Year 4

Welcome to our Year 4 class page! Summer Term is upon us already!

Class Teacher - Mrs Sharrock

Teaching Assistant - Ms Caton

Year 4 is such a wonderful year! We are building on all of our previous learning in Year 3 and having lots of fun along the way. This year we will have our Multiplication Check Test in June, our children are already great at their times tables but we will continue to practice as we go through the year. We love sharing some of our learning with you as we continue through our busy year.

Year 4 Curriculum

Homework

Homework is Reading Plus or Lexia and TTRS. Please access this online learning regularly, I will be monitoring pupil usage. Please ask if you are on hold or have any issues logging in. 

Times tables Preparation for the MTC in June 2024

We are working hard in preparation for our MTC in June. Your child can practice their times tables using TTRS and UR Brainy, which has a similar format of times tables questions. Please practice these as much as possible. 

Spellings

We will also send home spellings on a Monday for a spelling test on the following Monday. If your child doesn't do as well as we know they can with their spellings, they will be retested on the following Wednesday. Please practice their spellings with them as this helps them greatly in their other lessons.

PE

During Summer term we have PE on a Monday and a Friday. Our Monday PE will take place on a Monday with Progressive Sports. On a Friday we will be consolidating our learning and of course, practicing for Sports Day!. Please ensure that your child has full school PE kit on those days.
