Year 4 is a very exciting year. As well as being exciting, it is also very important and very busy! On this webpage, you will find all of our Y4 expectations. You can use the documents on this page to help maximise your child's education by completing home learning.
LTP - This is our Long Term Plan. This shows you what we are learning, and when. You can use this for many different reasons: asking your child topic related questions, going to the library to get topic related books, and to plan ahead with weekend trips to museums.
Reading/writing/maths expectations - This shows you what is expected from your child in Y4 in these subjects.
Book-band expectations - This shows you the order of the book-bands. You can use this to see where your child is in comparison to government expectations.
Common exception words - These words are our common exception words. These are words that we can't apply our phonic knowledge to. By the end of Y4, the children are expected to be able to spell and use these.
Knowledge organisers - For our History, Geography, and Science topics we have knowledge organisers. These contain all of the essential information in the one place. They organise our knowledge!
Please find the documents below.
Essential Y4 documents
The quick recall of multiplication and division facts (times tables) is essential for all children. The ability to recall these facts quickly enables children to answer related questions with ease.
By the end of Year 4, the children should know all of their multiplication and division facts.
The Year 4 times tables test, also known as the Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) is a new assessment introduced by the government in 2017 that was scheduled to be rolled out across England and Wales in 2020. According to the UK government website, the test is designed to determine each child’s ability to learn and remember their times tables fluently.
The Year 4 times tables test is usually taken by pupils toward the end of Year 4.
