Homework Information

Children in Y4 should also aim to engage in quality reading time at home at least five times per week.  It is also essential that times tables are worked on and learned regularly.  Rapid recall of times tables facts up 12x12 greatly assists in many areas of the Numeracy curriculum.


Literacy and Numeracy homework will be set every Friday for completion by the following Wednesday or Thursday.  Additional topic, Science or research homework may also be set.


It is, however,  important to note that homework shouldn't be taking hours.  If there is any kind of issue at all then please do let me know as soon as possible.


Mr Redfern.

Homework is back! This week, Numeracy homework has been set on Education City to focus upon those all-important times tables facts.  A reminder that Y4 need to be able to instantly recall their times tables facts up to 12x12; it's going to take a lot of hard work and help but they can definitely get there.


Literacy homework will focus upon column 2 of the spelling list for a spelling quiz next Friday.  In addition, as part of our focus upon writing persuasively, I have given the children a passage of text containing gaps prior to most of the nouns.  The children will need to write with carefully chosen, positive and even boastful language choices to convince the reader of how great our school is!  This will need to be copied out neatly into homework books.  We'd be very grateful if you could emphasise the importance of neat, joined handwriting during this task to avoid bad habits creeping in smiley
