When your child is absent from school and is well enough to complete their work, please contact your class teacher via email so that they can provide the weekly timetable and resources. The work is reflective of what they would be completing in school.
In the event of a bubble closure due to Covid 19, then links to each day’s work will be uploaded here. A stationery resource pack can be provided if requested. It is still an expectation that work is completed and returned daily by email in order for your child to continue to make progress. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us:

We want children to feel more comfortable with doing homework and for them to see it more as an extension of their learning, so…
Each Monday your child will come home with a list of spellings and will be tested on the Friday. Some may come from the Year 4 word bank and the rest will follow a particular pattern. Please help and encourage your child to learn their spellings as this is so important for their reading and writing! Your child will also bring home a copy of their scores after being screened on the Year 2, 3 and 4 spellings, which will show them which ones they need to practice (in whatever time they wish to use) before being screened again during the next half-term.
Maths and English
English homework – based on our class book or topic at the time, children will be given a menu where they can choose from one of 4 tasks to complete every 2 weeks, which gives the children the chance to complete a good piece.
Maths homework – children will be given a selection of tasks based on learning that the children have been focusing on at school that week- this will be set on Purple Mash.
Children will earn raffle tickets for bringing homework in and completing it! This will give them a better chance of earning a prize from the raffle prize box!
Reading is one of our school’s biggest priorities! We want to see children enjoying reading and getting the rewards they deserve!
The Fab 4 reading records, as you know, need to be filled in 4 times a week and every week of the half-term so the children can earn the treat at the end of the half-term.
We also want to get Year 4 to the top of the reading league and earning up to 15 minutes extra play time!
We want children to read their own books, take books from school (that we’ve allowed the children to choose) and share them with others in the Year group. Nothing like a good book swap!
Please encourage your child to come and see us if they are struggling, we are here to help!
