Next half term our main topics will be The Ancient Mayans (in History), States of Matter (in Science) and K'Nex (in Design and Technology).  In English our work will be based on The Normans and The Battle of Hastings.

Home Learning

Year 4 homework expectations are as follows:

Maths - Please refer to the Year 4 'Key Instant Recall Facts' sheet.

Reading - Your child will read in a small guided reading with a member of the Year 4 team every week.  At the end of this session they will be set some further reading to complete as homework as well as an additional task to complete. The details of additional tasks will be recorded in your child’s Reading Journal where you will also find a sheet that lists the various tasks. This homework must be completed by the next week’s guided reading session.

Spellings - Our weekly spelling test is on a Monday where the children will be tested and given new spellings to learn for the following week. 

Creative Homework - This is to be based on our English, Science or Humanities topic.
