Year 4 Homework

 

Homework is set on a Friday and is to be returned by the following Wednesday. 

Children will be set homework either on paper in their book or electronically. Details of this will always be written in your child's homework book.

 

Children will receive one maths and one English activity to complete as homework each week. Children will also be set spellings each week which are to be practised as part of their weekly homework.  

HOMEWORK GUIDELINES FOR YEAR 3/YEAR 4

Homework focus

Day set

Day due

Reading

Pupils need regular reading sessions.

Encourage your child to: decode unfamiliar words themselves; use expression and  ask them questions about their reading.

Parents are encouraged to comment in the child’s reading record book, shared by all adults involved. It is also useful to read books to your children - modelling expression and asking questions about the book.

Your child may also be given reading comprehension questions – these are most important and they help them with inference and deduction – an area of reading that a lot of KS2 children can struggle.

Next Day

English

One task (Grammar/Punctuation/Comprehension sheet) will be sent every week to be shared with parent. This may be split into two smaller tasks.

Spellings

10 current words will be set by your child’s teacher, unless they are in a Read Write Inc. group in which case the RWI teacher will send home the spellings. The spellings will be tested in class during the literacy/RWI lesson. At home, you may wish to spend time with your child individually learning and testing the spellings.
