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 continue to update this termly.  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 is just three months away now. Please ensure your child spends at least three minutes on Times Tables Rockstars EVERY day. Focus on a different times table each day. 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 also a great learning platform for practising times tables.




As well as looking out for spellings in our weekly email, 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.
