Welcome to Year 4
In schools in England, Year 4 is for children 8–9 years old, and is the second year of Key Stage 2. As your child grows their independence and confidence in their learning, there may be a greater focus on homework in some schools – ensuring the children have a strong grasp of their key spellings for the year.
In maths and English, the teachers will be aiming to ensure that your Year 4 child knows and understands particular key skills. Apostrophes, commas, times tables, and key spellings are just some of the things children in Year 4 are expected to use accurately. Furthermore, this will be the year that your child will undertake an assessment in their times tables – you will be able to find more information about this here.
