Growing Together in God

Into Narnia

The Chronicles of Narnia': A Spiritual Journey - Our Sunday Visitor  

Core skills and success – you do the maths


As mathematicians, we will;

  • recall multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 × 12

  • use place value, known and derived facts to multiply and divide mentally, including:
    multiplying by 0 and 1; dividing by 1; multiplying together three numbers

  •  recognise and use factor pairs and commutativity in mental calculations

  •  multiply two-digit and three-digit numbers by a one-digit number using formal written

  • solve problems involving multiplying and adding, including using the distributive law
    to multiply two digit numbers by one digit, integer scaling problems and harder
    correspondence problems such as n objects are connected to m objects.

This year, Year 4s will take part in the compulsory Times Tables Check. Children will answer 25 questions, with only 6 seconds to answer each question.

How can you help at home?

Please ensure that you regularly practise and test your child on their times tables.  At the end of Year 4, children should know the all times tables up to 12x12.  It is always useful to practise the times tables as this really helps children with a range of mathematics work in school.  If you have access to the internet, please visit the following sites to support your child's learning at home.


In English, we will be creating our own Narnia setting and character descriptions. As well as this, we will write our own non chronological reports.   

How you can help your child? Encourage your child to read their reading book and ask them questions about the text which they are reading.

It is important to read a variety of texts with your child.  This can be anything from their reading books to newspapers and leaflets.  This will help to extend your child’s vocabulary and their understanding of different text types, which will in turn help to improve their writing.

Class Book - The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe 

Four adventurous siblings―Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie― step through a wardrobe door and into the land of Narnia, a land frozen in eternal winter and enslaved by the power of the White Witch. But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change . . . and a great sacrifice.

Lewis’s classic fantasy series, which has been drawing readers of all ages into a magical land with unforgettable characters for over sixty years.
