Welcome to Year 4



The teachers in Year 4 are Mrs Baker, Mrs Buckingham and Miss Emblen.

The teaching assistants are Mrs Fernando and Mrs Mooney.


Children are provided with a home reading book at their level. They are expected to read this daily. Please write in your child’s contact book when they have finished reading their book so that the teacher knows to change it. Your child will receive weekly English and Maths homework. This could be based on the learning that they have completed that week in class, but could also be spelling, times tables and number bonds. It is sent home on a Thursday and needs to be returned the following Tuesday.

Learning in English and Maths

The information below provides details about the areas of learning that you child will cover whilst in Year 4. Children are expected to meet these requirements by the end of Year 4. These are based on the guidance from the National Curriculum (September 2014).
