Team Courage

Welcome to the Year 4 Class page


Class Teacher: Mrs Turnlund

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Turner and Miss McCarthy

On Monday 26th September, we will be launching a new reading challenge for this term.

Pupils will need to read to an adult at least three times a week to complete the challenge on time.

Please make sure you sign your child(ren)’s reading record book so that we can keep track of who is reading at home.

The children do not need to read a whole book every time they read to you. Reading a few pages at a time is enough, as long as they discuss their understanding of the text with you, as this is a vital part of their reading development.

Pupils will need to reach the following milestones by:

03/10 for Bronze

10/10 for Silver

17/10 for Gold

Pupils who have reached Gold on time will receive a reward, chosen by the children, during the last week of term.

Please look at the above link for information about our upcoming Times Tables Check in June. Please make use of TTRS as much as possible.


Please click 

and scroll and click on Calculation Policy (Parents) to see the school calculation policy that demonstrates how calculation is taught across the school . This should be helpful when supporting your child with homework.


Times Tables 

Click here to play a range of times table games.

Please remember to use Times Table Rock Stars! I am expecting you to use TTRS at least 3 times a week -

Please play the 'Garage' option to practise tables set by me.

Use the 'Soundcheck' option to practise all your times tables in a speed test. Soundcheck is similar to the government test all pupils will sit at the end of year 4.

We have a reward chart in the classroom with mini, personalised rockstars. When your child has mastered a times table they will move up a level on our class chart. There will be a reward at the end of the chart. 


There will be a spelling test every Friday morning using the words set on spelling shed. New words will be added Friday afternoon for the week ahead. 

At the bottom of the page, there is a list of the words that you need to learn by the end of Year 4. Please practise at home whenever you can!

Please find the Year 3 and 4 common exception words to practise with your child at home.
