Year 4 Foundation Curriculum




At Rift House we aim for your child to participate in a broad and balanced based curriculum.  Our timetable shows various opportunities that your child will access daily, including opportunities for mindfulness, Primary Movement and energizers.


Classroom Environment

 Displays are used in the classroom to help reinforce vocabulary for learning and to show case the amazing work produced by Year 4.




  • Year 4 PE is every Monday and Friday - children MUST bring their individual kitbags complete with their full PE kit. Any medication, such as inhalers, MUST be present in school.
  • Year 4 children are expected to read EVERY night, and must comment at least TWICE in their own reading diaries across a school week. This can be a comment about a character, a setting, an event or facts within the book, magazine or online article they are reading.
  • A focus in Year 4 will be on times tables.  All children will take the test in June.  Please practice times tables as often as possible.  Here are some useful websites to help -
