Thank you to all of the parents that came in and helped out with our topic last term.

 

We are really looking forward to arts week and are hoping that as many of you as possible can spare some time to join the children exploring different art forms.

Home Learning

Home learning in Year 4 consists of reading, spellings, maths and topic.

Reading

Children should aim to read at home for at least 10 minutes every day. For suggested reading in Year 4, see the following link: https://schoolreadinglist.co.uk/reading-lists-for-ks2-school-pupils/suggested-reading-list-for-year-4-pupils-ks2-age-8-9/

Spellings

Spellings will be sent home every Friday to be tested in class the following Friday. The first test will not be until the second week back. Look at the bottom of this page to find this week's spelling list. 

Maths

MyMaths homework will be set online every Friday to be completed by the following Friday. Letters will be going home near the beginning of term with details of how to access MyMaths online with passwords. Please speak to the class teacher if there are any problems accessing homework online.

Topic

At the start of each term, children will be given a bank of home learning options to complete each week. Homework should be handed in each Wednesday. Each piece will be marked from 1-3 (3 being the highest).

In the first week, children will just be asked to cover their home learning books.
