Thank you to all the parents for coming to parents' evening last week. It was great catching up with you all. As requested by many parents, going forward, there will be a maths task and spelling task for weekly homework. The spelling will continue to go in the front and we ask that you earn 20 points from the spelling menu. The maths will go in the back of the homework book. Also, I have glued in a recommended reading list so that you can look at what types of books your child should be reading in year 4.
As always, homework will be handed out on Tuesdays and expected to be handed in first thing the following Monday morning. Thanks for all the effort you have put in to helping your child with their home learning; it is appreciated!
If you would like to volunteer in school to read with a small group of children, please get in touch with me as we would love to have more adults in school to listen to children reading!
This week's spelling homework (wb 3.12.18) activity is to learn alternate spellings for the 'ay' sound. The words for the next spelling test are:
The maths homework is a sheet based on formal multiplication.
