Homework and Spellings

In class 4, we expect every child to read at least 3 times a week to an adult, be active on Spelling Shed and Times Tables Rock Stars. In addition to this, a piece of homework will be set weekly. The homework will be in preparation  for or revision of a lesson that we will be completing in class so it is very important that it is completed on time. It will link to the main topic knowledge and vocabulary as outlined in the Knowledge Organisers, which will be published on here as well as on ClassDojo at the start of a new topic. I know that many parents like to get involved with our topic learning at home, so the Knowledge Organisers can be used to guide your own independent research.  


Spelling games will be available on Spelling Shed for you to practice and learn your spellings in a fun way, which are now published on here and on ClassDojo at the start of every half term. They are now in the 'triangle' formation, which is designed to help the children remember and retain the spelling knowledge that they have learned.


Each week, the children will be given a times table to focus on for homework, which will be tested the following week. Please practise the times table with the facts out of order as well as the corresponding division facts.


Many thanks for your support.
