 Homework Information

In Year 4, there will be a range of homework activities, most of which will be set on a regular basis but some will be occasional and linked to our termly topic.

Reading - Please read for a minimum of 3x a week at home. Each time you read, please enter the details into your reading diary and ask an adult at home to sign the entry for you. Reading diaries are due in for checking every Tuesday.

Spellings - Every Tuesday you will be given a set of spellings to practise throughout the week at home. We will also complete activities during the week at school on the spelling rule that has been sent home. Every Tuesday you will have a spelling test during English to test you on the spellings you've been working on. You don't need to hand in your spelling sheet but please be prepared for your test!

Maths - Maths homework will be issued on a Tuesday and is due in the following Tuesday. You will be set a piece of work in your Maths Homework Book based on the current topic(s) we are learning in class. I would also like you to please practise your times tables at home on a regular basis.

Remote Learning Information (if your child is isolating)

If your child has to isolate (but is feeling well in themselves) for any period of time, please check our Year 4 Teams for their remote learning. Your child will be set a piece of Maths, English and one other subject each day. Please either 'hand in' the learning on Teams or email me any learning you would like to share with me. It would be great if your child could also read each day and practice their times tables.
