Wow look at how much fun we have in Year 4

May is a very special month in the Catholic calendar as it marks the month of Mary. This is a time when we should take time to think about Mary and reflect on how she is the Mother of Jesus and Mother to us all. During this month we should take time out from our day to reflect and pray to Mary, especially when we are all living through such new and uncertain times.

Expectations in Year 4

 

Homework

Homework will be set on Purple Mash, Maths.co.uk, TTRS and SPAG.com weekly. Please  complete it and click on ‘hand in’.

 

Reading

All children are expected to read for at least 30 minutes every night. Please sign your child's diary to show you have listened to them read. Teachers will sign diaries on Monday and Fridays.

 

If it is fiction, answer the following questions and discuss them with an adult if you can:

  1. Which tense is this book written in?
  2. How is the main character feeling at this point in the story? How do you know?
  3. Can you summarise what has happened so far in your own words?

 

If it is non-fiction, answer the following questions and discuss them with an adult if you can:

  1. Summarise the key points from what you have read today. 
  2. Write down three facts from what you have read today.
  3. If you were writing this book, is there any other information you would have included?

 

Spellings

All children will receive a copy of the spellings they need to practise at home. Children have been shown strategies to help them to learn their spellings.  

 

Times Tables

By the end of year 4, children should have memorised their multiplication tables up to the 12 multiplication table. It is vital that children are able to rapidly recall multiplication facts, and can do so ‘out of sequence’ (i.e. answer 6 x 7 without having to count in 6’s from 0). Please encourage your child to use Times Tables Rock Stars and Purple Mash to practise their times tables.
