At Elworth Hall, we value our parents support in all that we do. Home Learning is to consolidate all that we do in school.
Reading: Year 4
Children in Year 4 should read 5 times a week to develop their skills in fluency and comprehension. Where possible, this reading should be shared with an adult. We regularly use the reading assessment tool from our reading scheme - Collins Big Cat to help teachers understand what level our pupils are reading at. This assessment explicitly assesses pupil’s instructional and independent reading levels, using unseen, meaningful texts. Children are assessed by staff, as and when appropriate, to determine their book band. Children will bring home a banded reading book from school to read at home.
Please note that books and reading records should be in school every day. Reading books will be changed on a Tuesday.
The children will complete a spelling task every week. They will be issued with words from their spelling lessons and they should use their favourite strategy to learn these words. They will be assessed on these every Tuesday.
The children will complete a maths task every week. This may be an online activity, an activity sheet or a game. Homework is issued on Monday and must be returned the following Monday for checking. The children will complete a times table tracker activity every Friday.
