Welcome to YEAR 4

In Y4, we pride ourselves on the quality and breadth of the curriculum. Our Y4 curriculum is designed to serve the needs of all pupils, using a variety of approaches and stimuli, including visits, visitors, theme days and engaging activities. We are committed to making learning enjoyable in a safe environment protected from harm.

Subject Long Term Plans

Our Homework Expectations:

Reading Plus/lexia  to be done for approximately 30 minutes at home twice weekly. This can be written in the reading record to count as a reading session.

Reading – reading daily if possible (on days not doing Reading Plus) and record this in the individual reading records.

Maths – maths will usually be set on My Maths and/or Times Table Rockstars. This will be set on a Friday to be completed by the following Thursday evening. The maths work will link to the objectives being taught in school.

Spellings – a list of spelling words are sent out on Monday. The children keep this list and learn the words. How they choose to learn them is up to the individual. There will be a test on these words on a Friday.

If for any reason your child is unable to do their homework or they struggle with it, a brief note from home in their reading record would be appreciated. Please note reading records are not routinely seen by an adult daily.

Other homework may be set, but this will not be regular.

We are very much looking forward to working with your child and hope that he/she will enjoy their time in Year 4. We work best when there is an effective partnership with parents so, if you have any concerns, or wish to discuss an aspect of your child’s education, please do not hesitate to get in touch. If you wish to pass on a message, we have helpful staff on the entrance to Y4 every morning who will be happy to assist you.
