St. Margaret’s C of E Junior School

Year 4

Welcome to the Year 4 webpage.


In the case of your child being unable to attend school to await Covid test results or a class bubble being closed, your child should access the blended learning via their school Welearn email accounts. All Y4 pupils have been given details of how to access this and have their usernames stuck into their home/school diary. Parents/carers have also received an email with this information.


Please also watch this video explaining how to access it.

Previous 'Home Learning' videos can be found by following this link:


  • Please remember to use our Year 4 email address if you would like to contact us. Use to inform us of alternative pickup arrangements, notify us of      any important information or to clarify any queries you may have. 


  • Please ensure your child comes to school with a good supply of pencils and a 30cm clear ruler.

In design and technology we created our own puppets. We used a range of sewing techniques such as the running stich, back stich, over stich and applique.



Please ensure your child reads at home everyday. Reading is such an important skill, used in every aspect of our school day and lives. As a minimum, please sign your child's diary 3 times a week. 

Use the questions below to support your child with their comprehension. These questions follow our 'Reading Dogs' which the children are already familiar with. 



Maths homework will be set every week.

Your child will record this in their diary. Usually, homework activities will be set on the 'Mathletics' portal. 


If you want to do more Maths revision, choose from one of these websites:

Times Table homework

Your child will also be asked to practice their times tables each week. Please help them to recall both the multiplication and division facts for the times table they are practicing. 


As far as we know, the Y4 multiplication check will still be going ahead next June, so please continue to revise all times tables with your child. The links below will help you. 


Telling the time 

Reading an analogue clock is an important skill to master. In Year 4, children need to be able to tell the time to the nearest minute and convert the time between analogue and digital 12- and 24-hour clocks with confidence.  

Some activities you may choose to try are: 

  • Create your own paper plate clocks 
  • Use the clocks at home to practice telling the time on an analogue clock and converting it into a digital time. 

English/ Grammar 


Each week, your child will be set 2 or 3 learning activities on Study Ladder. Your child's log-in information can be found on the front cover of their diaries. Most activities set, will be interactive and will NOT need printing off. For the odd activity that does ask you to print, please complete the activity on a scrap piece of paper. 


You can access study ladder using the link below: 




Children will be set spelling each week. These will be recorded in their diaries. Please use the activities and links below to help your child learn and apply the spelling rule that has been set each week. 


These additional Grammar and Spelling resources might come in useful whilst home schooling.
