Home Learning in Year 4
At the start of each half term, the children will be given a grid containing a broad range of tasks spanning a number of subject areas. The children will choose at least six home learning tasks to complete by the end of each half term.
Reading is of utmost importance and should be a priority for home learning. We expect the children to read aloud to an adult for 10-15 minutes at least 5 times a week in order to develop their fluency, give you the opportunity to explain the meaning of new words and to check their understanding through questioning. We strongly recommend that you read to them as much as possible, preferably from a book that they would not necessarily choose or be able to read themselves, to develop their understanding and overall enjoyment of reading. Reading to your child has a huge impact on their progress.
We will continue to introduce a new spelling rule every Monday in school and practise it throughout the week. These weekly spellings will be set on Spelling Shed for the children to practise at home and will be tested on the Friday.
Times Table Rock Stars will continue to be accessible at all times and MyMaths will be used where appropriate to support children’s learning; any tasks set will be linked to the children’s learning from that week.
