Homework will be sent home every Thursday and is to be returned on Tuesdays. Each child will be given a Maths and English task to complete each week and we will use Maths and English study books to set these tasks.
The tasks set will consolidate learning that has already taken place within lessons.

Before half term, Year 4 covered methods for written subtraction. This week's homework is a revision of these methods including exchanging. Times Table Rock Stars is also available for children to practise their multiplication tables.
We are currently focusing on writing non-chronological reports about Victorian Britain. For their homework, children have been asked to complete page 7 of their workbooks. This focuses on using past tense verbs, both regular and irregular. In addition to this, we expect children to read three times during the week, recording this in their Reading Records. Education City is available for children to practise this week's spelling pattern.
Please can parents encourage their child to read at least three times a week (ideally every day). Reading records (within the children's Reading Diaries) are to be signed by parents when the child has read and this will be monitored in school.

Please can you ensure that your child has their full PE kit in school for these days as well as long hair tied back. For safety reasons, jewellery is not to be worn during PE lessons, therefore could you please ensure your child is able to remove it independently before the lesson or have it removed before coming into school.
