Year Groups

Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

In Year 4 children continue to develop their independence and start to prepare for their transition and learning in Upper KS2. It is in this year that children will take the new mandatory multiplication check in the summer term and take part in swimming lessons.


As part of our broad and enquiring curriculum, the children will study topics with robust curriculum connections that build on the knowledge and skills developed in previous years.


Along the same corridor as Year 3, Year 4 pupils grow to become great role models for the younger children arriving from KS1.


See curriculum maps for further information about the Year 4 curriculum.

Home Learning

Maths and English homework is set on a Thursday and due on a Tuesday.

Spelling day is Thursday both the lesson and test will be on the same day. Spellings will be handed out via paper copy into a blue exercise book and handed back on the following Thursday.

Reading records – 2x entries a week with parents’ initials recorded.


We recommend a “little and often” approach; 3 minutes of practice a day, 4 or 5 times a week is a good target.
