Year 4 Mr Rushe

Welcome to Year 4!


Hi everyone, I hope you have all had a great break and are ready for the year ahead. I know you are all probably feeling a little apprehensive about returning to school but we are all in the same boat. We will be doing a lot of "My Happy Mind" and relaxation techniques to help us all adjust.


I have attached a picture of the layout of our classroom, you will notice we are all sitting in rows to try and reduce face to face contact. Myself and Miss Baker look forward to seeing you all soon.


Mr Rushe & Miss Baker :)

Home Learning Tasks for WB 27.04.20

Home Learning Tasks for WB 20.04.2020

Big Maths Music!

I know you'll be missing Big Maths so much, so use this music to give yourself enough time to complete each column!
Below, you will find activities for your child to do at home. We would like you to complete the home learning activity linked to our next topic, practise statutory spellings for year 3 and 4 and complete the maths times table challenges. The children know how to complete the maths times table challenges - children are allowed 2 minutes for each column and the Big Maths music can be used for this.  Please do not move on to the next challenge until full marks are achieved on the whole sheet, twice in a row! 

Go-To Art Activities

Here are a range of fun Art activities that you can try out at home! 

Welcome to the 4SB page! In Year 4, we work hard, challenge ourselves and learn from each other. Here is a copy of the Year 4 expectations - this covers what children will be learning throughout the year in Reading, Writing and Maths. If you have any questions about our curriculum, or anything else, please feel free to see Mrs Bevington after school!

Mindset Matters!

Please watch our video about how we cope when faced with a wobble! We use the 5Bs!

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.
