In Year 4, many children can access free choice reading books from our class or whole school library. Children will be heard read as often as possible in school but we encourage them to read a few pages every night at home. Please record when your child has read to you in their reading record. Reading logs will be checked each Friday.
The children also have access to ReadingPlus, we would like for the children to aim to access this for 15 minutes each weekday evening and they will be given time in school, regular use of this site will give them the opportunity to extend their understanding of different types of text, vocabulary and comprehension.
Please make sure your child brings in their reading record and reading books to school everyday.
Children also have access to Timestables Rockstars- an online learning platform to support with rapid recall of known multiplication facts. This software will support the children as they head towards completing their Multiplication Check in the summer term. Please ensure your child accesses Timestables Rockstars for 5 minutes each day.
Our English lessons are based on a half termly book.

To further develop children’s understanding of places of worship from faiths other than Christianity e.g. Islam, Sikhism, Hinduism etc.
