Year 4

Year 4 presentation for Parents – MTC
Curriculum Map – Autumn 1 2023
Adults are expected to read with their child every day and sign and date their reading record.  We encourage adults to take the time to talk about the story, pictures new words in the book and make connections to real life. The reading books will be changed every week.  Children also visit the library where they will be able to choose a library book to read for pleasure.
We base our writing on a variety of text genres.  Children will learn how to write and spell accurately and write for a range of purposes. 
In year 4 we encourage children to use their knowledge of number to solve more challenging questions.  Children are supported in their learning with concrete objects.
Times Tables
It is very important that your child can quickly recall their times tables facts to 12×12. All Year 4 pupils have to complete a national, statutory Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) in June.
The children are signed up to Times Tables Rock Stars and can access this from any device at home. Children have usernames and passwords and are expected to use TT Rockstars every week to practice their times tables online.

Educational visits
There will also be many exciting experiences for Year 4 this term. This includes: Verulamium Museum, Tate Britain, Sports Day and picnic.
Keeping in touch
We are pleased that we are able to meet and greet parents/carers at the beginning and end of the school day.  If there is a concern then please speak to us.  We believe strongly in working as a team to create good outcomes for all children.
PE is on Thursday and Friday. Please remember that children should only be wearing their school uniform to school and not PE kit. Your child’s PE kit must be brought to school in a bag. This should come to school on the first day PE takes place and return after their second session that week for washing. The school PE kit consists of black shorts with a plain white top (no slogans or images) and black track suits can be worn when it is cold. Hair needs to be tied back. (White shorts can still be worn until the end of this academic year).
Homework is given out on Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. The weekly spelling test takes place on Thursday.
Punctuality matters
Children need to be in school at 8:40am every day. Being in school at the right time will ensure your child has the time they need to unpack and be ready to learn.
