Books for Year Four

There are hundreds of books available for year four. We have selected ONLY the ones we think are most useful and included them below.

Home study structured courses are becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to using books. The main advantages are:

  • All the work is fully planned and structured for you, so you don’t need to decide which books to use and which topics to focus on.
  • They tend to include a range of activities to consolidate core skills in a fun and engaging way.
  • With many different courses available, it is easy to pick the right course for your needs and level of ability.
  • As you don’t have to buy lots of different books, they can be far more cost effective.

If you are considering using a structured course we recommend using Learning Street’s find your course tool as it allows you to quickly identify the ideal course based on your child’s year group, maturity and current level of ability.

In addition, we have developed four Free Preparation guides for year four which you are able to find on our Year Four Preparation Guides page.

Please read the preparation guide you feel MOST suits your situation then you’ll be able to see which of the resources we suggest you use and when.
