Welcome to Year 4!
Year 4 are looking out for those who live out these values and virtues in our everyday school lives. We have discussed what these values and virtues mean and we are trying to embody them in our everyday lives.
Homework will focus on basic skills including the timetables, spellings and reading journals.
Reading Journal Activities – 1-2 Journal activities to be completed a week. The focus should be on quality rather than quantity of work. Journals will be checked on a Monday. Please can you help your child, when selecting books from home, to make sure that they are reading a wide range of different genres. They can use books from school to assist them too.
Times Tables Rockstars Sheets – 4 tests will now be sent home. The children should be timed for 5 minutes. If your child can complete these in less than five minutes then please record their time and encourage them to keep trying to improve their time. As you are aware your child will be sitting a multiplication check test in June that will test their knowledge of times tables. By the end of Year4 all children should know all of their times tables. It is therefore very important that the children are practising these on a regular basis.
Spellings – Spellings will now be completed on the ‘Look, cover, write, check’ sheets and will be tested on a Monday.
