The key focus of mathematics in Year 4 is to ensure your child is confident and increasingly fluent working with place value, developing their understanding of our number system using decimals, and with the four operations + – x ÷. They will calculate mentally and continue to develop efficient written methods, working accurately with up to four-digit whole numbers. They will add, subtract and find fractions of amounts. They will continue to develop their reasoning skills, explaining how they approached problems, analysing similarities and differences when working with shapes.
By the end of Year 4, your child should have memorised their multiplication tables up to and including the 12 multiplication table, demonstrating precision and fluency in their work.
