Welcome to Class 4!


Working as an individual within Class 4, with support from school and home, your child will continue to develop their independence; skills and learning behaviour.


Reading continues to be a vital activity at home and school. Children continue to have a reading book from the classroom and may also decide to have a library book. It is important that they read at least 5 times at home and children may begin now to take on the responsibility for recording pages read with you. They can choose to read out loud, in chorus or echo your reading or may even choose to read silently. Discussions about vocabulary, characters and plots are key at this stage.

Above all, children need to be enjoying what they are reading; plenty of discussions about authors and different types of texts really helps.


Homework is due in on Thursdays each week ready to mark in class together on Friday mornings. Marking work together allows us to discuss and address any misconceptions that have arisen.

Most weeks, this will include a page from their maths homework books, a page from their grammar book and a reading comprehension. This will be posted on Dojo each week.

Homework is linked to work that we have been doing in class but feel free to Dojo if you have any questions.

We will pre-read the reading comprehension text together in class and ‘zap’ key facts ready to answer questions at home.

For more help with maths, have a look on the school’s calculation progression document for guidance about calculation strategies.

For more help with grammar homework, have a look at:


Times tables:

Every Friday, pupils select a times table to test themselves. The aim is for all pupils to know all times tables facts up to 12 x 12 confidently by the end of Year 4.

Children can also choose to come to Froggy Maths on a Friday lunchtime to practise their times tables.

Learning and using these facts is part of the children’s daily maths activities but children may like to practise at home:
