By the end of Year 4, most children should be able to…

· Know the 2, 3, 4 and 10 times tables by heart, eg know facts like 7 x 5 and 36 divided by 4.

· Round numbers like 672 to the nearest 10 or 100.

· Work out that a simple fraction like 2/6 is equivalent to 1/3.

· Work out sums like 26 + 58 and 62 – 37 in their heads.

· Work out sums like 234 + 479 or 791 – 223 using pencil and paper and writing them in columns.

· Multiply numbers like 38 by 10 or by 100, and divide numbers like 4200 by 10 or 100.

· Multiply and divide numbers up to 100 by 2, 3, 4 or 5, and find remainders, eg 36 x 3, 87 divided by 4.

· Change pounds to pence and centimetres to metres, and vice versa, eg work out that £3.45 is the same as 345p, and that 3.5 metres is the same as 350 centimetres.

· Tell the time to the nearest minute and use a simple timetable.

· Pick out shapes with similar features, eg shapes with sides the same length, or with right angles, or symmetrical shapes.

· Use plus, minus, multiply and divide to solve problems and decide whether it is best to calculate in their head or on paper.

At the age of 8 and 9 your child will be in Year 4.

Year 4 is the second of 4 years where your child will be working at Key Stage 2. At the end of Key Stage 2 your child should have reached a particular level of skills, knowledge and understanding.

Schools use targets to check each child’s progress so they can adapt their teaching to best serve the child.

Some children will not progress as quickly as others or have special educational needs. Parents and carers have a key role in the educational development of their child. It is important to communicate with your child’s teacher, take an interest in what your child is learning at school and praise your child when they have done well.
