Year 4 Home Learning – Friday 1st November

All to be handed in on Wednesday 20th November

Reading – Please encourage your child to read for at least 15 minutes at least five times per week. Please record what you have read in your reading record.

Spelling – Like reading, Spelling is very important for your writing. Spellodrome will have targeted spelling lists each week linking to the lessons in class. Challenge yourself and see how many points you can earn!

Home Learning Menu – Over the next 3 weeks you must complete an activity/series of activities that total at least 15 points. How you choose to do so is up to you! For example, you may choose to do the fifteen point activity or you could do a ten point and a five point activity; you could also choose to do three five-point activities – it is completely your choice! Have a look at the activity menu below:
