Homework in Year 4 is used to support the learning in class; it is useful to consolidate learning or prepare for upcoming new learning. Of course we understand that people have very busy lives and may not have the time to complete the homework each week. We completely understand this and do not punish children for not producing homework.
For those children that can, and like to complete homework, it is always celebrated and regularly shared in class on a Thursday or Friday.
Every child is expected to practise spellings each week ready for a test on a Friday.
Spellings will be given to the children at the beginning of term. Spellings are clearly labelled with the test date at the top of each set. All classes will be tested on a Friday. Sometimes the children will be focusing on a spelling rule or pattern, sometimes they are more personal spellings taken from the statutory word list.
When the spellings are taken from the statutory word list, each child will have their own individual spellings which are based on those they need to work on. Therefore, during these weeks, there will be no spellings available on the website. If your child is able to spell the selected words from the statutory list and has no recent spelling corrections, we will be challenging them to look at a list of words which are most often misspelt by adults and select from their spellings from this!
We have added a list of the statutory words for year 3 and 4 below.
