The Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check (MTC)

In Year 4 pupils sit a national MTC. The purpose of the check is to determine whether your child can fluently recall their times tables up to 12, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It will also help us identify if your child may need additional support.

The check takes place in June and consists on 25 on-screen multiplication questions. Children have 6 seconds to answer the questions - children who are secure in their times table knowledge will cope well with this.

Although parents do not need to 'prepare' children for this check, you can certainly help secure your children's times table knowledge. Testing and playing times table games with your children at home is really helpful as the key to securing time table knowledge is practise, practise and more practise! 

All our children have access to Times Table Rock Stars (ask you child's classteacher if you do not have the log-in) and we also find the following helpful as it is a similar format to the MTC:

Reading for Pleasure

At Hatton Hill we place a high priority on encouraging children to read for pleasure. Reading for pleasure (this means reading with free will and for the pure joy of it) will help your child suceed in school and in life. Children who are keen readers don’t only get better at reading and writing, they develop wider vocabulary and broader knowledge about the world. Reading can also make a significant contribution to the wellbeing of every individual. 

Below are some recommended reads and also short films made by The Open University which are designed to support you in sharing books with your child(ren). Conversationally, enjoyably, and effectively, Book Chat develops children's language, comprehension, and pleasure. Please take the time to watch this clip as it will help you help your child enter the fascinating world of reading!

 

Healthy Children 

We know that sometimes our pupils cannot come to school because they are really unwell - and that's the right thing to do for them and other students. Medical advice is clear however that children with mild illness will often be well enough to attend - for example if they have a cough, or cold, without a temperature. The NHS guidance Is my child too ill for school? - NHS (www.nhs.uk) is designed to support parents in their decision making about mild illness. 

We also know that pupils fall behind their friends and classmates when they miss school. At Hatton Hill School we want the amount of missed education to be reduced as much as possible. We believe that our community is stronger together, with all of our pupils in school, on time, every day. We are building life skills, life-long friendships and preparing your child for future success. 

It can be tricky deciding whether or not to keep your child off school, nursery or playgroup when they're unwell. The information below is designed to help you make a decision, however if you are concerned about your child, always seek medical advice.
