Miss F Tyler
Phase Leader for Years 3&4 (Y4 teacher)
Within my teaching career I have taught across both Key Stage 1 and 2, and have now arrived at Webheath, keen to teach in Year 4. From the age of eight, I knew I was destined to become a teacher; passionate in making every child’s school journey a happy and successful experience. I enjoy teaching the whole curriculum, but particularly, I love to read, put my maths skills into practice and be creative within art. Outside of school, I continue to show my creativity by baking and decorating cakes.
Year 4 Teacher - 4LC
I am lucky enough to be 9 years into my teaching career and my 6th year teaching Year 4. One of my favourite subjects to teach is History since I am fascinated by how people lived in the past. I also enjoy building children's confidence in Maths as I found it tricky at school myself! In my spare time, I am a keen cook and enjoy long walks with my cheeky, little dog Timmy.

The expectation in Year 4 is that children will read (at least) 3 times a week and complete times table related challenges via Times Table Rockstars.
At the end of Year 4, children will complete a national multiplication assessment. To support this, every child in KS2 has a Times Table Rockstar login and is expected to practice for (at least) 10 minutes each week. To access a useful Year 4 reading list, click here.
In KS2 we use the Accelerated Reader Computer Program to develop, manage and monitor children’s reading skills. The children pick a book within their own ZPD range and read it at their own pace. We allocate at least 15 minutes a day to reading their book. When finished, they will take a short quiz online in school – this helps to home in on their reading skills and give an indication that they understood what has been read. AR gives both children and teachers feedback on the children’s understanding and reading habits which the teacher then uses to help the children set targets and ongoing reading practice to ensure personal growth.
Daily ‘Book Club’ is also timetabled. This provides opportunities for the children to work in small groups with an adult to develop reading skills and build a love of reading, and it gives an opportunity to read books of choice for pleasure.
We use high quality text to deliver our English Curriculum and focused reading lessons are taught within a sequence of learning.
Year 4 have an assessment for their multiplication knowledge and recall in the summer term. For this, they need to have instant recall for all multiplication and related division facts for all tables up to and including 12 x 12.
