Home learning

  • Reading books will be given out weekly from the week beginning 21/9/20. More information about this is in the letter posted above. 
  • Times tables - these are extremely important in Year Four, as in July the children will be sitting the government's 'Multiplication tables check'. This is because the expectation by the end of Year 4, is that the children know all of the multiplication facts to 12X12. Please practise as much as possible at home with your children. There are some links below that the children can use. The children's TTRS (Times Tables Rock Stars) logins are also up and running again.

Autumn 1


In English, we are currently recapping the different types of sentences and what they need to contain. (Simple, Compound and Complex). We are using these sentences in character and setting descriptions based on our class novel.


In maths, we are enhancing the place value work the children did in Year 3 and are now looking at the place value of 4 digit numbers up to 10,000.
