P.E. is now on Tuesday P.M. (Basketball) and Friday P.M. (Badminton) - please send your child into school wearing full PE kit but consider the weather and ensure they have extra layers for playtimes, and during the day. 

Water bottles  
Please clean the bottle each evening and send in with fresh water daily - not juice.
This helps us adhere to current safety regulations. Sun cream may now need to be applied in the morning as the weather improves. A hat will also provide some protection from the sun.


Supporting your child’s learning

Our Year 4 webpage contains links and guidance to involve you in your child's school learning journey. We very much view you as our team. Without your support, our aims are harder to achieve. This can be done through practising times tables, spellings and reading together. 


We ask that children read for at least 30 minutes five times each week. Books sent home do not have to be completed all at once, and we strongly encourage an equal amount of questioning to ensure the text and vocabulary has been understood. If you are not sure how you can do this, please ask and look at this link .

We have added a document that contains recommended reads for Year 4 children.  We will do our best to update this as the year progresses. Please let us know if there is a book that your child has really enjoyed and wish to have added to this document.

We have found a website that contains a large number of book recommendations for all year groups.  It is called 'The Reader Teacher' and can be located at Please let us know what you think of the recommendations.

Remember that when your child has read a book that they can complete a reading comprehension quiz on Accelerated Reader
If you feel your child needs more books than given, please look at the Cheshire Libraries catologue of online books.  Membership will be required.

Freckle and Online Platforms

The Multiplication Check will take place in June 2024. Please ensure your child spends at least three minutes on Times Tables Rockstars EVERY day. Focus on times tables in this order: x2, x5, x10, then x3 and x4, followed by x6 and x8, and lastly x9, x11, x7 and x12 times tables. Regular practice will ensure success.

Each week we ask that your child uses Freckle. Daily use is recommended, with Adaptive Maths, Fact Practice and Focus Skills accessed across the week. Tasks set by your teacher will appear in Rucksack. These will often need completing before any other Freckle questions can be answered. Times Table Rockstars is a great learning platform for practising times tables.




As well as looking out for spellings in our weekly email and the page section at the bottom of this webpage, by the end of Year 4 pupils are expected to read and spell the words listed below. Please give your child the best chance at learning these by choosing a few each week and practising how to read and spell these. The Year 1 and 2 Spelling List is also available to view in the Documents section at the bottom of this page.
