Year 4 

English: This term we will be exploring diary entries, adventure stories, instructional writing and poetry. The children will also learn about nouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, pronouns and fronted adverbials. Some of the texts we will be studying are; ‘There's a Boy in the Girls Bathroom' and ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’.


Maths: We will be looking at place value, addition, subtraction, length and perimeter, multiplication and division.


For a more detailed overview, please see the curriculum overview at the bottom of this class page.



Alternating Maths and English homework will be sent home every week on a Monday and then marked the following Monday. Please remind your child to bring in their Homework book every Monday so new English or Maths sheets can be stuck in!


In addition to this set homework, each week your child should read aloud most days and their reading record books signed. They should also work on learning all their times tables up to 12x12. 


Class Routines

PE will take place on a Tuesday PM and Friday PM. Children should come into school in their PE kit on these days. No earrings or watches are allowed. Children need to have a blue PE shirt, blue shorts and/or jogging bottoms, a warm jacket, trainers and socks.


Multiplication Tables Check (MTC)

Children will be sitting their Multiplication Tables Check at school in June 2024. Revision has already begun in school, and the children will have opportunities most days to sit the online test on a school iPad or PC or revise specific times tables. Support with times-tables at home will really help give your child the opportunity to do their very best in the test.
