Homework will be set every week by your child's class teacher. Children will receive Maths and English homework, every Friday through TT Rockstars and PurpleMash. Spellings will be provided to children on Monday morning, which should be learnt in preparation for a test that will take place on Friday. Maths will usually be a revision activity of what had been covered during that week. Homework should be handed in no later than Wednesday, however we encourage children to bring in their homework for Monday.
Every child will go home with their home reading books and diaries, which are expected to be read every night. Parents should sign their child's diary, so that it can be shown to member of staff in the morning. Please note, that if your child finishes their book and has to wait for their book changing day, then they are encouraged to read a book, magazine or newspaper article. You still need to sign to show this.
Your child will receive 2 hours of PE each week.
In Mary 4 (Miss Ryan's class), PE lessons are on Tuesday and Friday, whereas in John 4 (Mrs Thorpe's class), PE lessons are on Monday and Thursday (swimming).
Please note that PE kit should be in school at all times. This consists of a red t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps.
John 4 will be having Swimming lessons for the first half of the term and Mary 4 will begin after Christmas.
Girls are expected to wear a swimming costume (not bikini) and boys are expected to wear swimming shorts. All children will need to bring a towel too.
Supporting Learning at Home
Below are some useful website links that may help you to further develop your reading, SPaG and mathematical knowledge.
This year, Year 4 will be completing a Multiplication Test.
This will test children on their multiplication knowledge up to their 12x tables. Children will have 25 questions and will get up to 6 seconds to complete each question.
As a result of this, children will need to be quick and fluent when learning their multiplication facts up to 12. Children will be expected to practice their times tables at home, as well as school.
Below are a list of websites, which will encourage children to learn and test their multiplication facts:
