Homework:

Times tables- Children have a weekly times tables focus which is rehearsed each day in school and tested on a Friday. 

Practice your times tables on TT rockstars!

Reading - Children should read at home for 30 minutes daily as part of their homework. Children in Year 4 use accelerated reader. The children complete a star test each half term to assess their optimum reading range. They then read books within this range, record their story maps/notes in their reading journals and complete comprehension quizzes on the computers at school. By completing quizzes, children achieve points to work towards their own individual reading target. 

Spelling - children have a list of ten spellings this will be found on this class page.

IDL! - Your child can log on to IDL and practice spellings at home (not the spellings for the test). But this is a fantastic way to improve their reading and spellings!
