Year 4 Overview

Welcome to year 4. Children will have PE on Wednesdays and swimming on Thursdays so please ensure they have their kit in school on both days. Children are dropped off and picked up from the main playground where they line up on the pitch. Home learning is set on J2 every Friday and children are expected to read every day at home.

The Year 4 Curriculum

Children in year 4 take a statutory multiplication tables check in the summer term so learning their times tables is very important. We suggest daily practise on Times Table Rockstars to support their fluency and speed.

Year 4 children also go swimming at Southgate Leisure Centre for the autumn term. This is fully funded by the local authority and is a statutory part of the curriculum meaning children cannot be withdrawn. Please see the letter below for guidance on what your child needs for swimming lessons.

Year 4 Home Learning

Home learning is set every Friday with a timetable on J2Launch. Children complete the work online and in their home learning book. Children have a week to complete their home learning and teachers will check and reward children in class. Please encourage your child to complete their home learning on time and celebrate their achievements with them.
