Year 3 and 4 Home Learning

SPRING 1st HALF TERM
 
Below you will find a PDF document with the suggested homework activities for this half term. These are purely optional.
 
Spellings
We will share the spellings we are covering each week in class. These are not tested anymore, but from conversations with parents and carers, it was felt useful to share them so you can see what we are focusing on each week. 
 
Times Tables
We recommend that children practice their times tables every day, for at least 10 minutes. They can use their Times Tables Rock Stars log in on the app, play times tables games with you or practice writing them out/finding the answers.  The card game Hot Spots is a great way for you to play with your child to practice their target tables - ask them how to play it! 
 
 
Reading 
Your child should bring their reading book and reading record home each day and we recommend they read to or with you every day for at least 10-15 minutes.  It's a great opportunity to discuss what they are reading, what they think about the characters, what might happen next and any other thoughts they have on it.  Encourage your child to use intonation and expression (prosody) when reading aloud!
