Welcome to Year 4! 

We are Miss Pearson and Mr Goan and we are looking forward to being your teachers this year. We cannot wait to help you learn and give you lots of wonderful learning experiences.   

  • We have P.E on a Wednesday so please remember your kit every week. 
  •  Every Friday homework will be given out with the expectation that it is returned for the following Wednesday at the latest.  
  • Spellings will be tested on a Friday and new ones will be given out at the same time, so you have a whole week to practice. 

Reading and Home Learning 

Reading at home and sharing a book with your child is vital! Your child will be bringing a book home every Friday and we ask that you spend around 10-15 minutes each night sharing a book with your child and then asking them questions based on their book. Why? How do you know? and Explain? are excellent questions to use to get your child really thinking about what they have read. 

Times tables 

Your child will be sent home with the times tables up to 12 x 12. Please ensure that these are practised with your child as this will assist them when we complete our times tables test in June.  


For homework in year 4, your child will have a homework menu for English (front of the book) and Maths (back of the book). Each week your child will choose an activity to do, one Maths and one English. Then they tick the one they have done on their sheet. The following week they will choose one Maths and one English activity to do and so on. 

Many thanks for your continued support, we look forward to getting to know you,  

Miss Pearson and Mr Goan
