Wilthorpe Primary School Aim high and never give up

Year 4

Welcome parents and carers of Year 4,


We have linked several activities and websites along with the materials on the home page. 


Also, try to read everyday with your child, and practise spellings and times-tables which also have activities both on this page and the home page.


If you find your child is struggling to access the material on this page, please don't hesitate to look at the suggested materials on prior year groups' pages.


If you want to do any of the extra tasks or take part in your own research for our Sands of Time (Egyptians) topic, then that would be superb! 


If you do complete any work, please take a photograph and email it to the school  account ( and we will create an online gallery. 


Should you have any issue logging into our subscription services (Spelling Shed, Times Table Rock Stars or Rising Stars: Reading Planet) please contact the school and we will try to solve the issue. For Rising Stars, you could use the generic accounts for each year group from the main page.   

Thank you for your hard work, support and understanding in these rapidly-changing times.


All the best,

Year 4 staff
