During these times of negative news let's think positive! Watch the video below and think about the words of the song. Although we don't always stop to think about it, our world is wonderful. Can you think of three things that you are grateful for this week about our wonderful world?
I would love to hear about them on our Teams meeting this week!
SPRING TERM HOMEWORK GRIDS
I had already put the grids for the Spring term on our class web page in preparation for a new topic and term. It seems a shame for these to go to waste so for those of you who liked using them and enjoyed working on either topic projects or on-going skills please use them. I will put the grids below but to access the resources you will need to go to the Year 4 class page. This can be found by clicking on class pages on the tree of the school home page. If you click on Year 4 you will see a yellow star named SPRING TERM HOMEWORK. You will find any resources or links you need there. Please understand these tasks are not compulsory, they are just there if you want to dip into them.
Mrs Thursby's Introduction to the 9 Times Table!
This is a video of the very successful method I use in the classroom for introducing brand new learning. The children have used this method for the 6 and 7 times table and had fantastic success. Please use the video to introduce them to the 9's. It is a method designed for lots of repetition. Try it whenever you have a spare 5 minutes. Keep practising and the results will speak for themselves!
The children love this method and after lots of practise might feel confident to lead the counting stick session themselves. If anyone wants to have a go when they are feeling confident, just send me a video.
Happy tables chanting!
Videos to help with the 9 times table!
Try some of these! They might just help you learn your 9's. Have fun!
