Reading – Homework expectations require Year 3 and 4 children to be reading at least three times per week. We expect children to bring their book bags to school each day and we also expect that parents/carers sign the Rainbow Reading Challenge card and comment when children have read at home. Sharing a book with a child is important no matter how old they are.
The teachers will stamp the reading challenge cards to monitor progress being made.
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.
