Daily – Children need to bring a named water bottle into school every day. Children are able to access outside learning regularly so it is important that they always come to school with a hooded coat. During the summer children should also have a named sunhat.


PE – Tuesdays


If they test positive for covid, we will provide your child with a remote home learning package for the duration of their isolation period.  This will include both online and off-line activities for each day. Details of this will be sent to you via SchoolComms and a copy of it, along with the lesson materials your child needs, will be uploaded into Google Classroom for your child to access using their usual login details.


Homework will be set weekly on Google Classroom.

Times Tables: Year 4 is a key year for children to develop fluent recall of all times tables to support them in their Maths leaning and also to prepare for the national multiplication tables tests in the Summer term. We therefore encourage children to practice tables regularly. Children have logins for Times Table Rockstars which they can also access from home to help them learn their tables.


We are excited to be updating a lot of the Year 4 learning for this year.
