1. Homework Tasks

 Homework will be set every Friday on our new platform and must be submitted by the following Wednesday


 English - Compound Words

 Maths - Intro to Fractions


For our upcoming workshop - on Monday 3rd June 2024

Spellings - Children will be tested on their spellings every Friday. The children have been given their small blue spelling books with either the letters A, B, or C  on the front cover. These indicate which spelling groups they are in and which spellings they will need to learn. It would be good practice for them to include each word in a different sentence, to demonstrate that they understand how to use the word in context. Remember to underline the word that they have included in the sentence. The children will bring their spelling books home on Friday, so that you can see their spellings scores, however, make sure the children bring their spelling books to hand in to their teacher on Mondays.



 Your weekly spellings are listed below. 

Spellings will be tested every Friday

Notes to Know This Week:

* Your child has been issued a reading book. We do insist on books being read and comments made in the home/school books before they are changed every Friday. 


Each evening please read aloud to a member of your family.  Remember to talk about the book.

What might happen next?

How do you think the character is feeling? Why do you think that?

What happened in the story?

Can you find a word that means the same as ............?

What is the definition of .........?  If you don't know, can you find it in the dictionary?

Did you enjoy the story? Why?

Have you read a different story that has similar themes in to this story?

Remember to refer back to the text when answering the questions.

Please bring your reading book and home school diary into school every day as we like to hear you read at different times during the week.

You are responsible for changing your reading book when it has been signed by an adult in your homework diary.  Please change as and when needed during our morning busy work.

 Times tables 

This half term the children will focus on all of the times tables up to and including the 12s. Learn these times tables forward, backwards and out of order.  Please use times tables rock stars to practise.  Your log in is the same as your log in for the computers at school.  On a Friday, each week, the children will have a times tables test to prepare them for their times table check in Year 4.


Maths Passports

You have been given a maths passport which you will need to bring to and from school each day in your school bags.  It is a tool that will help you become fluent in your times tables and related division facts.  Please practise the skills, once you have practised, a parent can test you and sign it if you complete it rapidly – a parent can only sign off two out of the three boxes as an adult within school will sign off one of the three boxes.  We will be using the passports during our morning activities on various days and during our maths lessons on a Friday.  Please do not rush the tasks, they are to be completed over a period of time to ensure you are fluent before moving onto the next maths passport.


Please ensure that an adult signs your diary, in the space provided at the bottom of the right page, each week to show that you have read with them.
