Durham Cathedral Service for Years 4 and 5
As part of the 50th anniversary of the Christingle, children from Years 4 and 5 in our school have been invited to attend a special celebration service in Durham Cathedral on Wednesday 30th January 2019. There will be about 1,000 children from all over the North East attending the event. For more information click on the link.
As you may be aware, as part of the Year 4 Maths curriculum, all children in Year 4 are expected to know, by heart, all the Times Table facts up to 12×12.
From June 2020, all Year 4 children nationally will take part in an online Times Table Assessment. In preparation for this, we are taking part in a pilot for this assessment and this will take place with our current Year 4 children in June 2019. The test will be done online, in test conditions, with a 6-second gap to answer each question. We do not know which questions will be asked, so children need to know all multiplication facts confidently.
In our maths lessons since September, we have been learning and practising all our times table facts from 1×1 up to 12×12. To help with their learning in this specific area, there are a number of websites which you can help your child learn their times tables:
Times Tables (your child has already set up an account for this site where they get awards and certificates)
… and many others! For additional online games and other sites, just Google Times Tables.
