Year 4 Curriculum

PE Information

PE days are on Mondays and Thursdays. 

We will be working with Manchester this half term. 

At Haslam Park the kit is as follows:

White tee shirt 

School sweatshirt or cardigan (in colder months) 

Black bottoms (leggings, jogging bottoms or shorts) 

Black trainers

No jewellery is allowed on P.E days, this includes stud earrings for girls. 



Homework is set weekly on Spelling Shed, TT Rockstars and on occasion, Purple Mash. 

All children will be heard reading by an adult in class once a week, but it is important that children read at home at a minimum of 3 times a week and their reading diary is signed. 


Times Tables Test

Across the country, all children in Year 4 will undergo a a times tables test. We are practicing multiple times a week in school but it is highly suggested that children also log on to TT Rockstars or Purple Mash and practice at home. (login details should be stuck in the back of reading journals)
