    Please remember that to be working at the expected standard for Year 4 children need to know all their multiplication and division facts up to 12 x 12. Year 4 have worked so hard on these this year – keep going!

    English:

    This half term we will be using all of our grammar and punctuation knowledge to create characters and settings. It’s so important that we have exciting language to grab the reader’s attention so please try and read as much as possible at home to help you!

    Year 4 will be continuing to practise the spellings they have been looking at each term.

    The expected end of year result is that a year 4 child will know all of the spellings on the list – if you would like another copy of the list, please ask your class teacher.

    Please help your child to practise these and to use them correctly in sentences.
