Spelling and homework

Children are given spellings on Monday every week to learn and their test is on Friday.

For the first term, children who are in the Blue and Green groups for literacy are following the Rising Stars Spelling Programme. This is a Programme tailored to teach the statutory Year 4 spellings. This term the focus is on prefixes and suffixes.

For children in the Yellow and Red groups, they will firstly be focusing on Year 4 high frequency words that are commonly misspelt. They will then move on to the Rising Stars Programme after Christmas.

 

Maths at home

In Year 4,  children are expected to know all their times tables up to 12 by the end of the year.  The children are given regular tests and complete times table challenges throughout the week.

A good website to help the children practise their times tables and other number facts is :-

http://www.topmarks.co.uk/

Children can also access Timetable Rockstars. 

Thank you for your support. Please feel free to come and speak to a member of the Year 4 Team if you have any queries.
