PE

PE will be on Thursdays and Fridays. PE kits, including trainers, must be kept in school at all times.

Homework

In year 3 and 4 children are set English or Maths homework each week. Homework will be given out on a Friday and is due the following Thursday. We expect homework to be completed neatly using a sharp pencil, and ruler, if needed. Rubbing out should be avoided (put one line through any mistakes, as in class).

Spellings/Times tables/Maths Marathon

Spellings and times tables or Maths Marathon are set on Fridays and tested the following week.

Children should also practise recall of related inverses while learning tables’ facts –

e.g. 4 x 5 = 20 and 20 ÷ 4 = 5 or ‘How many fives in 20?’

Children will need to correctly answer each set of tables’ questions 3 times before moving on. They will have a Tables’ card to record their progress

Once children have learned all times tables, inverses and related facts they will have a timed Maths Marathon test every week to improve speed and accuracy.

Reading

Children should read daily for at least 10 minutes. If your child is a free reader they may wish to read silently. It would be helpful if you could ask them some questions to check their understanding and enjoyment, or discuss any unfamiliar vocabulary. Non free readers should read aloud so that the adult listening can check fluency, understanding and pace.
