Welcome to Year 4
The Year 4 team would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and outline some of the exciting learning that will be taking place this year. We aim to challenge the children to become independent learners as well as provide opportunities to develop team work. We explore a range of possibilities throughout the year and particularly on our trip to Thorpe Woodlands. We thank you, in advance, for your support throughout the year. It really does make a difference!

Year 4 pupils undertake the multiplication tables check in June. The purpose of the check is to make sure the times tables knowledge is at the expected level. It is an online test were the pupils are asked 25 questions on times tables 2 to 12.
Below is a recommended list of books for Year 4 children, we have copies of these in school and will be looking at a variety of them throughout the year. Please feel free to discuss these with your child/encourage them to read these books or others by these authors.
