YEAR 4 HOMEWORK - 22nd September 2017

Dear Year 4 Parents,

In school this week children having been learning about E-Safety and how important it is to stay safe online and using technology responsibly. For your homework this week you need to design and create a poster or leaflet explaining how we can stay safe online and other important things about E-Safety. Make your poster as detailed as possible and eye catching! We want to display these posters around the school! There will be a small prize for the most interesting, informative and eye-catching poster from each Key Stage! 

Another fantastic week. Our eggs are resting nicely in our different drinks.. I wonder what will happen to them by next week?

Science:

This week the homework is focusing on our topic of teeth. There is a cross word to complete. 

English:

This week the homework is a continuing with our work on poetry. I would like you to learn a poem off by heart and be ready to recite it to the class.I have found a couple that fit in with our topic - Where does my food go? You can find your own poem if you want to. Try and find one about teeth or food or our bodies!

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 in on Thursday 28th September 

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Cox
