YEAR 4 HOMEWORK - 20th April 2018

Dear Parents/Carers,

Maths:

This week the homework is continuing with our work on our fluency and problem solving. There is a sheet to complete. 

Reading

Please continue to read and record your progress in your green reading diaries. Remember you need at least 4 signatures.

Spelling

Each child will be given a list of spellings to learn. These are stuck into their reading diaries. It is important for the children to be able to apply these learnt spellings in their writing as well as performing well on the test. The following strategies may be useful when helping your child learn their spellings:

1.     See a word within a word, believe is a tricky spelling with the ie or ei pattern. The word within believe is lie, so use this in a sentence to remember it: "Never believe a lie."

2.    Noticing how words are built with root words, prefixes and suffixes. 
This is a very important strategy, especially if your language doesn't build words this way.

e.g. uncomfortable = not comfortable = un + comfort + able.
irregularly = ir + regular + ly,​

3.    Testing spellings in different ways can also be effective. For example, you could ask the child to write down the word and the meaning. Or, if an adult was to read a sentence aloud which includes one of their spellings the child must write down the whole sentence, including the spelling.

Times Tables

Every Monday there will be a times table test on both the multiplication and division of a certain table. 

The order of the times table chart is: 2x, 10, 5x, 11x, 9x, 3x, 4x, 6x, 8x, 7x, 12x then mixed. 

This homework is due on Thursday 26th April.
