Year 4: Miss Marriott - Tigers

Welcome to Tiger Class, which is made up of 30 Year 4 children. Our class teacher is Miss Marriott and our teaching assistants are Mrs Henson and Mrs Ashton. Miss Marriott will be teaching the class Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Every Tuesday, we are very lucky as Mrs Henson will be teaching during Miss Marriott's PPA (Planning, Preparation and Assessment) time.   


Alongside our Class Page, we also share information and updates on Class Dojo. Please make sure you are connected on there so that you can see what we get up to. Please feel free to send me a message on Class Dojo or via my school email which you will see below.

Our Learning:

Each term we will add the knowledge organisers and give you an update about what is in store for the weeks ahead. Click on the icons below...


Each Friday one of the following activities will be set online:

  • My Maths
  • TT Rockstars


Alongside the online activity will be the following:

  • Reading (school diary signed 3 times for a merit)
  • Spelling (see below)
  • Learning times tables


Times Tables:


It is really important that the children are learning their times tables.
In Year 4 the children will take a government set multiplication check in the summer term.
The check is completed on a computer or an iPad in school. The children are given 25 random multiplication questions and they will have 6 seconds to answer each question.
The TT Rockstars Sound Check mode is very similar to the government check set up.


Spelling lists of 10 spellings, following a set rule, will be given out each week. Each list will be given out and placed in reading diaries to learn by the following week. One way of learning the spellings can be by using their Spelling Shed account.


Most of the lists, aside from when we cover the Year 3 and 4 statutory words lists, have an extra 'super speller' challenge to think of three extra words that follow the same given rule to learn. If the children can spell the extra words correctly in their spelling test they can gain a merit!


Spelling Lists will be added here in September to also access if you miss a week in your reading diary.
