A fantastic selection of worksheets has just been published for Year 4 covering:
• Finding the value of digits in numbers up to 4-digits
• Rounding to the nearest 10, including using Roman numerals
• Rounding to the nearest 100
• Ordering numbers
• Counting in thousands, hundreds, tens and ones
• Roman numerals up to 100
These are all bang up-to-date and many are ideal for the maths mastery programme (more on this below). My favourites are the ordering numbers worksheets using data from the lists of famous events and the birthdates of famous people.
We have also reorganised our Year 4 Number resources into sub-categories which we are sure will make it much easier to find the exact pages that you want. These sub-categories follow the strands of the National Curriculum.
Maths Mastery Support Materials
Exciting news if you are a teacher in Year 4 looking for material to support the maths mastery programme in your school.
Great news for parents with children in Year 4 who are being taught using the maths mastery programme and are not sure how best to help.
Beginning with the Autumn Term Blocks 1, 2 and 3, we have selected sets of worksheets from our extensive range which are ideal for use with a typical maths mastery programme.
Block 1 has resources for Number and Place Value including rounding numbers, counting on and back in 25s and 1 000s, ordering and comparing numbers up to thousands, negative numbers and Roman numerals. This is a 4 week block and there is plenty to pack in.
Block 2 has resources for Addition and Subtraction. Children will be expected to add and subtract two 4-digit numbers, including using the formal written method. Estimating answers and word problems are also important.
This should take most schools through to half term but we have also included resources for Block 3: Measuring Length and Perimeter. This includes calculating the perimeter of rectilinear figures, including squares. Converting between different units such as kilometres to metres is another aspect of this block of work.
Keep an eye out for the rest of the term’s resources which will be ready in a few weeks’ time.
Our resources have been designed to work alongside the mastery planning, providing extra resources and support. They are not a scheme of work in themselves. Each term is divided into blocks of work so that children concentrate on one block of content for a considerable length of time until a secure understanding has been achieved.
For a teacher these are also superb resources to use with the children in your class who need a little extra help.
For a parent, we recommend doing the pages more or less in the order they appear, one page from each set. If this is completed well, with no problems, there is no reason to do more, unless, of course, your child really wants to.
If difficulties occur, we recommend trying at least one or two more out of the set, and there will be other similar sets that can also be used, taken from our main categories.
We cannot guarantee that the order we progress through the term will be the same as that of a particular school, but we are following similar blocks of work as used in many schools across the country.
Also, please note that these are support materials and cannot replace the work done in school through mastery programmes, mathshubs etc. For parents we feel one page a day, for 5 days a week, is ample without overloading your child.
Of course, if you are not following a maths mastery programme these are still great resources for your children.
