HOMEWORK in Eagles
Due to the current situation, we will not be sending home paper-based homework tasks for this first term in order to avoid transfer of paper between home and school. This will be re-evaluated later in the year.
Children will therefore be expected to do the following tasks at home each week:
Reading – at least 3 times a week for 20 minutes with a comment recorded in reading record.
Please continue to read fiction and non-fiction with your child and record comments in their reading record. Any reading that you can encourage your children to do is fantastic, including newspapers, magazines and online information. Children should record at least three comments in their reading records a week. Children will also read in school independently, as part of group and in whole class reading sessions therefore they should have their reading book and reading record in school daily.
Spelling Shed – at least twice a week for 10-15 minutes
Children already have logins for this website: https://play.edshed.com/en-gb/login
A new spelling list will be set for your child to work on each week and we are able to check the children’s progress with these online.
Times Tables Rockstars – at least 3 times a week for 5-10 minutes
Children already have logins for this website: https://play.ttrockstars.com/
We will log on each week to check children’s progress.
In the summer term, the Year 4 children will be taking a new National assessment called the Multiplication Tables Check.
We would appreciate your support in helping your child to complete these homework tasks.
For term 1, PE will take place on a Thursday and a Friday. Children will need to come to school dressed in their outdoor PE kit on these days. All PE sessions will take place outside in all weathers, so please ensure your child is appropriately dressed.
MATHS, WRITING and READING Key Skills
At Thrupp, we have generated a list of key skills for each year group. These are objectives from the National Curriculum which we feel are essential for your child to achieve before they are able to move on with their learning.
Below are the Non-Negotiables for Maths, Writing and Reading.
Recommended Reading Lists
Below are lists of fantastic books for Year 4 and Year 5 if you would like some ideas about what your child could be reading.
Spelling - word lists
Below are the National Curriculum statutory spelling lists for the words that the children should know by the end of Year 4 and the end of Year 6. Please support your child by practising these words at home.
