Year 4

Year 4

Hello everyone!

You can follow our exciting journey with us and watch our learning unfold.

It is a pleasure to be part of a great team and we look forward to diving into our first topic ‘The Great Outdoors’.

Class routines and information

The children use lockers so we ask that the equipment they bring in is kept to a minimum. A small bag is essential as is any suitable stationary the children wish to bring in. We will provide stationary for any children unable to bring in their own.

Children need to wear full school uniform each day unless it is a PE day where children can still come into school in their PE kits.


In the Autumn Term-

PE days will take place every Tuesday and Friday.

On Friday’s during the Autumn Term the children will partake in swimming lessons.

Please ensure children have the correct swimming kit- this should consist of a one piece swimming costume, swimming cap, towel- if your child requires goggles, please ask for a letter as this will need to be completed and returned in order for your child to wear them due to health and safety. If you previously completed a goggles letter this will need to be renewed.



Keeping hydrated is conducive to good learning. Please encourage your child to bring a reusable, named bottle of water to school to drink throughout the day. These can be topped up as required.


Home school link diaries

The expectations remain the same for the children and their reading – four times per week to earn stars in their reading diaries – and for their reading diaries to be brought into school each day. Please continue to make a note in the diary of when you have heard your child read or encourage your child to write in their own diaries, however parents must sign this off.

Building independence in Year 4

Children are now able to leave the classroom without the supervision of a teacher at the end of the school day. However, children cannot leave the school premises without an adult. If your child has a sibling in Reception or Year 1-they can make their way down to the KS1 Hall if you wish them to meet you there. Please note children should not leave the school gates without adult supervision. If they cannot find anyone who is taking them home they must return to the classroom or go to the school office.

For any further queries, please contact the office.

Times tables

There is a huge push in Year 4 for the children know and recall their times tables fluently, so please ensure that you are assisting with this at home. Times Table Rockstars is an ideal tool for this.
