       Home learning:     

In this section you will find the resources and ideas that have been set for Year 4. There is also a timetable that you could use during this time, should you need it, click here.

We would just like to remind everyone that you do not need to do every task that are on the overviews. These ideas and resources are there for you and your child to select from that will interest them and something that they will enjoy doing.

What matters most to us all at Radleys is that our children are happy and feel safe. So please read lots of books, fiction and non-fiction. Make Maths fun-count, add up, take away, have multiplication competitions. Please also make sure that you play, talk, sing, dance, make, create and get some fresh air, enjoy the sunshine when we have it.

We will keep updating you all with many ideas and resources that you can explore. We will try to make work as fun, engaging and interesting as we possibly can but enjoy learning, be creative and make memories!

Take care and stay safe.

Homework in Year 4

  • It is expected that children read at home, every night, to an adult and that this is recorded using their reading records. If children are reading other texts at home, for example; newspapers, comics, novels, non-fiction etc. then please record these into their reading records as I would love to see the texts that they are choosing to read at home!  

 

  • It is important for children to practice their times table facts to ensure that they can rapidly recall these facts and to also aid their confidence. Please use Times Table Rockstars for this.   

 

  • Spellings will be given out every Friday and should be learnt at home, ready for a spelling test the following week. We will be learning the spelling patterns/rules within class whilst finding out their meanings and attempting to use the words, where appropriate, within our writing.  

 

  • Projects will continue to be given in conjunction with our half-termly curriculum themes. Projects may include models, pictures, information etc. and each child will be given a green book to record their project work into. Last year, we had so many amazing projects completed and we really do appreciate the time/effort put in by all adults who help to compete these alongside the children.  

P.E. Information and Expectations

P.E. will be taught each week on a Thursday morning. Please ensure that your child has their full P.E kits in school, at all times. All children should have black shorts, a red t-shirt and black pumps. For outdoor P.E. lessons, children may wear black jogging bottoms as oppose to shorts.
