Year 4 2022 - 2023
Welcome to the Year 4 Class Page.
Welcome to Year 4.
My name is Miss Page and I am your child's teacher this year, with support from Miss Bibby. I am looking forward to helping your child grow and develop their skills and knowledge with exciting learning opportunities.
I am an experienced teacher who has taught in both KS1 and KS2. I enjoy teaching all subjects but my favourite subjects are Art and English.I am also school SENDCo, working to support children with special educational needs across the school.
I hope that this page will keep parents and carers up to date with everything that is happening in Year 4. I am always happy to speak to parents and carers regarding any questions or concerns they may have, so feel free to see me after school if you do need to talk, or contact the office to arrange an appointment.

Reading Books will be issued home every Tuesday and Thursday for you to share and enjoy daily with your child. Therefore reading books must be returned to school every Tuesday and Thursday in order for us to change your child’s reading book. Reading records must be signed and dated in order for us to change books. Please note, any books not signed, will not be changed. A record of all books issued, including when changed, is kept to help us monitor reading progression.

Please check out the details at the bottom of the page how to help with maths and reading.
How to help with Maths and Reading:
Have fun with reading. Let your child choose what they read and enjoy it together. Short or long, it’s time well spent.
Don’t worry about what your children are reading: recipes, cereal packets … it’s all useful! Keep books and other reading materials close by.
Reading to children of all ages is helpful. Ask lots of questions: who, what, where, when and why and ask them to summarise when you’ve finished.
When you see your child reading, praise them: “I love to see you reading!”

Multiplication tables check.
Towards the end of Year 4, children will take part in a timetable check. The purpose of the check is to determine whether your child can fluently recall their times tables up to 12, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It will also help your child’s school to identify if your child may need additional support.
It is an on-screen check consisting of 25 times table questions. Your child will be able to answer 3 practice questions before taking the actual check. They will then have 6 seconds to answer each question. On average, the check should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete.

Maths can be a part of your everyday activities through games, stories and conversation! You don’t need to have a separate maths lesson or activity. Why not count plates as you lay the table or do a fun addition quiz?
Board games like Snakes and Ladders or other games with numbered spaces can be great for Maths learning. You can even make your own!
Meals and snack times can be great to teach lots of concepts, like sharing, talking about time, counting how many carrots you have, estimating the number of beans or comparing sizes of potatoes.
Use maths words in conversation and play, talking about size (“Which is bigger?”), order (“Which is first?”), shapes and more.
Stories can be great opportunities for maths learning. Check out mathsthroughstories or you can use books you have at home!
Use manipulatives like bricks or toys of different sizes or amounts to support learning. Measuring, building, puzzles, sorting and patterns can be great!
When you see you child practising maths in everyday tasks, praise them!
