Year 4

Introduction

Welcome to Year 4!

 Here you will find out useful information about our Year 4 curriculum, including routines, expectations and the exciting learning that is taking place. 

In Year 4, we build on the children’s learning from previous years and continue to nurture and encourage the feelings of independent thinking, learning and decision-making. Year 4 is an exciting Year where the children will experience many learning experiences including trips to Kew Gardens, the Verulamium Museum, creating electric circuits, going on an overnight residential trip, a production and so much more.

To support the children in being successful learners, we have high expectations and encourage the children to:

  • Follow our Academy rules
  • Be excellent learners by showing great relationships, reflectiveness, resourceful, take risks and to be resilient in their learning;
  • Work hard, independently and to always try their best with their learning;
  • Be punctual and to have excellent attendance to ensure that there are no gaps in your child’s learning
  • Be kind, always
  • Enjoy their time in Year 4

Each day, in Year 4, we strive to embed our Academy values and believe strongly in our Academy motto that “Everybody Matters at Chepping View” and especially in Year 4.

We cannot wait to embark on this exciting journey with you.

Curriculum Overview

The content of our Year 4 curriculum excites, challenges and inspires our pupils to achieve the absolute best they can. For a more detailed overview, please see the Year 4 curriculum overview below.

Reading List

Reading for pleasure is vitally important and most important indicator of a child's future success.  To ensure success, please

  • Encourage your child’s love of books by reading with them at home for at least 10-20 minutes every day
  • Ensure they read regularly and widely across different genres.
  • Ask them to tell you what they are reading about.
  • Ask ‘why’ and ‘how’ questions will also aid their understanding. 

 Below is a useful list of recommended books that your child can read and enjoy.

 

 Multiplication Table Check

During Year 4, the children will practise and learn all their multiplication facts, including division facts, up 12 x 12. This is required in order to be successful in Maths, as times tables are the building blocks of Maths and with multiplication facts mastered, the doors to many other areas of Maths become unlocked!   Throughout the year, pupils will be encouraged to build up an accurate and speedy recall of their times tables in readiness for the Year 4 National Multiplication Times Table Check which takes place in June.

What is the Year 4 Times Tables Check?

The Year 4 Times Tables Check is an annual check to see if Year 4 pupils in England and Wales have a good level of times tables knowledge.  Primary-school children are expected to know all their times tables up to 12x12. Under the current National Curriculum, children are supposed to know their times tables by the end of Year 4.

Please support your child in practising and recalling their times tables at speed through regular practise on Times Tables Rockstar.

Some other ways to help:

  • Hanging up a times table sheet and quizzing regularly
  • Teaching and learning some tricks, such as doubling or halving
  • Listening to some fun songs that rhyme the numbers
  • Drawing a Waldorf multiplication flower or other visual aids
  • Playing fun times tables games and using times table activities, such as puzzles or bingo
