing over the top)

3) To re-show the section again, repeat the previous steps but turn the switches off

St Teresa Forest School

Where in the World

One child each week from each class is invited to find out about a country of their choice: see guidance here

PE days for Year 4 - Mondays and Wednesdays

Focus will be on CREATIVITY and small-side games.

Please note: when classes are doing Forest School, they will not have Monday PE (St Teresa before half term; St Bernadette after half term). 

Times Tables

Times tables are vital to mathematical progress. Knowing your times tables will help you with long multiplication, division, fractions and much more! In June of Year 4, all children will be taking The Government Times Tables Check and therefore need to know their 2-12 times tables fluently.

Strategies to help your child learn their times tables:

Chanting: this could be done on the way to and from school, in the car, running up and down the stairs or at the dinner table! Choose a times table and chant the multiples. Can you see how fast you can chant them? You could even try them backwards.

Create rhymes: create rhymes to remember ‘trickier’ times table facts such as, ‘7×7 is like a rhyme, it adds up to 49, 7×7 is 49.’

DOUBLE, DOUBLE: a quick trick for learning the 4x is just to double-double. Double the number and then double it again.

TRICKY SIXES: 6 times tables can be tricky to learn. One helpful trick is that in the 6 times table, when you multiply a 6 by an even number they both end in the same digit.

Online games to play:

Times table rock star:

This should be played at home on a computer, tablet or phone. The app is available to download from the App Store and the Google Play store. We recommend ‘little and often’ practice. Your child should aim for between 5-10 minutes’ practice daily.

Jamming:

The only game mode without a timer, players choose the table and operation (× or ÷ or both) they want to practice. Answer 10, 20 or 30 questions.

Gig:

Gig games last 5 minutes and contain up to 100 questions, which come in ‘waves’, starting with the 10s, then the 2s, 5s, 3s, 4s, 8s, 6s, 7s, 9s, 11s and 12s.

Garage:

Players are given a personalised set of 6 multiplication questions (and their matching division questions) in each round. The questions they get keep adjusting to provide the best fit for every learner’s needs. This is probably the best game made for improving their recall while they’re still learning.

Studio:

Here your child earns their Rock Status, which is based on their Studio Speed. The faster they are the better their status. Studio Speed is the average of their most recent 10 Studio games. Suitable for confident players.

Soundcheck:

Soundcheck games ask 25 multiplication questions (up to 12×12), allowing 6 seconds for each question. Suitable for confident players.

Times tables and spelling practice

Pupils will be tested on their weekly spelling words every Friday. Please make sure you are learning your spellings and focusing on the relevant spelling focus/rule for each week. 

Children practise their times tables every day at school. To support this, please go over these as much as possible at home.
