We are looking forward to seeing all pupils on Tuesday September 7th when pupils return after the summer holidays. The purpose of this leaflet is to provide parents and carers about your child’s learning as they start a new year group.

Year 4 Staff

YEAR 4EMS/AB is Miss Maxwelll-Strut (Mon - Thurs) & Mrs Bradnum (Friday) supported by Teaching Assistant Mrs Knapton.

Year 4KJ  will be taught by Miss Johnson who is supported by Teaching Assistant  Mrs Dickinson.

The Year 4 Curriculum


Each half term Year 6 will be focus on a high quality book where they will continue to learn the skills of fluency & comprehension.  This is also used as a stimulus to develop pupils writing skills in the different genres.

Accelerated Reading will continue next academic year where pupils will regularly choose books from our school library or reading corners where they can read at school and at home. All pupils are given a username and password to answer a quiz on completion of the book to check their understanding.



Pupils are taught Maths skills on a daily basis which develops their fluency, problem solving & reasoning skills. It is important that they know their times tables. All pupils have access to TimesTables Rockstars to help them practice.


Each term or half term pupils will have the opportunity to learn new knowledge and skills through Humanities & or Science.

    We endeavour to support pupils learning by going on school trips. Whether these are local trips, such as visits to Batley Library, or further afield, we will provide information nearer the time.  Outdoor learning for Year 4 will take place in Summer 2.


Pupils will participate in PE every week using the hall or outside facilities. Please ensure that pupils wear the correct clothing of black shorts, white t-shirt, suitable footwear & no jewellery.  Pupils will have opportunities throughout the year to attend sporting competitions including our annual sports day. There is a range of after school clubs that children can also attend throughout the year.


Year 4 Multiplication Test:

The purpose of the Multiplication Test is to determine whether pupils can recall their times tables fluently, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It will help schools to identify pupils who have not yet mastered their times tables, so that additional support can be provided. The test will be delivered as an online, on-screen digital assessment. Under standard administration, the check will take each pupil less than 5 minutes to complete.

We encourage pupils to use this website to devlop rapid recall of multiplication facts:




Pupils will continue to receive homework every Wednesday which needs completing & handed in the following Monday.



The school communicates in a number of ways to keep parents & guardians up to date. If you do not yet downloaded the school ping app to your smart phone, then please speak to the school office for further information.

The school website is updated regularly and paper copies of newsletters are given to children.
