Important information

Class timetable:

Monday: Humanities and French

Tuesday: PE

Wednesday: Science 

Thursday: Library, Art/Design and Technology

Friday: PE


All children in year 4 will have daily maths, literacy, reading, spelling and handwriting lessons. 

  • PE kits should be in school everyday, children will be expected to wear the school PE uniform during PE lessons. Jewelry must be removed and long hair should be tied back for safety. 
  • Our class library session will be on Thursday afternoons. Children will need to bring their library books to school to change on a regular basis. 
  • We will be able to change children's Accelerated Reading Books during afternoon sessions. Children are expected to go to the school library independently to change their book once quizzed. 



The class expectation is that children should be reading at home on a daily basis. The children will have a 'Reading record' book, this should be signed by an adult at home each time the child reads. Children will also read with adults in class. It is important to encourage children's reading as this supports their literacy development, writing style and use of interesting vocabulary in writing.


At the beginning of each topic, children will bring home a homework grid. This will give the children a range of choices as to how they would like to present their topic related homework. This could include: art work, research, fact finding, reading, walks, posters, writing a song, etc. The children would have the half term to produce their chosen work and to bring it into school to share and present to the class. 

Children will also have regular spelling and handwriting homework to complete. 

Children need to be in school and on time every day ~Make sure you read the Privacy Notice on the Key Information Page~ Please read the updated Behaviour Policy in the Key Information section
