Weekly homework in Class 4 consists of completing the following for Year 4: 

  • One Literacy/Grammar task provided weekly 
  • One Numeracy task provided weekly
  • Spelling practice at home of weekly spellings for testing Wednesday
  • Reading with an adult on a daily basis 
  • Times tables practice at home as frequently as possible
  • A project style task to be set at the start of each half-term relating to the Class's topic. This is a creative piece and can be interpreted however the child wishes. We encourage children to complete this as independently as possible. Each project will be due in in the final week of half-term. 

It is extremely helpful when comments are made in reading records and record cards regarding homework based on your child's achievements or difficulties. As always, if there are any problems with any homework tasks, please do not hesitate to ask for help and support.

A note from Miss Jones on homework. 

All homework will be based around work we are doing in class. This should mean that children feel comfortable and confident to tackle each task. However, if there are occasions where children are not sure please encourage them to seek support from Miss Jones or Miss Chance. Please do not struggle or stress at home, we are here to help.
