Autumn (2)

Times-tables - and time!

We focus on learning our times-tables during the Autumn term, to prepare us for the challenge of Multiplication (which comes up before Christmas), Division and Fractions (which we explore next term).

A secure knowledge of times-tables combined with speedy recall is a REALLY important skill.

In Year 4, we practise two different methods for multiplication - we start with the familiar 'Grid Method', and then learn how to condense this into the 'Standard Method' for short multiplication.

 

We also need to be able to tell the time - using both the 12-hour and 24-hour clock, and coping with digital and analogue clocks. 

Here are some great links to time-telling activities:
