What You Need to Know

Y4C Class Leaflet

Y4H Class Leaflet 


  • Please send your child in their PE kit on Mondays and Fridays for 4H, and Fridays for 4C for PE lessons.
  • PE kit is a plain white t-shirt with dark trainers or pumps, and blue or black shorts. Plain black or blue tracksuit bottoms may be worn in the winter.
  • On Wednesdays, we have swimming lessons, so don’t forget to bring your kit and a towel!
  • Homework will be given on Fridays to reflect the week’s learning.
  • Children will also practice spellings for the Grand Spell each Friday, as well as their multiplication for the times tables test that takes place on Friday mornings.
  • Reading books will be changed when the children have read them and they have been signed by an adult. Please make sure the children are reading regularly to practise their skills. We encourage all our children to read for at least 10 minutes every day outside of the classroom.


Y4 Multiplication Check - June 2024

In Year 4, the children complete a multiplication check test. This will be completed on a tablet/iPad and it consists of the children answering 25 times tables facts (multiplication only) with 6 seconds to answer each one. There is no pass or fail mark but the children should be constantly learning and revising their times tables up to 12 times 12 as much as possible. Children will be practising in school on TT Rock Stars and they will be completing the 'Soundcheck' option, as this is timed just like the multiplication check. If they could also practise at home on TT Rock Stars, this would be a great help!


Year 4 Autumn Curriculum Overview:

Religion - We are learning about the family of God in Scripture. This topic explores the truth that Jesus had a natural family with real people with names and a history.

English - We are looking at two books this term called 'Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters' and 'The Matchbox Diary'. For 'Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters', we will be creating an alternative ending for the story based on what we have learnt about the different characters and the main events in the story. In 'The Matchbox Diary' we will be learning about the features of a diary entry so that we can write our own. During this term we will also explore some poetry and identify rhyming couplets, as well as performing some poetry from 'Bright Bursts of Colour'.

Maths - We are focusing on Place Value in the first half term. In this topic we will be working with numbers in their thousands and we will be learning to read and write these numbers. We will also look at Addition and Subtraction, particularly on using formal written methods of adding and subtracting as well as practising our speedy mental calculations for adding 1, 10, 100 and thousands to numbers. In the second half term, we will move on to Area, and Multiplication and Division.
