Weekly expectations: 

 

  • Reading books

Children should swap their reading books every week and they should have them in school everyday so that our student volunteers can read with them! Reading records should be signed by you to show your child is reading at home. They will be rewarded dojo points for this smiley In addition to this, school have also invested in 'Reading Planet Online' where children can access a range of books online. These will be set and monitored by Mrs Batham. Children will be rewarded for reading here too! 

  • Spellings

Children will be sent home with ten spellings every week. These should be learnt by every Friday where they will be tested. Children will also be tested on another 5 words from the Y3/4 common exception words which can be found at the bottom of this page. Children will be rewarded for high scores. 

  • Home learning 

Children will be sent home with a variety of home learning tasks which will rotate between English, Maths, Science and Topic. This will be set on a Friday and must be returned to school by the following Friday. The earlier spellings are returned, the more house points children will receive. 

  • Multiplication Check

As part of statutory assessments issued by the government children will now take a 'Multiplication check' in Y4. This will test the most difficult multiplication facts up to 12x12. Children will have 6 seconds to recall the fact and type it in. Children will be baselined in Autumn but will need to be practising at home too! We will also be trialling times table rock stars until half term. For resources and links to help with this please see below.
