Welcome to Wren Class
Expectations in Year 4
Wren Class Weekly Timetable
Reading at home in Year 4
Reading in school is only a small part of the reading children do overall so it is vital that they read at home at least 4 times a week and preferably more.
You should have received a reading record, either the same one that can continue to be used from last year or a new one. In this it is important to record the book that has been read, the date, the page number that has been read to. Children can record this themselves and then this can be signed by an adult.
In Key Stage 2 we are going to continue with the reading raffle, children will receive a ticket for the raffle after they have read ten times and had these signed by an adult.
As last year, there will be weekly spellings tests, these will test the Year 3 and 4 spelling list (which you can find below) with ten selected each week at random.
Times tables will be done frequently in school with all children expected to know all multiplication and division facts to 12 x 12 by the end of year.
The policy regarding homework has now been sent home, for clarification, there will be either one piece of literacy or one numeracy each week, sent home on a Monday and due in the following Monday. This is in addition to spellings and learning times tables.
Spellings are going to be set individually from now on with the children having their own set to learn, we will check these every two or three weeks but this does mean that there will be no more weekly spelling tests.
Learning times tables is a vital part of a child's mathematical understanding and helps them access so much of the maths curriculum outside of multiplication. As this is so important we have signed up to Times Table Rockstars which is an online game where the children earn coins with correctly answered times tables questions.
