Year 4

Dear Parents and Children,

We are looking forward to an exciting year. In Year 4, your child will continue to develop their skills and knowledge in a fun and creative way, through Evelyn’s ARCS Curriculum. You can find out what we’ll be learning, and when, by looking at the Curriculum section of the website.


Our class routine is as follows:

Library Books

Library sessions will take place every Thursday morning. Children will have the opportunity to browse through the genres and select a book of their choice. It’s important that every child enjoys this session. Therefore, they need to bring back their book each week, so it can be replaced with a new one. However, if they wish to keep their book for more than a week, they will still be able to go to the session and enjoy some time in the library reading a book.

Reading Books

Children will be given a reading book every Friday and will be listened to on a weekly basis in school. Please support your child with their reading and if possible, spend time listening to them. Also remember, even at this age, children enjoy listening to adults read. We have a class reader, which is read to them daily and they learn so much about reading from how the book is read to them. Reading books need to be returned every Friday, so they can be changed. Please speak to a member of staff if you have any questions regarding reading.


P.E. Lessons

Lessons take place on Friday. Children should come into school in their P.E. kit, which should be a red or white t-shirt and red or black shorts. Hoodies or school Jumpers will be needed when the weather gets cooler, along with red or black jogger bottoms. Please do not use a football kit to replace a P.E. kit.



We are fortunate in Year 4 to be able to learn a musical instrument. Every Monday the children will be learning how to play the ukulele. It’s going to be a lovely weekly session and a fun start to the week.



Every Friday children will be given spellings to learn, ready for the following Friday’s spelling test. Spellings can be practised on ‘Spelling Frame’. Times tables will also be tested on a Friday. Homework will alternate between English and Maths. Both homework and spellings will be assigned on Seesaw.

Please see a member of staff if you have any questions regarding homework.


Finally, please ensure your child’s name is written inside their jumpers, jogging tops, hoodies and coats. We want to ensure everything your child owns is never lost. Our school's lost property box fills up rapidly when items aren’t named.



Thank you in advance for your support. We very much look forward to working in partnership with you.
