Year 4 Team:
Summer Term Curriculum Overview:
It is very important that your child’s attendance is as high as possible this term. There continues to be a strong correlation nationally between children’s attendance and progress. Particularly this term, recovering ground lost through days off school will prove very difficult as time is at such a premium.
In Year 4, children will receive homework every week and are expected to complete this on time and independently. Weekly homework will be set on a Wednesday, due in by the following Wednesday and will consist of the following:
Reading: Ideally, children should be reading daily; however, we understand that this may not always be possible and therefore we set an expectation for children to read at home for a minimum of 4 times per week. Children should bring their reading record and book into school daily but are asked to ensure an adult at home has signed it before they hand it in on Monday morning when they will then be checked and signed by a school adult. If the reading record has not been handed in, not been signed by a parent/guardian or does not evidence that the child has read at least 4 times in a week at home, children will be given a chance to do so by the next day or attend reading club during their break time.
SPaG.com/TTRS/Numbots: Children will continue to receive weekly practise via SPAG.com and TTRockstars. If there are any issues around access to a device or the internet, please do let us know as soon as possible so that alternative arrangements can be made.
In June this year, Year 4 will be taking part in the multiplication tables check. This is a online check of 25 times table questions up to the 12x table and all Year 4 children in the United Kingdom take part.
Children have also explored using Numbots.com. This website is similar to TTRS but uses addition and subtraction facts rather than multiplication facts. Some maths homework this term will be using Numbots rather than TTRS.
Spellings: Children will receive 5 words from the Year 3/4 statutory word list which they should practise each night alongside the spelling rule of the week from which they will be tested on 5 associated words.
Writing: Children have been given a homework book to complete a piece of writing homework each week. This will be 3-5 sentences based around a task written on a sticker inside the book. When children complete these pieces, they should be brought back in to be marked before the next piece is given out.
If children do not complete pieces of homework in a timely manner, they may be asked to work on these during breaktimes.
