Year 4 Homework
Homework activities will be added to the website on a weekly basis, usually by a Thursday evening (see the dated posts below) and should be completed by the following Tuesday.
Every week, we expect the children to read regularly. Ideally, all children will read every day but this does not need to be in the same way each time. Varying the way reading happens can help to keep it interesting.
For all ages of children, it is still valuable to sometimes have a story read to them as they can experience a more proficient reader's use of expression, intonation and pace.
Listening to your child reading is also important, as it provides opportunity to consolidate the reading of familiar words, whilst also decoding new words and sentence structures with adult support.
Discussing reading is essential as this supports the development of the child's comprehension skills, whilst also helping them to start formulating their own opinions about what they read.
You now have access to Spelling Shed from any internet connected device, using your child's individual log in. Our area of the site has already been preloaded with some of the key spelling patterns for Year 4, as well as access to the First 100 High Frequency words which are key for all children to secure. Please encourage your child to access Spelling Shed a few times a week. This is a service that the school has subscribed to, so I would like the children to make the most of the tool by using it at home, as well as in school. Further resources to support spelling can be found at https://www.raglanciwvcprimary.co.uk/english-resources/
Weekly Homework Activities
05/09/19 Preparing for the year ahead
Now that we are back in school, there are lots of things for us to do to prepare for the rest of the school year. Two of these things are your homework for this week.
1. Now that you have received your fresh, crisp new homework book, let's try to keep it that way! I would like you to cover the outside of your homework book so that it is personal to you and protected. You could use wrapping paper, protective plastic or off-cuts of wallpaper. You can also decorate the front cover but you must include: Your name, Year 4 and Homework clearly on the front cover.
2. Complete the 'First 100 High Frequency Words' game on Spelling Shed at least 4 times over the next week. This will help me to see where you are already confident with spelling and where I can help you to improve even more!
Remember - your homework must be completed by next Tuesday - leave your book in the homework box and tick your name on the checklist.
