Home Learning

At the beginning of each term, the children will bring home the spellings they will focus on each week and they will be quizzed weekly. They are also expected to use these spellings in their writing.  They can also practise them on Spelling Shed.  Who can achieve 'Royal Bee' status?  

The children will also bring home the times table that they need to learn - these will be regularly tested in class.  The children have the opportunity to practise their times tables on TTRS; look out for the inter-class tournaments.  In addition to this, Top Marks and Maths Shed provide excellent ways to learn them.  All logins are recorded in your child's reading diary. 
The children are expected to read every day and have their reading diaries signed with comments at least three times a week. This should be handed in every day.  Rewards are given weekly for those meeting our reading expectations.

How you can help

Please continue to support your child by encouraging them to read a wide variety of genres (poetry, information texts, fiction including adventure, historical stories, diary style books and fantasy) and to read daily.  A suggested reading list is available. They should also be discussing their reading with an adult on a regular basis.  Ideas for questions can be found in their reading diary. Please approach a member of the Year 4 staff if you require more ideas.

At this stage of their learning journey, children should still be practising key skills regularly, such as their number bonds to 10, and within 100, telling the time both on an analogue and digital clock, adding and subtracting 1 or 10 from any number plus multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100.   Ensuring that your child is fluent with their multiplication tables is also incredibly beneficial for them. There are lots of ways that these facts can be practised; chanting, singing, games, apps, web sites or simply writing them out.
