Welcome to our Year 4 web page – we hope you find all the information you require here.

Weekly activities to support your child’s learning:

  • Daily reading. Daily reading is invaluable to your child’s education. Please discuss the text with your child, ask questions and sign the home school diary every day, indicating any pages you have read. The book bag must come into school each day.
  • New spellings will go into the home school diaries on Tuesdays to be tested the following Tuesday. Please try and learn a few words with your child each night.
  • Additionally, please try and learn a few words each week from the Year 3/4 word list found at the bottom of this web page.
  • An expectation by the end of Year 4, is for each child to know their times tables up to 12 x 12. Please try to work on a few facts each night.

On- Going Homework:  

We are really keen for the children to become fluent at their times tables and this means regular practice at home and at school. Therefore, we have put some links to multiplication games onto our school website on the Year 4 page, which we would like the children to play in order to increase their fluency. 

By the end of Year 4, national expectations are that children know all their times tables up to 12 x 12 and can spell the 100 words from the Lower Junior List. Additionally, any work on telling the time would be helpful, as well as Maths in context such as measuring.

Spelling: We have been assessing your child’s spelling this week. Your child will be receiving their personalised weekly spelling words ( they will be glued into your child’s purple ‘Home- School Diary’). Please use the colourful ideas sheet from your child’s reading packet to help your child learn their personalised spellings in a fun way. They will be tested on the words a week later on a Tuesday.

Thank you for being such an appreciative audience during our Year 4 Recorder Concert and for supporting us at our Visit to St. Chad’s Church and Romiley Forum last week. We also value all the comments we have received from your child’s report and thank you for your compliments. Your children are wonderful and we have had a super year. We wish all our children and their families a happy summer holiday and future success, as the children begin their time in Upper Juniors.
