Homework for Year 4 will be given out on a Friday, to be handed in the following Wednesday. Homework needs to be completed in the purple Homework book. Homework will consist of Reading, Spellings, 1x English/Topic Homework, Maths CGP work book.
It is essential that your child brings their reading books and signed reading records in to school with them every day! Once a week the children will be taken to the school library as a class to change their school library books and home reading books. In addition to this, the children will be given a thirty minute slot after lunch each day to change their reading books independently during guided reading/quiet reading sessions, this is their responsibility.
As well as individual reading, children will also have a guided reading session with their Class Teacher at least once a week. Within the school there is a huge focus on guided reading with groups of children, to ensure children are comprehending what they read.
Please support your child by encouraging them to read daily, for a minimum of 15 minutes, and signing their Reading Record on a weekly basis. Even at this stage it is extremely helpful and beneficial if you encourage discussion about the plot, characters and what may happen in the story.
