Year 4



Hello and welcome to the Year 4 class page! 

Below are some key things to remember, hopefully this page gives you an overview of what we will be getting up to in school.


I am always available before and after school if you have any questions or queries.

Thank you,

Miss Chawner-Bowers. 




Our Class Saint is St Vincent De Paul.

Our class saint is St Vincent De Paul. 

He inspires us to use our Catholic Social Teaching of looking after the poor and vulnerable. 

We will be learning all about St Vincent's life and how we can learn to use our gifts and talents to support those who are unable to support themselves.

In year four, the children will take part in a multiplication check. This will take place during the Summer term. Please make sure that your child is practicing their times tables as often as possible!


At St Mary's we love to read! We want to promote a love of reading in all of our children. Try to encourage children to read for pleasure. Choose books that interest your child and encourage them to read to you.

Year 3 and Year 4 Curriculum and Expectations


With the new National Curriculum, the Department for Education has produced new expectations for the end of each curriculum year. These will replace the old system of levels and provide you as parents with a clear idea of what the children should be achieving at the end of the year.

Below you will find the expectations for Year 3 and Year 4  in Reading, Writing and Mathematics. We have also produced ‘deepening’ targets for parents to show you the targets that the children will be working towards if they have met all of the ‘expected’ targets to master their learning skills.


As a school we shall report your child’s progress against these end of year expectations at parents' evenings during the year. The following terms will be used:

·         Your child is not on track to meet the end of year national expectations.

·         Your child is on track to meet the end of year national expectations .

·         Your child is on track to exceed the end of year national expectations.


Any extra support you can provide in helping your child or children to achieve these will benefit them greatly.
