Welcome to Y4 Aspen



Hi Year 4,


We hope you have all had a relaxing, fun Easter break and are now ready for all of the exciting challenges for the Summer term in Year 4. 

During this year, we will place key information on this class page and Twitter to share what we've been getting up to each week!


Weekly Reminders


Monday - Thursday - Mrs Hopewell

Friday - Mrs Lawrence

We will also have our teaching assistant, Miss Bradbury, working with us all week.


P.E. will be on Thursdays so we ask that children come to school wearing their PE kits. 


We ask that reading records are in school EVERYDAY. They will be written in periodically throughout the week and will be checked on Fridays. We ask that children read a minimum of 3 times a week and ask that a parent signs their child's book to state this.


Homework and spellings will be given out on Fridays in BOOKS and needs to be returned on the following Wednesday. Spelling tests will also be on Wednesday mornings. Please get in contact with us if you have any problems regarding home learning. Please note that after reviewing how we send home homework we have now decided to move away from Google Classroom and only use homework books. 


If there are changes to the weekly routine or there are any issues that arise, please let us know by contacting school either by phone or email- 


Mrs Hopewell, Mrs Lawrence & Miss Bradbury

Breathing techniques

Sometimes, we all get a bit frustrated and need to calm down a little. In school, we practise a range of different breathing techniques to help us regulate our emotions. These are a few of our favourites.

Here is a copy of the Year 4 expectations - this covers what children will be learning throughout the year in Reading, Writing and Maths.

Methods In Maths


We understand that the mathematical methods taught in school may be different from what adults at home know and use. Use this link to find videos that explain the methods taught in school for each operation.

Here is a copy of the new Numeracy Framework for Y4 to help you understand what your child will be learning and when.
