Homework teaches our pupils to work independently and take responsibility of their own learning. We encourage all parents to have an active role in their child's education through homework which in turn will give you an insight into your child's learning and progress.
As well as weekly English and Maths tasks, the children will be given a learning log. The children will have a number of weeks to complete at least 2 activities from the list. The children can choose to do more than two if they wish. The more activities they complete the more dojos and raffle tickets they will receive. These will be awarded in a show and tell celebration in class on the date specified on the log.
We expect the children in Year 4 to read a minimum of 4 times a week. Reading is so important as it builds self-esteem, vocabulary and feeds the imagination! This only needs to be a handful of pages with some questions asked about their understanding of the text. Reading must be recorded your child's reading record and handed in at school.
Please make sure your child brings their PE kit into school on the first day of each half term where it can be kept in their lockers. For this term, children will be doing P.E. on a Friday. Some of our P.E. lessons will take place outside so please provide your child with an outdoor kit as well as their indoor one.
This year it is VERY important to learn your timetables as you will have a test at the end of the year. The multiplication tables check will test Year 4 pupils ability to recall times tables up to and including the 12 times table as well as assess pupils precision and fluency.
If you are off due school due to needing to self-isolate I will upload work here for you to complete whilst you are off if you are feeling well enough. Don't forget to also keep reading and you can practice your spellings too! I would love to see what you have been up to so please feel free to send it to me via email.
Here are the current learning activities.
