Hello year 4 families!
As requested we have added lots of information to this page that you can use to support your children at home. This includes the common exception spelling words for year four, which can be used in conjunction with the spelling activities suggested on this page. We have also included information on the content of our mathematics curriculum, as a guide, to show what will be covered throughout the year. 
We hope you find these useful.

We hope you enjoy some of these activities.
