Year 4 Curriculum Map

 Homework: As schools are closed to most people during the current outbreak of the Coronavirus, work will be set online every Monday and Wednesday by 09:00 am. Please check the website regularly with your children to see what work has been set.

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.


Reading is very important to all children of all ages. During this time, if possible I would encourage your children to read as much as possible independently and with an adult.
