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.

Literacy and Numeracy

 

Literacy

This term we are reading Spiderwick Chronicles - a fantasy story. 

We will also look at a variety of non-fiction texts around our topic of chocolate. 

 

Numeracy

This term we will be looking at fractions, decimals and percentages. 

 Throughout our numeracy learning we will use our problem solving skills to apply our knowledge to a variety of contexts including real life problems.

Useful Information

We are looking for parent helpers to come in to read with children across the Year 4 classes. If you might be able to spare an hour or two each week, please let you child's teacher know.
