Homework will be set from the 21st September 2020. Your child's homework will be set on https://www.edshed.com and will be spelling, times tables and maths. These will be set weekly and must be completed by the following Monday. Your child's login has already been sent home and an additional copy will be glued into their reading record on 21st September 2020 for you to access.
Reading books will be sent out from 14th September 2020. Children will take a book home on the Monday and return it on a Friday. They can only be changed on a Monday. Children's reading records will also be checked on a Monday.
It is expected that your child reads 3X a week at home and this is recorded in their reading record by an adult. If it is not recorded in, we will not know who has read. They can read the same book 3 times (this will help to improve their reading accuracy and fluency), different chapters of a book or books from home.
PE will take place twice a week on a Tuesday and Thursday. Children need to come to school dressed in their full PE kit (Mrs Pemberton has sent a letter to all parents stating the requirements of this).
This summer, Year 4 will undertake a multiplication tables check. This check will test their recall of their times tables (up to 12 X 12) while using a computer or ipad. The children will be given 25 mixed times tables questions and will have 7 seconds to answer each question. The number of children who recieve 25/25 will be recorded by the Department For Education. We do a daily 10 times tables challenge every morning and also a weekly beat the clock assessment in class, however, if you are looking for some tips on learning times tables at home, have a look at the page below!
If you ever wish to speak to myself, you can usually phone me after school on or alternatively you can make an appointment via the school office to have a telephone conversation with me at another more convenient time.
We are looking forward to a fantastic year and thank you in advance for all the support you give to your child’s learning at home.
