Last half term, we were exploring the formal methods of multiplication and division. We were concentrating on larger numbers and problem solving questions which will ensure that the children's brains are being stretched to their full capacity.
We will be continuing division and multiplication next half term as it is weighted very highly on the Year 4 curriculum. We will also apply our multiplication skills to finding the area of shapes by multiplying the width by the length.
We will use this opportunity to practise our times table and division facts. Year 4 children need to know all their times tables and division facts by the end of the year. Please spend time practising times tables with your children at home.
