Reading at home

All pupils have a reading folder, containing a reading book and a reading record.

If possible, we would like all children to read at home, at least 3 times per week.

Reading Records

These should be used by parents and pupils to capture the individual child’s reading journey. When you hear your child read, please record this in the reading record.

Homework

In Year 4, we encourage all children to take part in homework. All children will receive an Attitude and Achievement stamp for completing all homework on a fortnightly basis. This will be recorded in their Role Model and Citizenship record. 

Year 4 children will be expected to complete the following each week:

  • Read 3 times a week, using reading their records to evidence and summarise the text.
  • Weekly activities set on Sumdog for Maths learning. If you are unable to access online homework, please let the class teacher know and we will make alternative arrangements.
  • Practise the spelling and reading of the statutory Y4 words. You will receive a copy of your child’s spelling assessment, which will be updated every half-term.
  • In addition, it is wise to consolidate previous years spellings.

This is the core homework expectations for Year. Additionally, personalised homework may be sent out on occasion.

Home learning support.

Times table Rockstars is a fun App to support multiplication and division.

Sumdog supports all Maths concepts.

If there are any difficulties with accessing the online homework please let the class teacher know.
