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 – Monday and Friday. Please ensure PE kits are clearly named.

A Year 4 newsletter is sent out via School Comms each week. Children will also receive a child-friendly version in their homework diaries.

Reading: Please read with your child as often as possible and ideally at least three times a week. Reading books will be changed if parents have signed to confirm their child has read. Please send books into school each day as children will have a range of reading opportunities in class.

Big talk: Children are given a topic to research at home once a week and are expected to share what they have learnt.

Times Tables: Year 4 is a key year for children to develop fluent recall of all times tables so they are encouraged to practice these regularly.
