Welcome to Year 4 at Derwent Road.  Please find below information about your child’s learning topics this half term, including learning logs and topic leaflets.  Please see our specific class pages for photos and individual class learning journeys.



Homework Expectations


Spelling tasks and a maths activity will be handed out every Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. This will start on Friday 13th September 2019.

Reading books come home daily. Children should read with an adult as often as possible but at least 4 times per week.

Times Tables - Year 4 children are expected to know their times tables up to 12 x 12 by the end of the year. Children will sit a standardised government test in June 2020. In preparation for this, please help your child to learn their times tables. Timetable Rockstar logins are in the front of planners. Look out for weekly battles!

Learning Logs are a longer project to be completed over several weeks. New tasks are set each half term.
