  • Flotsam
  • Heart in a bottle

We will be studying the Vikings.

Maths

Year three and four are taught Maths no problem which is based on the Singapore methods of teaching. This provides all children the opportunity to make progress and the use of ‘Same Day Intervention’ means children get additional input for those skills they have found challenging that day.

Children develop understanding of number and calculation methods as well as having daily ‘Maths Meetings’ at the end of Maths sessions to practise and apply their skills.

At the end of year four children are expected to know their x tables up to 12 x 12.
