Well done to everyone who has regularly been visiting Times Table Rock Stars over the last couple of weeks. Year 4 have done fantastically well and we have started to see a real difference. We have even had some children lead the whole school in the time it takes to answer questions on TTRS.

This week, we are going to be focusing on everything ‘7’. The test next week will involve all four operations.

E.g.    7 x 4         35 – 7                42 + 7               28 ÷ 7

So make sure you focus on everything ‘7’ over the week.

Spellings and grammar

This week, we have again been looking at apostrophes. We worked out that apostrophes can show possession (Ben’s disobedient dog galloped across the field chasing pigeons). We have also learned that when we are talking about something belonging to more than one noun it is known as plural possession (the boys’ coats were spread all over the floor).

You are to read the following passage and include apostrophes to show when there is singular possession and plural possession.

On Sunday, Anthony went over to Jonhs house to play basketball. They

played a game of one-on-one. At the end of the game, Anthonys score was

six, but Johns score was eight. The hoops nets were both worn out and the boys feet were both aching by the end of the game. John was the winner. After the game, the boys went inside to have some snacks and watch television. They played with Johns new puppies. The puppyies names are Fido and Parker. Fidos ears are long and floppy and he is very calm natured, whereas Parkers tail wags non-stop! The boys had a great day. Johns mum is going to ask Anthonys mum if Anthony can come over again next weekend.

 

You will also be tested on the 5 spellings that have been added to your envelope this week.

 

Maths

Times Table Rockstars time. This week we would like you all to get a ‘base score’ for the time it takes you to answer your questions. This only happens when you have visited the ‘studio’ section 10 times. Some of you are there already so you can work on improving that time!

This week, we have been looking at apostrophes. We worked out that apostrophes can show possession (Ben’s disobedient dog galloped across the field chasing pigeons) and omitted letters (was not – wasn’t).

You are to read the following passage and include apostrophes where required to show possession and omitted letters.

When I arrived at my school this morning, I couldnt believe my eyes! There were only 11 boys and 8 girls in the classroom. Theyll be really bored with what I have planned, I thought. I shouldve organised something different for them to do. They wouldnt enjoy what Id set for them. Suddenly, I had a brainwave. Ill get them to write a paragraph with lots of missing apostrophes. Like the one youre reading now. Theyd love that. Theres nothing more exciting than writing a paragraph with missing apostrophe’s. WOW! Its the best thing EVER! They wont want to miss out on this! My thought was broken by the phone ringing. It was Mr. Benson. “Are you missing lots of children?” he asked?

“I am indeed – do you have any idea where they all are?” I replied.

“Well, Sarahs mum called to say she was poorly; Jakes dad said he had a bug; Lukes dad said he has the flu; Chloes mum said they had to turn the car round on the way to school as she nearly threw up and we havnt heard from James mum. There must be something going around!”.

 

Maths

This week, we are looking at the multiplication facts for the 6 times table. A range of questions will be tested on Monday involving multiplying and dividing by 6. Here are some questions for you to practise in preparation. Can you answer them all in 1 minute?
