In Maths we are continuing to follow White Rose.  During this term our main focus is place value and addition and subtraction.


We will also be continuing to learn our multiplication tables.


A big focus within Years 3 and 4 this year is times table knowledge. By the end of year 4, the children should know their times tables up to 12 x 12 by heart.

Below are links to two documents showing what children should know and be able to do in Maths by the end of years 3 and 4:
