Documents to help with Maths principles and times tables for the new year 4 multiplication test.
Support with written methods and NCETM calculation guidance:
The first document shows how an understanding of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division can be built up over time. The NCETM document may be more useful to gain a deeper understanding of the reasoning and problem-solving aspects of the Maths syllabus.
White Rose schemes of work
Schemes of work for Maths as suggested by the White Rose Maths Hub. These versions were released for 2016/17 and can be used to revisit or support work done in school. I have included the mixed schemes for Y3/4 and Y4/5 in case there are areas which you wish to revise. Note: we do not follow the suggested timetable exactly!
