What is the homework this week?
This week the MyMaths homework is decimal / fraction equivalents.
The children will continue to learn their next 10 spellings on their common exception lists. Each child will come home with a personalised list based on their common misspelt words. This is kept in their spelling books, which should be returned to school each Friday to update.
Copies of the spellings can be found here:
Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check 2022
The children will take part in a national times tables check next half term. If you would like to practise at home, please click on the link below.
The children have 6 seconds to answer each times tables question.
You can check how they have done by clicking on the "Show Results" button.
The children can then practise any facts they are unsure of.
Information about the upcoming Year 4 multiplication check can be found here:
We would like the children to be reading at home a minimum of 5 times a week. They can read to an adult or they can read by themselves. Every time they read, please record this and sign their reading diary. Please encourage your child to read a variety of different genres and discuss with them the books that they are reading. To supplement their reading, the children have access to BugClub. Please record all BugClub reading in their reading diaries as these count towards their weekly reads.
To access BugClub please visit: https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0

Our text for this half term is 'The Arrival'
Every Friday, your child will be given a set of words to learn how to spell and they will
be tested on these the following Friday. The spellings can also be found on the
website. It is important that the children understand what the words mean and that
they practise using them in context.
Please ask your child for the words they are learning from their Year 3/4 list
