What You Need to Know

Y4C Class Leaflet

Y4M Class Leaflet 

Please send your child in their PE kit on Tuesdays 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.


Y4 Multiplication Check-June 2024

In year 4 the children complete a multiplication check. This  will be completed on a tablet/ipad and consist 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 Times Tables Rockstars completing the 'Soundcheck'  as this is timed just like the multiplication check. If they could also practise at home on TT Rockstars this would be a great help. Please see the letter attached below which was handed out to parents with details of the check. 


Year 4 Autumn Curriculum Overview

English - We are looking at two books this term called 'Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters' and 'The Matchbox Diaries'. For 'Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters', we will be creating an additional scene for the story based on what we have learnt about the different characters and the main events in the story. In 'The Matchbox Diaries' 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 poetry from 'Bright Bursts of Colour'.
