Expected Standards in Year 4

The NAHT have put together a set of  objectives for maths, reading and writing. These are what they would expect most children in the year group to be able to achieve by the end of the academic year. Please use the links below to see what the expectations are for your child this year:

Maths, Reading & Writing

Class Timetables

Several parents have asked for a copy of the class timetable to be available on the website.  Timetables vary from week to week and so these are a guideline only.  We recommend that pupils are equipped for any lesson at any time of the week, as timetables are always subject to change.  If you would like to see a typical weekly timetable for your child's class click on the links below.

Spelling words and spelling activity

*Wednesday homework will cover a range of curriculum areas over the year.

Your child is expected to spend no more than 30 minutes on homework EACH night. Ideally, this time should be a consistent time and not fragmented. If there are any problems with your child doing the homework, please send a note in the Homework Diary and we will respond a.s.a.p.

 

If your child has not done the homework or regularly forgets to bring it in on time, they will do their homework during their lunchtime.

*If your child has spent 30 minutes on their homework and it is unfinished, please just write a message in their homework diary – we don’t want to cause any unnecessary stress at home.

Times tables homework  

Each week we will focus on a different times table with a test in the Monday maths lesson. Children confident on their tables should focus on instant recall, division facts & using tables to help work out multiples of ten eg 4 x 5 = 20 so 40 x 5 = 200 or 40 x 50 = 2000.

Some children will be asked to consolidate their x table knowledge before moving on to the more challenging tables.

We hope the children will remember to use x table rock stars, my maths and blast (which they will be learning to use in their computing lesson next week) to support them.

Recommended Reads

For a list of recommended reads for Year 4 click here.

Our author for the year group is Michael Morpurgo. We start exploring one of his titles in the Autumn Term and then plan to read some more throughout the year.

Reminders

Please ensure your child has all the necessary stationery equipment they need for lessons. These should include the following:

  • 2 pencils
  • 30cm ruler
  • Pencil sharpener
  • Colouring pencils
  • Felt tips
  • Eraser
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors
  • Calculator
  • Zip wallet for storing letters and homework
  • When achieved Pen License - 2 Berol blue handwriting pens (no Biros)

PE Kits

Summer – black shorts, white t-shirt, socks and plimsolls/trainers.
Winter – Black tracksuit bottoms and sweatshirts, socks and trainers.

As our timetables are flexible, full PE kits must be in school every day. Yellow letters will be sent home each time a child does not have their full PE kit for lessons. At the moment, Tuesday is the allocated day for PE with the APS coaches. The second session of PE could be on any other day which is why it is essential that kits are kept in lockers. They should be taken home at the end of the week for a wash and returned on the following Monday.

Dental and Doctor Appointments

If possible, could these appointments be made after school hours but if this is unavoidable, please write a note in the Homework Diary.

Parent Help

Please see the class teacher if you are able to help with hearing children read, taking small groups, going on school outings, special days etc. At St Paul's, we are always grateful for any support you can provide.
