Year 4

This week, we will be looking at multiplication with a particular focus on the formal written methods of 2 digit numbers multiplied by 1 digit numbers. We will begin looking at both the long and short methods for multiplication.
This week, we will be starting to look closely at the features of an explanation text linking with our Topic theme of Rivers. The children will begin by identifying them and then beginning to use them in their own writing towards the end of the week.

In topic this week, we will become TV presenters. The children will plan and present their own factual television clip based around the journey of a river. The children will be presenting the key features of a river to the rest of the class at the end of this week.
