Key Information

  • PE day is now on THURSDAY. We have gymnastics so please wear a plain white/purple t-shirt and black shorts.
  • Spelling and maths homework go out every Friday, due back on the following Thursday.
  • Reading journals - we aim to fill these in daily. 10 minutes will be given each morning (Mon-Thurs) to continue write about what they have read the night before. The Year 4 expectation is a minimum of three entries each week.




These are the methods we use for each operation:

Addition (partitioning or column methods)



Subtraction (bridging the gap or column methods)


e.g. 682-35 children need to:

  • draw an empty number line
  • write the numbers at either end
  • calculate the jump to the next hundred
  • calculate the jump to the largest number
  • add the jumps together


Multiplication (smile - when multiplying by a multiple of ten)


(grid or column methods when multiplying a 2 digit number)




Division (using table facts or 'bus stop' method)
