Welcome to Year 4
A big, warm welcome to everyone from Mr McCabe, Mrs Machin, Mrs Sethi, Mrs Jones and Miss Schofield!
Year 4 is an exciting year for our children because they are becoming familiar with the learning and expectations as junior learners.
During Year 4, we provide opportunities for children to become independent thinkers, learners and decision makers.
They start this school year by trying to achieve 20 handwriting stars- earning their ‘pen license’! This means they will start writing in pen to ensure that they are using neat and cursive handwriting and showing pride in the presentation of their work.
Since 2020, all Year 4 children in England are required to complete a Multiplication Tables Check in the summer term. Therefore, the children will be working hard during Year 4 to learn their multiplication tables, playing lots of games, doing activities and lots of practice in class to ensure that they become fluent in this.
We have uploaded our long term planning for the year. This maps out our curriculum coverage and is used by teachers to plan units of learning. A copy of our weekly timetable has been uploaded so you can see which lessons we will be enjoying each day. We have uploaded a document intended to help parents and carers ensure their children are fluent, confident readers who love books! You will also find a letter about swimming lessons.
Most year 4 information, updates and photographs will be shared over class Dojo!
At the bottom of the page, there are some useful learning websites which will help children with their number work, telling the time, reading and spellings!
