Welcome to Year 4
The Year 4 team includes: Mr Blount-Hogg (Edinburgh) , Miss Armstrong & Miss Riley (Dublin) and Ms Abergel (Sheffield)
Look our for our tri-weekly maths newsletter - it keeps you up-to-date with the latest units of work that your child is studying, and gives you helpful tips on how you can help at home.
This term, we'll be exploring place value, formal methods of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, all whilst investigating graphs, decimals and place value.
The Year 4 teachers are relentless when it comes to times tables. We want to be the fastest year group in the school to respond to times table questions.
Please help your child to learn all the times tables up to 12 x 12 by asking them questions at home (just throw in a "What's 7 x 5?" whilst you're cooking tea; or a "What's 9 x 4"? on the school run...).
Here are a few websites that the children are familiar with that they can access from home to help them learn their times tables:
Espresso (Your child should know the login details - if not, come and see us.)
S W I M M I N G
Every Wednesday morning - please ensure your child brings their Swimming Kit to school.
U K U L E L E
The Year 4 curriculum continues to be enriched with ukulele practice every Wednesday afternoon.
In addition to swimming, Year 4 will have a P.E lesson every week - please ensure that their full PE kit is in school every week. It can be taken home to be washed at the weekend or at the end of each term.

The children take a reading book home every night. They must read at home to an adult and have their reading record signed at least twice per week.
H O M E W O R K
Topic homework is set as a project at the beginning of each term. It is due in just before the end of the term so that the whole class can celebrate their homework together. You will find the information about this in the letter that was sent home.
Maths homework will be sent home every Friday and will be due in the following Friday.
