Year 4 Curriculum Map

 Homework: We set homework termly to be given in the final week of term. The homework is linked to our termly topics to complement your child's learning. There will be a series of projects for your child to choose from; it is up to you and your child how much homework to undertake; however any homework set is linked to what they will be learning in school.

In addition to this, we would strongly encourage parents or carers to practice times tables with your child regularly as they are expected to know all multiplications up to 12 by the end of the year.



All children are expected to read at home at least three times a week. Children should give their reading books in daily and any reading completed with parents should be recorded in their reading records. Once a book has been set children will need to complete a comprehension, this allows staff to assess what book level to move your child to next.
