Welcome to a brand new year in Year 4. The Year 4 team are excited to have started a new term with our classes, in 'nearly normal' circumstances, compared to the last 18 months! We are looking forward to a busy, but exciting year ahead and getting to know our new children.
Below you will find a range of websites and resources 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 look forward to meeting you all soon!
Your Year 4 team, this year, consists of Mrs Fatile, Miss Fossey, Mrs Arnold and Mrs Todd.
If you need to contact us at any point, please contact the school office to arrange a meeting with us.
Homework will be set weekly in Year 4 and will be uploaded to this section of the class page. Please check back each week to see any new tasks which have been set for you.
We will be working hard to learn our times tables, as we have a national assessment at the end of this year, so your support at home to assist us would be greatly appreciated. Each week your child will bring home spellings and times tables / Maths homework to do and we ask that you hear your child read regularly, signing their Reading Record book, so that we can progress them through the reading scheme. Children are also free to bring a reading book of their own choice in school, from home, and will also have access to the library in the coming weeks. Any homework set needs to be sent in to school by the following Wednesday.
If you look at the powerpoint below, it will remind you how to log in to Mymaths.
If you do not know your MyMaths login, please ask your teacher or send a message to the class email, so we can send you the login details.

Try to play some games on Times Table Rock Stars as often as you can to improve your speed and move up the whole school leader board! All children have an individual username and password.
