Year 3 and 4 Home Learning

SPRING 2nd HALF TERM
  
OPTIONAL HOME LEARNING ACTIVITIES
 
Fitting alongside our in-class learning, we have selected a range of activities that your child can choose to complete at home.  These are optional
 
This half-term we are focusing on reading comprehensions that link to our current science topic, Living Things and their Habitats and our current Geography topic, Italy. There will also be an additional research task.
 
SPELLING
The PDFs below are the spellings that your child will be learning each week. The new ones will be added each week.  Encourage your child to get into the habit of doing this regularly.  Help them by testing them too!
 
REGULAR READING
Your child should be bringing home their STAR READER book every day.  The aim is to read at home for 10 - 15 minutes every day and to record this in their yellow Reading Record Book.
 
TIMES TABLES
Times Tables are really key to being a fluent mathematician.
Once again, encourage your child to regularly practice learning their times tables.  We recommend 10 minutes a day. All children have a Times Table Rockstars Login to support them with this.

HISTORY
 
This term in history we are looking in detail at Totnes Castle, as part of our local focus.  Part of this study is looking at castles within Britain, with a specific focus on motte and bailey castles.  
 
Can you choose a different castle somewhere else in Britain to research and find out interesting facts and information about them?  Present your findings in an interesting way!
AUTUMN 2nd HALF TERM
 
These home learning activities are optional and are for the whole of the 1/2 term leading up to the Christmas break. 
 
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.
