Year Four

Homework Topic – Year 4: St Peter

Dear Parents,

Welcome back everyone and we hope you’ve had a good Christmas holiday.

Just as we did last term, Year 4 children will take home Literacy and Numeracy homework on Friday and it will be due back in school the following Tuesday. Occasionally, there will be homework set related to the topic we are covering in class.

Maths: The focus this term is multiplication, measurement, fractions and decimals. I would like to emphasise the importance of the children studying their timetables, if possible, on a daily basis, as it is integral to all learning in Maths.

English: In our English lessons, we will focus on writing through a particular text for the term. Our text this term is Tales of Wisdom and Wonder by Hugh Lupton.

Tasks may be set for homework, in relation to this text. There will also be lessons on Grammar, Punctuation and Spellings as well as Comprehension. Homework in this subject will continue to be spelling and Grammar work as well as Reading. Please ensure your children read to you daily and kindly take the time out to write comments and sign the Reading Record. It would be beneficial if you could question your child during reading to ascertain how much they understand the text. This could be questions about the characters and their actions backed with evidence from the text.

Science:  In Science the children will be learning about Sound. If you are able to find books in the library on these subjects, this will surely broaden the children’s knowledge and understanding and also enable them to share it with their peers.

Humanities: Children will be learning about The Vikings.

RE: We will be learning about ‘Jesus, the Teacher’.

PE: It is very important that children have the correct kit for Swimming (same as last term) and their indoor and outdoor PE kit. Outdoor PE kit must be a warm tracksuit bottom and long sleeve top with trainers for the cold weather. Indoor PE kit – school t-shirt and navy blue shorts with plimsols. All kit must be clearly labelled.  

Thank you for your continued support.

Yours sincerely,

Sarah O’Neill
