Each week in English, we will be learning 10 spellings, which will follow some kind of pattern or rule. These spellings will be on Spelling Shed for the children to learn. Then, each Wednesday the children will be tested on their 10 spellings. If the children improve their score from the previous week or maintain a score of 10/10, their achievement will be celebrated with green tokens! The year 3 and 4 list of statutory spellings will also be available to practice throughout the year on Spelling Shed.

Times Table Rock Stars
Each week in class, we will have a times table focus. We will practice in school but I also want to see that the children have been practicing at home. My suggestion for times table practice each day is at least 10 minutes but no more than 30 minutes. I will be checking the children's achievements and I will be giving out green tokens to praise the children for their efforts.

Each day, the children will be expected to read at home. This could be with a family member, independently or even listening to an audiobook. On the link below, you will be taken to our web page with lots of resources to help you find your child's next book! Please don't hesitate to contact me for book recommendations too.

Below you will find a link to the Year 4 homework takeaway. This is a chance for the children to do something a little bit more creative at home. Please encourage your children to bring in anything they create so they can have their photo taken for the homework wall!
