What You Will Need in Year 4

Reading Books:  Your child will need to bring their reading book and reading record to school every day. You are encouraged to read with your child every day and to sign their reading record.

Homework:  Children are set weekly online maths and English homework. They are also expected to visit the Times Tables Rock Stars website three times a week in order to practise their times tables. Children are expected to arrive in Year 4 knowing the 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 times tables. By the end of Year 4, children are expected to be secure with all the times tables from 2 - 12. In the summer term, Year 4 children across the country must complete the multiplication tables check. It is very important that children continue to practise their times tables on a daily basis in order to meet and maintain these expectations.

Spellings:  New spellings are given every Monday to take home and practise throughout the week. Children will then be tested on these spellings on Friday.

PE:  For Spring 2 half term, your child's PE day is Tuesday. Please ensure your child comes to school wearing their PE kit on this day. The class teacher will clarify which kit is needed (indoor or outdoor) at the beginning of each half term depending on what their topic is.

Library Day:  The children have the opportunity to borrow a book from the school library. Please note there is a £7 fee for lost library books.

Water Bottles:  Children are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school each day. It may only contain water - no fruit juice or cordial please. 

Year 4 Yearly Overview

A Day in Court!

Year 4 took a trip to the Employment Tribunal in Manchester to spend the day in court! They had the opportunity to meet a real judge and barrister to find out what their jobs are like. They also looked at a real Victorian court case and acted out the trial. The children took on the roles of  judge, clerks, prosecution team, defence team, witnesses and a jury. It was a fascinating trip and the children loved playing their part in the court room.
