Welcome to Year 4
Mr McGregor, Mrs Cooper and Mrs Saunders will look after you all this year!
Children will receive weekly homework which comprises of the following:
The children are given spellings to learn each week in preparation for their spelling test Monday mornings.
Each half-term, children will work on a themed project at home. They are encouraged to be creative and take ownership of their learning so that they can deepen their knowledge and understanding of a specific aspect of our in-class learning. Children will then present their work to the class as a speaking and listening activity.
Grammar and Mathematics homework is linked to the concepts we have been studying in class and is sent home each Friday, to be returned the following Friday.
Daily reading of at least 10 minutes is enouraged to increase children's reading progress. Home reading is monitored on a regular basis to ensure children are reading interesting books with an appropriate level of challenge

Weekly activities - keep an eye out on Class Dojo for the daily codes at a weekend!
PE is on Wednesdays. It is essential that all children have a full PE kit in school with them each day. This consists of: black shorts, black pumps and a t-shirt in their house colour.
Children can log in to Mathletics at home. It is tailored to each individual child and the level that they are currently working at. We aim to consolidate and extend their understanding of the concepts we have been studying in class by regular practise on Mathletics.
With the end of year multiplication test, it is important that all children are practising their multiplications regularly. We complete a multiplications challenge every Friday where the children are given 10 minutes to complete as many sums as they can!!
