Year 4

Miss Faultless & Miss Askey

Welcome to Year 4!

We hope you have all had a fantastic week off and are ready to start learning again! Miss.Askey, Mrs Smith and I are very excited about the new half-term and we have lots of exciting learning planned so we can’t wait to get started!  The classroom is ready, with lots of amazing displays to support and enhance children’s learning.  Our first topic back is ‘Rivers and Mountains’ which I am sure the children will enjoy along with our book in guided reading which is ‘The River Singers’.


Please try to read as much as you can at home. For some ideas about books that are appropriate for Year 4 children, see the link below.


Our multiplication tables check is fast approaching so priority is constant times table practice.



Our PE days will be a Monday and Tuesday. Children are required to come to school on these days in their school PE kit.



Homework will be given out on a Friday and collected in on a Wednesday – this is to accommodate busy weekends etc!  If children need any help with their homework or wish to do their homework in school, we are available on Monday and Tuesday lunchtimes for this.  Please do feel free to comment on your child’s homework regarding how they got on with the task and any difficulties which they found – this information is all very helpful to me when evaluating children’s learning!

Please encourage children to read every night and have a record of this in their reading record book. Times tables will be key this year. We will be continuing to practise times tables every day in school but we encourage the children to also be practising at home in preparation for their times tables assessment at the end of the year.

Spellings will be set on a Friday for testing on the following Friday.  They will be set on Spelling Shed and a copy also stuck into their reading record/homework diaries.
