At the start of the half term children will be given a homework sheet with information about the homework. There will be a piece for each week and the children can choose which order to do them in. It is expected that each Monday a piece of homework has been completed and brought into school to be marked.
The children have completed a baseline test to identify which of the year 3/4 common expception words they can currently spell. These have been highlighted on a word list in the front of their homework books. Each half term the children will identify which of the year 3/4 common exception words they can't yet spell. They will then focus on learning these at home over the half term using their red spelling journal. There will be a half termly spelling test where we will update their spelling sheet to add new words they can now spell. In class, we will be focusing on learning the Year 4 spelling patterns. These will also be sent home each half term to be practised.
Your child had been given a yellow reading record and a home reading book. It is expected that they read at home a minimum of three times each week and that their diary is signed by an adult. Diaries will be checked by the class teacher on a Friday.
If your child is finding any part of the homework difficult, encourage them to use a dictionary or the internet for help. Alternatively, they can ask their Class Teacher who will be happy to help!
