Here are a collection of pictures sent in from our Year 4 pupils of the work they have been producing at home. You have all been working really hard, we are very proud of you all!
Below we have created guidance to support Year 4 ‘home learning’. We are aware that children may not always be able to access a computer or tablet device and feel very strongly that learning should not all be screen based. As such, we recommend - where possible - a balance of screen-based and screen-free activities for each subject. Suggestions for these activities will be emailed to you each week; there will be a separate grid for ‘screen-based’ and alternative ‘screen-free’ learning. You can access the weekly grids in the section below.

Year 4 is made up of 3 classes and we are located in the Cathedral End of the school.

A list of the spellings we will be covering this term can be found below. Each week your child will be expected to learn their spellings for a test. Archimedes, Hubble and Berners-Lee will be tested on the spellings each week. All children will have a week to learn their spellings. You can also find a copy of the spellings for the term in your child's reading record.
Some activities you may wish to use with child to help them learn their spellings are:
Primary-school children in Year 4 are expected to know all their times tables up to 12 x 12 under the current National Curriculum. To prepare them for this we will be providing pupils with the opportunity to practice their times tables knowledge using the following FREE link:
As explained, during our meet the teacher evening, each week your child should be practising their times tables. They will be completing a speed grid in school each week, where they have 6 minutes to answer as many times table questions as they can. This will then be marked and the class teacher will identify a times table for your child to learn each week - please find this information in your child's reading record. The speed grids are differentiated to cater for all abilities. Examples of the speed grids to be completed can be found below.
Activities to help you and your child:
After completing the speed grid, your child will move onto a differentiated Mental Maths paper each week .
