Academic expectations for the end of Yr4

By the end of the year the national expectation for a child in Y4 is 4.3 for

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Maths

Other Expectations

  • Children are expected to follow the school’s Golden rules and agreed class codes of conduct at all times.
  • Children will be expected to be more independent in their attitude to learning and taking responsibility for their possessions.
  • Reading books and records (signed by parent) will be expected in daily.
  • In order to develop children’s love of reading and fluency skills, children are expected to read each day. If this does not take place at home, they will be required to do this in school time where a quiet time will be provided.
  • Rewards will be given for regular readers.
  • Children will have a locker (roughly 21cmx21cmx50cm) to keep their possessions in, so please ensure they bring a bag that fits into this.
  • Children are allowed to drink water throughout the day, so please ensure they have a full, named bottle in school.
  • Rewards are given through House Points and Marble Treat. Golden Time will continue as in Year 3.
  • Children will be given roles and responsibilities in the class e.g. School Council, Eco Representatives, table and PE monitors.
  • Children are encouraged to use the toilet at break times to avoid disruption to learning.

School Trips

  • We hope to be able to provide at least one school trip per year, but will be asking for enough voluntary contributions for the trip to go ahead. For example, this year the children participated in a water sport adventure day at Hurley Lock.
  • As part of the PE curriculum, Y4 will go swimming during Term 3 and 4. Information will be distributed in T2.
  • The children will have the opportunity to participate in activities from outside agencies e.g. Road Safety and Music workshops by Norden Farm.
