Year 4 Overview

Year 4 Overview

Hello Year 4! We've put together a list of some of the expectations for this year, as well as some of the important things you need to remember. If you have any questions, make sure to see either Mr Dilks or Miss Ingham!



  • Each week, you will be given two homework tasks. This will include one Maths activity and one from another subject. 
  • Your homework activities will be set every Thursday and you will have until Tuesday of the following week to complete and hand in your work.
  • Homework must be completed neatly, using a pencil (unless online) and must be returned in the correct folder. 
  • You must make sure that you take responsibility for your homework and see Mr Dilks or Miss Ingham if you are stuck. 
  • If you struggle to get your homework finished before the deadline, you can complete it at Homework Club on a Thursday lunchtime. 


  • Each week, on Friday, you will be given a list of spellings to learn.
  • You will have one full week to learn your spellings for a test the following Friday.
  • Spellings will be stuck into homework diaries each week on Friday and you can practise them in your yellow book using whatever methods you wish. 

Times Tables:

  • In Year 4, we expect that by the end of the year you should be confident with all of your times tables up to 12.
  • We will spend time in school practising times tables but it is essential that you spend some time at home each week practising your times tables using TT Rockstars. 
  • In addition to this, you may also wish to use Hit The Button to practice a more specific times table. 
  • Tests will take place every few weeks to check where you are with your learning. 


  • Each week, we expect you to read for at least 30 minutes whilst you are away from school (this doesn't have to be all in one go!)
  • You can read to an adult or you can read on your own. Try to discuss what you have read with an adult though.
  • If you are reading independently, write down the name of the book you are reading and the pages you've read in your Homework Diary.
  • You must get an adult to sign your diary every week as evidence that you have read.

Homework Diaries:

  • Homework diaries are an important communication tool for you to use. 
  • Make sure you bring your diary to school each day.


  • Throughout Year 4, we focus a lot on making sure that our handwriting and presentation are neat. Specifically, we will work on developing our use of 'cursive' handwriting.
  • Individuals who demonstrate consistently neat handwriting will receive a handwriting pen!
