Year 4

Welcome to the Year 4 class page. The class teacher is Mr Harris.


Mrs Upton is the class' TA and works every day, all day except for Thursdays. Mrs Upton covers the class on Wednesday afternoons.

PE is Thursday afternoons and the children must come into school wearing their PE kit. Our ICT slot is Wednesday afternoons.

Homework and spellings are given out every Friday. Homework is to be handed in the following Friday and the spelling test will also take place on this day. 


Children should aim to read 4 times a week and parents should record when their child reads to them in their reading records. These reading records should be brought in every Friday to check how much they're reading.

Library books - children have the opportunity to take out a library book and this happens every Friday. For a child to take out a new library book, they must hand in their previous one before they can change it. 


At the end of Year 4, children will complete a times tables test where they are expected to know all their times tables and associated division facts. It is not for you or your child to worry about, but a chance for us (and the government) to see how we are getting on as a school. Please practise these at home where possible.
