Welcome to Year 4

Year 4 consists of:

In Year 4, we continue to build upon the excellent learning started in Year 3 preparing your child for life in Upper Key Stage 2.  We enhance the learning experience through a range of learning journeys:

Term 1 - Why Risk Living Near a Volcano?

Term 2 - How did the Romans Change Britain?

Term 3 - Who were the Anglo-Saxons and how do we know what was Important to them?

Term 4 - What did the Vikings want and how did Alfred stop them from getting it?

Term 5 - What makes the Amazon so Biodiverse?

             - How Biodiverse is Friston Forest?

Term 6 - How does our Lifestyle affect our Health?

We hope that you will support your child at home by: reading with them daily for at least 10 minutes, spending time supporting their home learning including learning the spellings listed below and practising their fluency with multiplication tables.

 Spelling practice: Spellings will be given out to the children on Fridays. At home they should use the Cradle Hill 8 strategies to support their learning of the words (in pink books). Spelling lessons and games take place at school weekly.

Further practice with spelling at the individual level for your child can be found on Doodle.

Multiplication Tables

Children are expected to be fluent in their multiplication tables by the end of Year 4 and will take the statutory Multiplication Check (MTC) in June 2023. 

The best way to prepare your child for this is through regular use of TTRockstars. The Studio game allows them to increase speed of recall. The Sound Check game mimics the MTC.



  • Reading: Reading for pleasure for a minimum of 10 minutes each day, preferably with an adult. Please click on the image below to see our letter about the importance of reading at home and how this will be celebrated in Year Four.
