Welcome to Year 4
Welcome to Year 4! I am really excited to work with you and your child over the next school year. Year 4 is a great year with lots of lovely topics to explore. This year will be challenging, rewarding, but most importantly, lots of fun! Mrs Stuart and I will guide the children through this year, supporting their learning and preparing them for their next jump to the upper juniors.
Please feel free to contact me at any point throughout the year. I am happy to help in any way possible.
PE kits should be brought in at the start of the week and will be sent home on a Friday.
PE will normally be on a Thursday afternoon and a Friday morning.
Year 4 Autumn 1 Homework
In Year 4, regular homework is set. Homework is set on Friday each week and must be handed in on, or before, the Wednesday of the following week. The following activities are set each week:
In Key Stage Two, we encourage children to become more independent readers and the expectation is that pupils read at home each day for at least 10 minutes. This term, your child will select reading books, of the appropriate level for them, with an adult from either the class book corner or school library. One reading book will stay at school in their tray for quiet reading opportunities. The children can bring in a book from home to read, however this needs to be clearly labelled and it is their responsibility to look after it. We recommend that children choose a variety of authors and genres to read. The children are required to record the details of their reading in their green reading records. In order for the children to succeed at school, children need to be able to read fluently, have a varied and rich vocabulary and fully comprehend what they have read. If your child has read 4 times in a week, they will receive one raffle ticket.
This year, a statutory times tables assessment has been introduced. The children in Year 4 will be assessed in the Summer Term on all their times tables from 2s-12s. Please ensure your child practises regularly at home in addition to lesson times.
