Year 4 maths Progress checks

Y4 maths Progress checks, TheSchoolRun
How is your child progressing in Y4 maths? Check they've grasped the essential skills and identify any areas where they need some revision and practice with our Progress Checks. Download the three tests (one for each term) now to see the kind of calculations your child will be working on at school this year.
Keystage:  KS2, Year 4

Our Y4 maths Progress Checks, prepared by a KS2 teacher, will help you identify any areas your child is having trouble with so you can support their learning at home.

Each term’s maths test consists of 20 questions and a total of 20 marks. The first 5 questions are mental maths questions (allow your child 10 seconds for each one) and the next 15 are written questions (allow your child as much time as they like to do these questions).

The Progress checks are designed to follow TheSchoolRun's Learning Journey for that particular term. Please note: they cannot and will not necessarily follow what your child’s teacher is doing at school this week / term, as teachers tend to choose to cover objectives in an order that they feel suits their class. Therefore, don’t worry if your child cannot complete certain questions; the point of the Progress checks is to help parents identify where children might need extra help and practice.
