Homework Instructions

The homework focus this term is on reading, spellings and times tables, so please practise these every week. You will have one piece of topic homework to complete before the end of the term. This piece of work will be put on display, so we expect this work to be neatly presented. Thank you.

Multiplication Tables

By the end of year 4, you are expected to be able to recall multiplication and division facts up to 12×12. Therefore, it is important for you to practise your times tables as often as you can and in a random order. We recommend that you start with the 2, 5, 10 and 11 times tables before moving on to the 3, 4, 6 and 8’s. Once you are confident, you can move onto the 7, 9 and 12 times table. You can also look at the patterns between the 3 and 6 multiplications as well as the 4 and 8’s as this may help you to remember them.
