Welcome to Year 4!
Thanks for visiting our Year Four page. Below you will find a range of websites that will help your child with their learning. Some of them we already use in school in lessons, so the children will be familiar with them. We hope you have fun!
Dear Year 4 Children and Parents,
Well done to all of you for the wonderful learning you have been doing at home so far! We can see that you have already completed lots of MyMaths tasks and we will be updating the MyMaths website, as well as this class page, with lots more activities. If you have any questions, or if you would like to send us any learning that you are particularly proud of, you can email Mrs Briggs at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mr Kates at email@example.com Please stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all again very soon!

Hello Year 4's,
We really miss seeing you each day and we are busy making plans for the exciting day that we can return to school. This got us thinking about some questions that we would like to ask you so that we can think about how to make your learning as exciting as possible when we are lucky enough to teach you again. It would be amazing if you could talk to your parents about these and then send us an email with your thoughts.
(Maths, English, Science, Art, History, Geography, Music, Design Technology, P.E., R.E.)
(Terrible Tudors, Volcanoes)
If you could email us sometime next week that would be amazing!! (It'll also be great to hear how you all are).
Mr Kates and Mrs Briggs

Try to play some games on Times Table Rock Stars as often as you can to try and improve your speed and move up the whole school leader board. All children have an individual username and password. If you have any difficulties logging on, please contact the school office.
Above is a pack of spelling activities to help you learn and apply all of the Year 3/4 statutory spelling words.
