Year 4 2022 - 2023

Mrs Shackleton

Welcome to the Year 4 Class Page!

This year, Ms Quinn will be our Year 4 teaching assistant and Mrs Wood will be teaching the class every Tuesday. As a team, we look forward to working with your child and supporting them in their learning.

For this term, homework will be handed out on a Wednesday and collected back in on the following Monday. There will be a piece of Maths and English each week, Some Maths homework will be allocated on TTRS. Spellings will also be given out on a Monday and a spelling test will take place each Friday. It would be greatly appreciated if you could support your child at home when completing any homework tasks and please reach out to me if you need further clarification. 


Throughout the week, the children will have guided reading sessions in groups. Additionally, each child will have an independent reading book, which should be read regularly at home. Due to the importance of reading at this stage of the children’s development, I would like to highlight the significance of providing opportunities for reading at home. I encourage parents to listen to their children read aloud at home, and to write comments about their child’s reading in their reading records. Reading books will be changed when a parent/guardian have checked that their child has finished their book. Ms Quinn and I will closely monitor the children’s reading ability and ensure reading books match their ability, and that reading records are checked regularly. 

Times Tables

Times tables knowledge is one of the key areas of the Mathematics National Curriculum for Year 4. The children have made good progress with their times tables in Year 3, and this will be further developed throughout this year as one of our key focuses. Parents are encouraged to support this through ongoing times tables practice at home, to help their children progress further. TTRockstars is a resource provided through school that can be accessed to assist with practice at home and again their logins have not changed so the children should be able to access the resource independently. If your child needs their password again, please get in touch and I will send a copy home with them. 


For the Spring Term, Year 4’s P.E. day will be Monday, they will also have Dance on a Thursday.  A reminder that a full PE kit is required, long hair must be tied back and all jewellery removed. 

If you have any further questions or concerns you wish to discuss, feel free to phone school or email me at

I look forward to working with your child and supporting them throughout this academic year.

Thank you for your contunied supported,

Mrs Shackleton
