Welcome to Class 4!

 

Working as an individual within Class 4, with support from school and home, your child will continue to develop their independence; skills and learning behaviour.

Reading 

Reading continues to be a vital activity at home and school. Children continue to have a reading book from the classroom and may also decide to have a library book. It is important that they read at least 5 times at home and children may decide to take on the responsibility for recording pages read with you. They may choose to read out loud, in chorus or echo your reading or may even choose to read silently. Discussions about vocabulary, characters and plots are key at this stage.

 Homework

Homework is set twice weekly in addition to reading and times tables.

Monday

Maths homework is set and is due in the following Monday. This is linked to work that we have been doing in class but feel free to Dojo if you have any questions. We mark this in class and discuss any misconceptions.

Have a look on the school’s calculation progression document for guidance about calculation strategies.

Friday

Reading comprehension homework is set and is due in the following Friday. Pupils pre-read the text in class and ‘zap’ important parts of the text. It is crucial that pupils complete this homework- we mark it as a class as part of our reading session each Friday; giving pupils the chance to review their learning.

Year 5 pupils may also have a piece of SPAG homework tom complete linked to our work in class.

Times tables:

Every Friday, pupils select a times table to test themselves. The aim is for all pupils to know all times tables facts up to 12 x 12 confidently by the end of Year 4. Learning and using these facts is part of the children’s daily maths activities but children may like to practise at home:
