Year 4 Homework
Maths Homework Timetable
Spellings for Autumn 1
Autumn Term Extended Homework Challenges
Year 4 Homework
We expect the children to read at least three times a week for a minimum of 10 minutes in Year 4. They should record this in their school planners. We ask parents to sign this weekly. After finishing a book, the children should log onto the Accelerated Reader website https://ukhosted77.renlearn.co.uk/1895450/Public/RPM/Login/Login.aspx?srcID=s to complete a comprehension quiz to show their understanding of the text. Children should then record their score in their planner. Planners are only checked on Monday by class staff.
Once you have read a book, click on Accelerated Reader – type in the book name (not all books have a quiz) – click on take quiz and work through the questions – you can take a vocabulary test afterwards if it is offered to you.
Children will be explicitly taught spelling rules within class. Spelling lists will not be sent home for learning as children will not sit weekly tests however, children are expected to use Spelling Shed weekly to practise their spelling rules and common exception words but the more they practise the better their outcomes will be. They can play any of the games available. https://play.edshed.com/en-gb/login
Times Tables - Times Table Rockstars will be set every other Tuesday; children are expected to complete the challenges that have been set. Children are encouraged to continue to use this programme or Maths Shed to practise their timetables on a daily basis. Links are; https://www.ttrockstars.com/ and https://play.edshed.com/en-gb/login
When homework is set on TTRS, sections will be greyed out so they can't access anything other than their homework. A headphone symbol will appear which tells them how many games have been completed out of the amount set.
Download the free app onto any touchscreen device (iPad, Kindle Fire, Android Tablet etc.) You can also access through the Doodle Maths website.https://students.doodlelearning.com/
-This app is tailored to your child's ability level in Maths. All children have completed a Doodle Maths baseline assessment in school so that they can work through the questions as often as they like (collecting stars along the way) at their own pace and a suitable level for each individual child. This app/website covers all areas of the Maths curriculum.
More information can be found at www.doodlelearning.com
-When homework is set for the children on alternate Tuesdays, it will be displayed as a green circle with the heading; 'Extras.'
