Homework

Children will be given maths and English homework each week. The maths homework will be based on maths facts which are an essential part of the Year 4 curriculum. The expectation is that the children should be able to fluently recall these facts. 

The English homework will be focused on developing the children's vocabulary. Using a 'rich and varied' vocabulary in their writing is a vital part of the Year 4 English curriculum. Children will be sent home with synonyms for a particular word. Please discuss the context for each of these words and challenge your children to use them in conversations and their writing.

Furthermore, children will be sent home with a list of 10 spellings each week. It is the expectation that they use these spellings in 10 sentences. (3 simple, 3 compound and 4 complex). A sheet explaining the different sentence types can be found at the front of their spelling books.

Practising multiplication and division facts is an essential part of homework which should happen in addition to the maths homework. By the end of Year 4 children should be fluently recalling multiplications and division facts for all of the times tables.

The homework should not take children longer than 20-30 minutes. If they are struggling, please ask Mr Cox for help prior to the hand in date.
