Year 4

Dear Parents,

 

What a long and busy Term it has been. The children have been amazing and we are all looking forward to a well-deserved rest over the Christmas period.

 

This term we have written stories, non-chronological reports and an explanation text in English. We have also really enjoyed reading How to Train Your Dragon. We have worked hard to secure our place value and calculation skills in Maths,  learnt about Electricity and Sound in Science whilst also covering French, DT, History and Geography.

 

There will be no homework this week as we know everyone is so busy and in need of a rest. Please continue to read, use Times Tables Rockstars and practice your times tables.

 

We wish you all a happy holiday period and send our best wishes for 2021.

Homework in Key Stage 2

Each week, Pupils will be set a weekly activity in the :

  • CGP English Comprehension
  • CGP English Ten-minute work out books
  • CGP Spelling and Vocabulary
  • CGP Maths Targeted question book

 

This year, we have had to make some changes to our homework processes as part of our Risk Assessment to help protect everyone. These changes are:

  • Homework packets including CGP books are to STAY at home.
  • Homework tasks will be sent out by Weduc on the day your child has PE (this is the teacher’s time allocated for planning and preparation). They will also be posted on this page.
  • Homework will not be collected in, nor should it be sent electronically. Instead parents will mark the work at home using the answers at the back of the book (answers to the reading will be provided weekly). 
  • Each week as part of the class’ learning timetable, teachers will lead a homework feedback session. In this session, teachers will select a couple of the questions from the homework tasks to share on the visualizer to discuss with the class. Please encourage your child to share questions that they found difficult to look at as part of this session.  This will also be a good opportunity to clarify new/challenging vocabulary encountered as part of the reading comprehension.

 

In addition to these activities, pupils should continue to read to an adult regularly, use Times Tables Rockstars and Reading Eggs to support their learning.
