In addition to this, after Easter we will be sharing more information about the Y4 Multiplication Check that the children will be taking part in. Please see below for extra information:


Y4 Virtual Diaries

As we have slowly been making our homework more virtual, we are going to re-introduce our virtual reading dairies on Google Classroom. Due to reducing the amount of contact with diaries from home, using the virtual diary will be great as it means children/parents can type in it daily and it can also be checked daily at school by a member of the Year 4 team. We have noticed that reading has trailed off with some children therefore we would like to go back to checking reading daily. As we are only just re-introducing this, if you would temporarily prefer to record in your child’s dairy, that is fine, however it will still need to only come into school on a Friday and will be returned on a Monday.

Please ensure that your child is reading regularly at home and is filling in their diary. Below is a reminder of online e-books your child has access to:

Bug Club

Fiction Express

Oxford Owl

Please note that spelling tests will still be completed on a Friday in reading diaries.

Many thanks

Y4 Reading at Home- Please Read

Our school has recently acquired an online reading programme called Bug Club that we’d like to share with you.

What is Bug Club?

Bug Club is a finely-levelled reading scheme, which ensures that all children can find books at exactly the right level for them. We have many of these books in school already along with the Oxford books. However, with Bug Club, we are investing in the online versions for every printed title and a personalised website for each child.

Please encourage your child to use this resource and take part in the quizzes to check their understanding. They will be assigned books at their current reading band colour. Children’s logins can be found in their diaries.

Below you will find key information about the scheme and how you can get involved. We hope that you and your child will love these books and enjoy reading them at home.

Bug Club Additional Information

Y4 Homework Changes- Please Read.

We will be gradually moving towards more digital homework over the next few weeks. You may have already seen the website post about spellings being on Google Classrooms rather than printed in diaries. In line with this, we have recently purchased an additional feature on Times Table Rockstars, which allows us to use the website to set and track homework. This will replace paper times table homework as of next week. Mr Bevan has assigned homework for this week on Times Table Rockstars as we transition from paper to digital (please note your child still has their paper times table homework too). Please encourage your child to log on to see what their homework task is.

Many thanks

The Y4 Team
