Age: 8 - 9 Years - End of Year 4 Review
The Badgers Summer School includes Arithmetic that a child aged 8–9 would expect to have encountered by the end of School Year 4 . The material is grouped according to the new National Curriculum Attainment Targets for Year 4.

Click here for more detail on how we've updated our Summer Schools for the new National Curriculum.

All children learn and develop at different rates so we would advise you to look at the detail within each school to make sure you choose the package which will best support your child’s learning.

A range of Maths Skills is taught within each Maths Camp using Video Lessons and Learning Games, with plenty of opportunities for practising.

Within the Badgers Summer School , your child will explore 5 Maths Camps:

Camp 1: Understanding Numbers
Divide a 2 or 3 digit number by 10
More detail...
Learn to divide by 10, first with the support of a place value chart, ensuring understanding of digits moving places, rather than taking off 0s. Then learn to divide without a place value chart, progressing from dividing 2 digit numbers to 3 digit numbers. For example, 870 ÷ 10 = 87 Hide

Camp 2: Knowing Number Facts
9 times table and dividing by 9
More detail...
Learn the 9 times table, by looking at it in order, using a music video, learning the finger trick and other patterns, but most of all by practising it. Go through the division facts that relate to the 9 times table, emphasising their relationship with the times table facts. For example: 5 x 9 = 45, 9 x 5 = 45, 45 ÷ 5 = 9, 45 ÷ 9 = 5. Practise dividing by 9. Hide

Mixed 3, 6 and 9 times tables
More detail...
Get to know the multiples of the 3, 6 and 9 times tables better. Practise the facts in the context of a times table grid and reinforce knowledge of these tables by practising mixed sequences. Hide

7 times table and dividing by 7
More detail...
Learn the 7 times table in order, then using a music video. Learn some tricks to help with recalling the table facts and practise them, both in order and randomly. Go through the division facts that relate to the 7 times table, emphasising their relationship with the times table facts. For example: 8 x 7 = 56, 7 x 8 = 56, 56 ÷ 8 = 7, 56 ÷ 7 = 8. Practise dividing by 7. Hide

Mixed 7, 8, 9 and 10 times tables
More detail...
Work on some of the worst-known times tables, by trying out a finger trick and playing a factor game, then by practising mixed sequences of the 7, 8, 9 and 10 times tables. Hide

Mixed 1 to 10 times tables
More detail...
Review all of the times tables up to 10 x 10, by playing a factor game, practising answers in a times table grid and by practising mixed sequences of all of the times tables. Hide

Dividing by 2 to 10
More detail...
Practise dividing by a mixture of numbers 2 to 10, continuing to emphasise the relationship between times table and division facts. Hide

11 Times tables
More detail...
Learn and practise the 11 times table. Hide

12 Times tables
More detail...
Learn and practise the 12 times table. Hide

Camp 3: Calculations
Dividing by 3, 6 and 9 with remainders
More detail...
Learn to divide with remainders in answers, starting by carrying out divisions pictorially, then moving on to just using numbers. Work through dividing by 3, 6 and 9 separately, then practise with a mixture of all 3. Hide

Dividing by numbers 2 to 10 with remainders
More detail...
Review dividing by numbers 2 to 10 with remainders in answers, with tips about remainders and mixed practice sessions. Hide

Column multiplication up to 2 digits x 1 digit
More detail...
Learn to multiply in columns, starting by putting times table facts in columns, then moving on to 2 digits multiplied by a single digit. As larger numbers are multiplied, carrying tens and then hundreds is introduced. For example, 87 x 9. There is also teaching on multiplying by multiples of 10, using mental methods. Hide

Dividing 2 digits by 1 digit using chunking and short division
More detail...
Start to use more formal methods for writing down division. Work on 'chunking’, then on the short division method, with an emphasis on careful placing of digits. Divisions include answers both with and without remainders. Hide

Multiplication of 3 digit x 1 digit numbers
More detail...
Learn to use column multiplication with 3 digit numbers, building understanding of the process without any carrying, then introducing carry digits, first carrying tens, then hundreds, then both, so that any 3 digit number can be multiplied by any single digit. Hide

Camp 4: Fractions
Put fractions in order
More detail...
Learn to arrange fractions in order of size by converting all the fractions to the same denominator. Fractions are limited to 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s, with a number line used first to help understanding with ordering proper fractions, such as the correct ordering of 1/4, 3/8, 1/2. Then improper fractions are put in order of size by converting them all to the same denominator. For example, converting 3/2, 16/4 and 24/8 all to 1/8s before putting in order of size. Hide

Find proper fractions
More detail...
Extend understanding of finding simple fractions by working with other
numerators, remembering to multiply by the numerator and divide by the
denominator, but always finding proper fractions of numbers, with whole number
answers. For example: 8/9 of 81 = 72. Hide

Camp 5: Decimals
Introducing decimals
More detail...
Learn about decimals, the decimal point and names of places after the decimal point. Look at apparatus showing decimal numbers, focus on the importance of positioning digits, including zero, to represent decimal numbers accurately. Practise identifying the value of digits in numbers with up to 3 decimal places. For example, what is the value of 3 in 4.563? Hide

1/10s and 1/100s as decimals
More detail...
Use place value principles to write 1/10s as decimal numbers, starting with smaller
1/10s and using a place value chart then progressing to converting mixed numbers.
Apply the same ideas to write 1/100s as decimal numbers. Hide

Key fractions as decimals
More detail...
Develop understanding of the relationship between some key fractions (1/4, 1/2 and
3/4) and their equivalent decimals, both by looking at converting fractions to 1/10s
and 1/100s then using place value and also by carrying out the division.
Then carry out the conversion in the reverse order of decimals to fractions. Hide

Writing money as decimal
More detail...
Become confident with writing amounts of money correctly and with knowing
how not to write them. Learn to convert amounts of money written in pounds into
amounts written in pence, by multiplying by 100. Then work on the reverse, by
dividing by 100. For example: £54 = 5400p and 307p = £3.07. Hide
