Just to clarify the situation regarding homework. We've looked into this, after a parental enquiry, to make sure there is consistency across the school and that we are operating within our school policy. In year 4 we aim to set 90 minutes per week and this doesn't include reading. We recognise that sometimes the English/topic task could take a lot longer, if people really want to engage with it, but the basic requirement can almost always be done in 30 minutes. The other tasks are often games or online activities which the children should ideally be able to complete independently. We recognise that they often spend a lot of time online, gaming and watching videos and we hoped to steer some of this time towards educational sites.
- Spellings have now been set. See letter below for our plan and explanation of this new system. Children will be in one of three groups; Oak, Ash or Elm and there will be sticker in the front of their orange homework book reminding them which one they are in. Please learn the relevant words and these will be tested the following Tuesday.
Extra information for Week of 30th November:
The PTA are organising Christmas hampers again this year as they are always extremely popular and always rather splendid and festive. Please send in your silver items and look out for tickets to be in with a chance of winning.
We've included some maths instant recall facts to practise below - KIRFs. This is ongoing and should bridge any gaps resulting from lockdown. The more secure the children are, the better!
We have learned about simile and metaphor - listen to this great SONG!
PE kits are still to be worm to school on the appropriate days: 4G Monday and Thursday, 4S Thursday and Friday.
Please can we remind you to send in a letter if your child is going to be picked up by anyone other than their mother or father. If it is a regular arrangement, a letter stating that will suffice for the year.
If you are away or isolating then the work will be at the bottom of this page

The usual homework applies and there are always lots more games etc on Purple Mash. BBC bitesize is also good for lots of resources. Do lots of reading and practise all the KIRFs. The powerpoints and worksheets we'll be using in school are below. For the English this week we're working on writing letters. Try writing a few letters to different people. Perhaps one asking for some help with something, maybe one could be a complaint.
