Maths - Autumn Term 1
Throughout the first term of Year 4, both classes are going to be focusing on their place value skills and looking at different strategies they could use when solving addition and subtraction questions.
In the first week, we looked at the value of every digit in a number. The children used fantastic mathematical vocabulary such as ones, tens, hundreds, thousands and even ten thousands! In both classes, we focused on learning how to use a place value chart to help us determine the value of the digit.
In the second week, we moved onto rounding numbers to the nearest ten, hundred and thousand. We learnt a fantastic song which helps us remember how to round numbers and this helped us complete the homework for that week.
In the last two weeks, 4G and 4C have been working on using different strategies to add and subtract four digits by four digits. We began with using regrouping and have recently moved onto using the column method - some of us have even been able to solve questions which have missing numbers!
For the next few weeks we are going to be working on our times tables knowledge and learning multiples!
