Welcome to Year 4 at primary school!
In schools in England, Year 4 is for children 8–9 years old, and is the second year of Key Stage 2.
During this year, your child will start getting more homework set for them. Watch out for the Year 4 multiplication tables check in June, when children will be expected to recall their times tables from 1 to 12 in a timed test.
The Year 4 multiplication tables check
In June 2020, the new Year 4 multiplication tables check will become statutory. Your child will need to take a short online test to make sure their times tables knowledge is at the expected level.
