Each term, children will be given a home learning project. This should be completed over the course of the term and is due in usually around a week before the end of each term. The project links directly with the topic for the term and provides an opportunity for children to explore an aspect of the topic that interests them, and produce a piece of work that they have enjoyed and can be proud of!
As children leave Year 4 and enter Year 5, they should by now be confident with all their times tables. To help them achieve and maintain this expectation, we will be setting activities using the website 'Times Tables Rock Stars'. Please see your child's Reading Record for their username details and get rocking!
We also expect that children read (and are heard reading, including discussions about the text they are reading) at least five times per week. Their reading activity should be recorded in their Reading Record. Remember - reading does not have to involve a fiction text! It could be something non-fiction that interests them, news reports, match reports, comics, magazines, an article on a tablet - anything! The reading experience will be even more beneficial for your child if you can discuss their reading with them and share the text together.
