See the detailed curriculum maps for individual subject coverage each half term.

Could you please ensure that all school uniform, including PE kit is clearly labelled so that missing items get returned. The class will have PE on a Tuesday afternoon in the autumn term.


Homework will be given out every Friday to be checked the following Wednesday.

Failure to complete or present homework on the due date will result in your child completing it in their break times at school. In Year 4 it is expected that all children read for at least 15 minutes every evening to an adult. We also accept an adult reading to their child during this time if you wish. This reading time must be recorded in their reading records to be checked weekly at school. Children will also be sent home with weekly times tables and spellings to be tested every Wednesday. Please ensure that these are being practised at home. An additional task sheet will be stuck into your child’s homework book. Complete one of these tasks once a week showing evidence of it in the homework book.


If there is anything you would like to ask me about in regards to your child please do not hesitate to catch me at the end of the day to arrange an appointment.

Alternatively, you may contact the office to arrange an appointment this way.

Kind regards,
Miss Barrett
