Year 4

My name is Mrs Joynes  and I am the Year 4 teacher. We are very lucky to be supported by Mrs Hughes, who also works closely with groups of children.

This year, we have lots of exciting learning planned – you can find out what we will be doing by clicking on the ‘Long Term Plan’ button below.

PE: Y4 will be doing PE on a Wednesday afternoon – please ensure that your child comes to school in their PE kit for the day.

At Holy Cross, we are incredibly passionate about fostering a love of reading in all children. We also know how difficult it can be to choose reading books for your child, which is why we have created ‘recommended reads’ for each year group. Click on the button below for more information. 

Many thanks,

Mrs Joynes


In Y4, children are expected to practise their times tables each night on Times Tables Rockstars for at least 5 minutes. At the end of Y4, all children will take the multiplication tables check and so it is really important that the children are fluent in all times tables.

They are also expected to read each night, either their own reading book or on Read Theory, for at least 15 minutes. 

Additional homework will be given as and when I feel it will be beneficial for the children. 


As you know, reading is a huge focus in our school and it can have a fantastic impact on children’s learning across the different curriculum areas.

In class 5, reading records should be completed daily by parents/carers and can be done by clicking on this link: https://forms.gle/4azMgJu8Do5Pxmct8

Children can either access reading online on Read Theory or a levelled reading book/their own book. If you would like any book recommendations, I will be more than happy to help!
