Even if it was only for a few days, Year 4 children absolutely loved being back at school. According to the students, being at home and playing computer games was fun, but they really missed their friends who they haven’t seen for a long time.

On the first day back, the children shared all the exciting stories from their Christmas break. Among the other activities such as discussing New Year’s resolutions, they played “Find Someone Who” game, where they had to use their questioning skills to find out information about their classmates. It seemed like an easy task at the beginning, but the children soon realised how important it was to take turns when talking, to listen to each other and to maintain eye contact with the person they were talking to. This was a great start for the day and an important lesson developing their social and communication skills.

In Maths, the activity that the children enjoyed the most was completing a specially designed multiplication square. Fluency in multiplication is essential for children’s future success in mathematics and an important aspect of Year 4 learning, preparing pupils for the multiplication table check (MTC). First, the children worked in small teams and subsequently on their own. Finding the answers wasn’t always easy so it was heartening to see our pupils challenging themselves and persevering in their efforts. Putting their answers on the board made their hard work worth it and gave them a great sense of accomplishment.
