|Year 4 Home Learning – Friday 15thJune 2018|
|A note from the team…
A number of parents have contacted us regarding the time taken to complete recent homework. Please note that the homework that we set is designed to take one hour to complete (30 minutes per task); should your child struggle with a task, please stop them after 30 minutes and indicate that they found it difficult in their homework book.
* Please note that this one hour limit does not include spellings and reading as it is a school-wide expectation that these skills are practised multiple times each week. *
Ideally, please encourage your child to read every day for at least 20 minutes. The minimum expectation is that your child should be reading for 15 minutes five times a week. This reading should be a mixture of independent reading and reading alongside an adult.
Please complete as much of the attached times table colouring activity as you can within 30 minutes. Before colouring each square, please write your answer in the box, making sure that you double check to ensure that you don’t make any careless errors. There are 380 questions – how many can you answer in the time that you have?
Thinking ahead to your transition to Year 5 later this term, write a paragraph about yourself to share with your new teacher. What do you really want them to know? Is there any important information about yourself that you’re keen to share with them? For example, do you have a particular hobby / interest that you wish to tell them about? Can you think of an interesting fact about yourself / your family? Is there anything in school that you’re really confident with or a little bit worried about?
When writing your paragraph, think about all that you’ve learnt this year and show off your writing skills! This is your first chance to impress your new teacher. J
This week, all pupils will be learning from the same list, which focuses on the Y3/4 National Curriculum spelling words (see attached sheet).
