 Welcome to Year 4

In Year 4 we aim to develop a safe, happy and enjoyable learning environment. We want to ensure that we create a place where everyone is able to thrive and make progress.

Your support of Home Learning is vital to help your child to fulfil their potential. We ask you to hear your child read at least 3 times a week and encourage them to practise their spellings.

It really helps your child’s learning to be ready to learn each day. Remember to bring their reading book, reading record and home-learning book every day, and PE kit should be in school at all times. We have PE on Wednesday and Thursday.

If you need to speak to us with questions or other issues then catch us at the end of the day, or email

Thank you for all your support.

Miss Swinburn (Badger Class)

Mr Stockton (Dragonfly Class)

How can I help my child in Year 4?     

Home Learning: to support learning in school, there will be a weekly home learning activity to be completed. Providing space, time and encouragement gives a positive message. Please talk about the task, encourage and guide the children through their home learning – please remember, we are here to support you if you have any concerns.

Read together:  listen to your child read or talk to them about what they have read. We use our Supporting Learning at Home diaries to record our reading at home. Read a variety of different genres and to make reading enjoyable.

Reading Dog Questions

Home spellings: each week, your child will receive new spellings based on Year 4 spelling patterns and rules, which will be tested on a Thursday. The children are provided with a red folder in which to keep their spellings in each week.

Times tables: This year, we are placing an emphasis on learning the times tables up to 12 x 12. Therefore, each week, your child will receive times table practise sheets, where they will practise the multiplication and division facts. Please encourage your child to practise their tables in a fun and engaging way through the Times Table Rockstars website
