Home Learning Resources
Each week, homework will be uploaded to Google Classroom, for children to complete. Children will have two pieces to complete, usually one piece of English and one piece of Mathematics. It is also important that children continue to regularly practise spellings and times tables. Homework will be set on a Friday and due in the following Friday.
Enrichment tasks will be set every half term and encourage the children to work collaboratively, with someone from home, to create a piece of work to be proud of. We like to let the children choose how they would like to present their work, this gives them the opportunity to be as creative as they would like. If you would like to use any art resources or if children need time in school to complete their task, please let us know.
To further encourage 'Reading for Pleasure' we are using 'Accelerated Reader'. Children will need to read for 20 minutes at school, and 20 minutes at home each day and log their reading in their reading log books. On completion of a book children will take a short quiz on a computer at school to check their understanding of the book. Children are welcome to read their personal books from home - to check if there is an associated quiz please use the Accelerated Reader Book Find website here.
Spelling Frame is a free interactive website to practise and test spellings from the Key Stage 2 spelling curriculum. http://spellingframe.co.uk/
The children will need to know how to read and spell all of their High Frequency Words by the end of Year 4. The Y3/4 curriculum spellings can be found here
Maths Frame is a useful website with a variety of interactive maths games, printable worksheets and assessments. https://mathsframe.co.uk/
The 'Multiplication Tables Check' is particularly useful for children in Year 4.
This activity exactly mirrors the 'Multiplication Tables Check' that will be given to children at the end of Year 4. They are tested on their multiplication tables up to 12 x 12. There are twenty-five questions and children have six seconds to answer each question with three seconds between questions. The questions are generated randomly using the same rules as the 'Multiplication Tables Check'
Our P.E. days are Thursday and Friday.
On Thursday and Fridays, children will need their indoor / outdoor PE kit, including a white round neck t-shirt, black or green shorts and black pumps or trainers. Tracksuits may be worn during cold weather for outdoor PE lessons.
Please ensure that a full P.E. kit is in school each day in case of additional PE activities.
Brass lessons are on Tuesday afternoons. Please ensure that brass instruments are in school by Tuesday morning.
Reading books, reading log books/ journals and spelling log books must be brought into school every day.
