What happens in Year 4?

Children in Year 4 will consolidate the skills learnt in Year 3 and to prepare them for independent learning in Year 5.

Many exciting and fun things happen in Year 4:

  • The children take part in a Christmas play in the Holy Trinity Church.
  • There is an Africa themed day; a Tudor banquet day including dressing up in Tudor costumes and a Viking and Anglo Saxon themed day.
  • The children create a Water Aid fund raising event.
  • The children go on a PGL trip in the summer term.

Day by day guide

Children need reading folders, homework diaries, a book and pencil cases in school every day.

Please encourage your child to read for 10 minutes a day and where possible read and discuss texts with an adult on a regular basis. Please sign the homework diary each week to confirm that daily reading has been done. Children who have a reading scheme book are responsible for changing their own books at least once a week. A teacher will help those children who need help selecting books. Children will update any books they read from the library or the class book corner on their genre chart which is kept in their A4 reading folder.

Children will need to remember their PE kits for their two PE days and their kits need to be named.

  • 4E – Tuesday and Thursday
  • 4A – Tuesday and Wednesday 
  • 4B – Wednesday and Thursday



This will be handed out on a Monday and should be returned by Wednesday. Spelling lists will also be given. These will be glued into homework diaries where there is space for learning them. We expect children to practise their spellings at home regularly. If your child does not understand the meaning of a word, please encourage them to look it up in a dictionary and to practise using the word in a sentence.


This will be handed out on a Wednesday, and should be returned by Friday. Children will also be given a mental maths skill to practise (i.e. 7 times table) and this will be tested during the week. We would greatly appreciate your help in assisting your children with these skills – there are many ways to make learning these fun , for example: songs, computer games, and flashcards.


In order to promote more responsibility for their own learning, the children will be given an exciting Africa project to complete over the course term. All details and instructions will be included when they receive their project folders and it will clearly be explained to them at school. We will also be discussing this at the curriculum evening should you have any questions.

The children have also been provided with a new reading folder which should be brought into school on a daily basis and contain the following items:

  • School Diary
  • Current reading book
  • Book band book (supplied by school if applicable)

These days may occasionally change, depending on the length of the homework.

Two homework books are provided. There is a homework club on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday in the Computing suite if children wish to complete their homework at lunchtime.
