Year 4

Homework - 7.1.22- 14.1.22

Hello and welcome to year 4! 
Happy New year everyone! It has been so lovely welcoming the Year 4 children back this week and they have got stuck back into learning with no problems at all! 

The weather has become very chilly so please ensure your child comes to school with gloves, warm clothing and a warm, waterproof coat with a hood, especially on our outdoor days. 

Thank you all,
Phoebe and Gillian


Times table Rockstars - recurring
Practice your times tables on times table rockstars. Try playing on soundcheck as much as you can! In Year 4 we have learned all the times tables now, up to 12. It is really important that the children keep practicing these until they have a secure knowledge as we start to prepare for the Year 4 multiplication check at the end of the year.

Have a look through the different ebook libraries. Most of us will click on age range, 7-9, all series and all levels. Pick a book of your choice and practice reading it to your grown up. If you think it is too easy, have a look at some of the 9-11 books.


The Read Write Inc Phonics books are good for practicing word reading if that is a target of yours. Laura's group might enjoy practicing these with a grown up and answering the questions at the back.
