Year 4 information for parents
Term 1 - Endangered
Children will receive spelling lists at the start of every term. Spelling tests will usually be on a Thursday.
Each week the spellings will focus on a different spelling rule. In addition to this, children will also be learning tricky words from Year 3/4 list from the National Curriculum.
Please click on the correct group for the spelling list for this term:
MyMaths - Maths homework will be set weekly on MyMaths. The children can use this website to practise skills taught in class. Log-in details are available from the class teacher.
Times tables - Towards the end of Year 4 children will sit the government table assessment consisting of 25 questions. Children will have 6 seconds per question. It will be carried out on either a laptop or iPad which the child will get to choose. They will have practice opportunities in school.
Children are expected to know all times table facts up to 12 x 12. Regular practice of these at home would be really beneficial. To support this in school, we use the Rainbow Maths target system and Times Table Rockstars. During the term, children are tested on their times table knowledge. Once they have achieved all questions correct within 5 minutes, pupils will move on to the next colour band. By the end of Year 4, children should have completed their Silver Rainbow Maths Certificate. Rainbow Maths practice sheets are available from your class teacher if needed.
Useful maths websites for Year 4:
