Year 3 & 4

Homework Expectations:

Reading – Homework expectations require Year 3 and 4 children to be reading at least five times per week. We expect children to bring their book bags to school each day and we also expect that parents/carers sign the reading contract and comment when children have read at home. Class teachers have reward systems in place for those children who read five times per week.  Sharing a book with a child is important no matter how old they are.

Please check reading diaries for comment from the teacher regarding your child’s reading or work.

Spellings – Spellings will be handed out on Fridays and tested the following Friday. Each child will be given a new ‘look, cover, write, check’ sheet each week to help them learn their spellings. These will be matched to the children’s abilities.

Maths – Times tables will be tested on Fridays so any times table practise will support pupils in school.

Children in Year 3 should be learning their 3x, 4x and 8x table to be secure in these by the end of the year.

Year 4 children are expected to know times table facts up to 12×12 by the end of the year.

Homework Project – Each term children will be asked to make a choice from a set list for their homework project. These tasks are a chance for children and parents/carers, friends and family to showcase their creative skills working in partnership to produce a final product for display in the hall.

Additional homework will be linked to learning. The Y3/4 Team will prepare a task that will support the children’s learning for the following week. Year 3 and 4 pupils will receive homework on a Friday and handing in days will be stated.

The school will not be providing homework books this year.
