Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!


Hello and welcome to 4B! Our class is made up of 29 lovely children taught by me, Miss Burton. To lend us a helping hand we have Mrs Moores and Mrs Hall!



Children are responsible for their own belongings and are expected to bring their book bag to school every day. Children will bring home their reading books and bring them back the next day. They are expected to read for about 10 minutes each evening. Don't forget to fill in their reading record so they can get their team reading token each week. The children choose their own book from our exciting range of books in the book corner. There are also some 'Miss Burton recommends' books linked to our class learning. 



On Tuesdays and Thursdays, children will bring home their spelling journal to practice their spellings. They will have a task inside to complete or they can choose a strategy which best helps them to learn their spellings . At the front of their spelling journal is a 'spelling menu' that lists the words they will be learning each week. 


PE is on a Tuesday and Friday and children are expected to have a full kit which is left in school. PE kits will be sent home at the end of each term to be washed. 


Times tables

At the end of year 4 the children will be sitting their times table test. They are expected to know all their times tables up to 12 X 12 fluently. Please support us by practicing on times tables rock stars and see who hits the top of the leaderboard!


Homework Club

Homework will be given out on a Friday and expected to be handed in on the following Wednesday. Our homework club day is Monday where children can go to complete their homework instead of taking it home. 


We are all looking forward to a fun filled year!!
