Welcome to Year 4!  We are looking forward to a fantastic year ahead.  Below are a few helpful reminders to make this year as successful as possible:



Pupils are expected to read every night and record their progress in their reading records.  Please listen to your child read two/three times a week and sign their reading record.   These will be checked every morning.  Pupils will read with a member of staff on a regular basis.

Times Tables

Year 4 children are expected to know all their times tables, up to 12 x 12 (and division facts) by the end of the year.  Times tables will be tested each week.  Please help your child to learn their times tables so they can achieve this important year 4 objective by the end of the academic year.


Spellings will be given out and tested each week.  Please encourage your child to learn their spelling words at home.  The ‘Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check’ method is a great way to practise.  Children should bring their spelling books to school every day.  Complete Year 4 spelling lists can be found on our website. 

P.E.: We have P.E. every Thursday. P.E. kits should include suitable footwear (trainers or plimsolls), t-shirts (in their house colours) and shorts or track suit bottoms.


Year 4 receive weekly violin lessons from a Wandsworth Music specialist.  We perform a concert to the school and parents each term.  Please encourage your child to practise the violin at home each week.

If you have any further questions about your child’s education please do not hesitate to speak to me in person.
