Curriculum

We cover the National Curriculum 2014 objectives for Year 4 and have three cross-curricular themes throughout the year:

Also included is: Summer Term: Out ‘n’ About (Geography and History based Local Study)

Homework

In Year 4, children are expected to complete a few short tasks each week, to support their learning in school. They also have the option of completing theme-related homework.

English:

Regular reading to an adult or themselves – there is a direct link between reading regularly and doing well in school. This should be recorded in their Reading Records.

Talk homework for a Big Write – Talk homework sheets will be handed out at least once a month. Children are encouraged to discuss their ideas at home but can also make notes or draw pictures to use during the Big Write.

Practise weekly spellings – children should practise for 5-10 minutes at least 3 times a week or until they know them. Spellings will be handed out on Mondays, and tested the following Monday.

Maths:

My Maths tasks set by the teacher – don’t forget, your child can log in to complete tasks of their own choosing, too.
