Year 4 Summer News

Dear Parents and Carers,

Haven’t the last two terms flown by?! We now only have one term left of year 4 and we’ve got an exciting one planned. With the weather improving, pupils will have more opportunities for outdoor learning and experiences, which we are sure they will enjoy. 

Homework and Reading

Homework is set on a Tuesday and due on a Tuesday. Homework will continue to be set online and this can be found on the school website. Children have all been given logins to access any websites or apps they are required to use. Homework will be checked by teachers the following Tuesday. The children will bring home a reading record and are expected to read to themselves or, when possible, to an adult at least 3 times each week and keep a record of the pages read.  
Thank you for finding the time to hear your child read regularly because it makes such a difference to their confidence and learning.

Times Tables

The children will continue to practise times tables facts in school. It would be beneficial if this could also take place at home as this will increase your child’s confidence and accuracy when calculating. Children could spend some time on Times Table Rock Stars to support them with this. Children are tested on their times tables weekly on a Monday. 
Children will complete the National Multiplication Times Table Check after May half term. More information will be sent to parents regarding this after the Easter break. 

BYMT Music Teaching

This year, the children will be taught singing, instruments and music technology on a termly basis. 4R and 4N will be learning instruments this term. An additional letter has been sent out about instruments to these classes.

P.E. Munchkins

The children will need to come to school wearing their PE kits every Monday for their Munchkin led PE sessions. Each class (except those swimming), will then also have an additional PE session and will need to come to school in the PE kit on this day too. An email has been sent out with these days.  We ask that the children bring an old pair of trainers into school that they can change into for PE, as the field is often muddy. 


This term 4T and 4R will be swimming from the 3rd May to the 28th June (excluding the one week half term). A letter has already been sent with some more information and class teachers will be in contact after the Easter break to ask for parent volunteers.

All school policies including the uniform policy are available on the school website.

If you have any queries or concerns about your child, please contact your child’s teacher, Mrs Howard- Year 4 Lead or Mrs Weaver - Year 4 Assistant Head teacher. 

Many thanks, 

Mrs Howard and the Year 4 team
