Welcome to Year 4!  Year 4 is a very exciting, we will try to make your lessons informative, challenging and fun!

We will expect you to carry on growing as independent learners and continue building on good practices you have learnt as you continue moving forward in KS2.

You will improve your spelling knowledge and will enjoy seeing your writing develop as you learn to use lots of different sentence structures.  In maths we will challenge your mathematical reasoning and help you improve your mental maths strategies.

We look forward to you joining our year 4 team on our exciting journey!

Home Learning Expectation

Weekly Reading
We have a specific evening set aside on the homework timetable for reading when you can complete a longer session of reading at home, but we expect that you should be spending some time reading every night where possible.

Weekly Spellings
Pupils will receive spellings on a Friday and will be tested every Thursday.

Literacy and Maths
Pupils will also receive a literacy and a maths task to complete every week in their Mental Arithmetic and English Skills books.  Only one test should be completed in these books per week and the details of which one can be seen on the homework sheet.  These will be marked together in class on Thursday and given back out on a Friday.

Multiplication and division
Children will be given a set off multiplication or division facts to learn every week.  These will be tested in class most mornings throughout the week.

Class Jobs/Monitors
At the beginning of the year, the class votes for a representative from the class to be part of the school council. Members of the school council meet to discuss new ideas with teachers and feed back to the class.

Swimming Lessons
Every Year 4 child goes swimming on a Thursday afternoon.

PE Lessons are on Monday and Tuesday.

Your child will need:
Coat (with a hook so that it can be hung on the peg easily)
PE kit
Book bag
Reading book and reading record book
School homework diary
Spelling book
Homework file
Water bottle
Sun hat and sun cream already applied during sunny weather
Children may (but do not have to) bring a pencil case into school for use in some afternoon subjects. This must be small and may only contain certain items.  See the teacher for a full list.

Please make sure all of your child’s belongings are clearly named.
