Year 4 Homework
Homework will either be an online task or a piece of work set by your child’s maths teacher. The tasks may be set to consolidate learning that has taken place in their class that week. Alternatively, the tasks may be used as an assessment of what the children already know before starting a new unit of learning or as a revision of key units that have already been taught. Maths homework will be set on a Friday and is to be handed to your child’s maths teacher on Wednesdays.
Homework will be set by your child’s English teacher and may consist of a task to consolidate learning from the classroom. However, tasks may also be set to boost key skills such as comprehension or grammar and punctuation. Homework will be set on Fridays and is expected to be handed into your child’s English teacher on Wednesdays.
Spellings will be handed to your children by their form tutor. The spellings will consist of seven words; five that are rule/topic related and two that are key vocabulary from your child’s science unit. New spellings will be given out on Tuesdays and the children will be tested on the following Monday. Spelling sentences are expected to be completed in your child’s blue spelling books which are due in on the Monday of the test.
Bug Club – Children have allocated books to read and answer questions about on Bug Club. Children should also be encouraged to read their own choice of book on days when they are not completing a Bug Club activity. Reading a range of text is really important to help the children develop their writing skills.
Bug club should be done 2 or 3 times a week for a 20 minutes session each. On other days at least 20 minutes should be carried out and recorded at least once a week in the children’s reading record.
Practice your spelling and have fun at the same time!
