Year 4 Mr Liddell

Hello Year 4 and welcome to a new academic year!

we hold you have all summered well and are refreshed and excited to return to school. We will place a few things in here over the year as well as using Google Classroom and Twitter.

I’m your teacher this year, Mr Liddell and Miss Lang will our Teaching Assistant. 

Reading records will need to be in school EVERY FRIDAY and we ask if you could read with your child as much as possible 3-5 times per week is great. This could be a page, a chapter or a book each day!!!


homework and spellings will be uploaded to Google Classroom on Fridays and we ask if it is submitted no later than Wednesday morning for us to look over. Spellings tests will be on a Wednesday morning. If you have any concerns please come and speak to us. 

It is my first year in year 4 so I’m looking forward to working together with you and your wonderful children. 

Mr Liddell & Miss Lang

At the end of Year 4, children will sit a national times tables test. It is therefore extremely important that times tables are learnt and further consolidated over the course of the year. TT Rockstars is a great resource for this (link above - all children have log in details in their reading records. Children will be tested DAILY.

Spelling tests will take place every Wednesday.  You should learn your spellings as part of your homework each week.  


Here are the spellings that you should know by the end of Year 4.  We will also be learning additional spellings that follow the Year 4 spelling patterns.  

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