YEAR 4 HOMEWORK -19th January 2018

We had a fantastic time at Brockhill Park on Wednesday and are looking forward to our Maths Trip to Brockhill this Wednesday (24th January), please remember your wellies and a packed lunch!​


This week the homework is continuing with our work on our times tables. There is a sheet to complete. 


This week the homework is focusing on our punctuation and grammar work, there is a sheet to complete.  


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


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 spellings

Times Tables
