Year 4

Dear children and adults,


Welcome to the Year 4 Year Page!


Please keep an eye on our Year 4 blog to find out more about what we have been up to in school - we try to post at least once each few weeks. 


4SW - Mrs Soars (usually Monday/Tuesday) and Mrs White (usually Thursday/Friday) We work alternate Wednesdays. Mrs Hardcastle covers the class on a Wednesday afternoon.


4R - Mrs Reynolds. Mrs Rowan covers the class on a Wednesday afternoon.


Mrs Lockhart helps both classes every morning.

Mrs Tong will be coming in on a Friday to help us with our music lessons.


We hope that the information that we have provided on this page is helpful. If you have any other questions please contact us on the emails below or speak to us after school. We are here to help.


Kind Regards,

Mrs Reynolds. Mrs Soars & Mrs White

PE - outdoor PE: usually Wednesdays and indoor PE: usually Thursdays. Make sure that you have appropriate kit in school please (and label all your things!)


Reading - please read, read, read! Everyday please - even if it is for just two minutes. We want you to get into good reading habits and make it part of your day rather than a chore. We will check your reading records regularly so please remember to record your reading.


Spelling - there will be weekly Live Hives on our spelling patterns and half termly tests on the Year 4 words. Please try to learn how to spell the Year 2 and 3 words if you can't do this. If you find spelling tricky try to learn one or two a week and use Spelling Shed to practise. Did you know that you can set your own lists?


Times Tables - there will be a Year 4 National Times Table check at the end of the year so get practising now! You can use Times Table Rockstars or Maths shed. Can you win our weekly Times Table trophy?


Other online programs that you can use to practise your skills include MyMaths, Letterjoin and Purple Mash. Speak to us if you need your logins. Google drive can also be used at home for school related activities.


Homework will be set and checked each Friday. You will have one piece of Maths and one piece of English each week. Homework club will run each Tuesday lunchtime if you need any help with this. Please spend no longer than an hour (maximum) on each piece of homework.
