Children in Year 4 receive the following homework:

English (on a weekly rotation)

Mathematics (on a weekly rotation)

Spellings (on a weekly basis)

Learning Log (on a half term basis)

Times Tables - please work with your child on learning their times tables. We focus on a different one from the 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, and 12 every two weeks.

All homework should be handed  in on time unless otherwise agreed with the class teacher.


The children have two P.E sessions each week; one on a Tuesday afternoon and one on a Wednesday afternoon. We recommend kits are brought in a Monday and taken home on a Friday.

Children should have both an indoor and outdoor kit in case of inclement weather during the colder months.

Girls with long hair should tie it back and all jewellery, including earings, must be removed for P.E.

Any child who does not have a suitable P.E kit may be asked to complete alternate work.


Children receive one guided reading session with the teacher every week. Aside of this, they have follow up sessions which are linked to their text. They will also have the opportunity to participate in SPaG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) activities during guided reading sessions. I will endeavour to read with your child during any quiet reading time throughout the day but I cannot stress the importance of your child reading at home with you as much as possible.

Outside of school, we ask that children are read with 3 times a week. If you would like any extra support in how to get the most out of reading with your child, please do not hesitate to come and speak to me.
