Homework due in on Tuesday 2nd May.
Miss Bartropp’s Maths Set
Title – Can I list properties of 3D shapes?
This week we have been learning how to describe 3D shapes using the language of edges, faces and vertices.
Stars and Hexagons – You have been given a sheet with 6 of the most common 3D shapes on. You must fill in the gaps to show how many faces, edges and vertices each shape has. You may work on the sheet and glue it beautifully into your book.
Triangles and Squares – You must complete the table of 3D shape properties. You have got 6 shapes to think about! You may work on the sheet and glue it beautifully into your book.
Pentagons and Diamonds – You must complete the table of 3D shape properties. You have got 12 shapes to think about! There may be some shapes you do not recognise, or have not been taught. You must look carefully at the picture to help you, and if in doubt you can use the internet (not to look up the answers, but to look up a clearer picture). You may work on the sheet and glue it into your book.
Miss Weston’s Maths Set
This week your homework is set on Mathletics. Please log on and complete the activities which show up. All of the activities are based around shape as this is what we have been learning this week. Remember I can see how long you have spent on each activity, and your scores. I will be checking this on Tuesday morning.
Make sure you are also learning your times tables every day. We will be doing Cracking Times Tables on Tuesday because of bank holiday. We are really going to be cracking down on your scores and improvements so it is important you are really focusing when learning them.
Title – Can I use there, they’re and their accurately?
This week your homework is based around the homophones – they’re, their and there. You need to be able to use them correctly in a sentence.
Cherries and Grapes – Fill in the gaps of the sentences with the correct use of their, there and they’re. The first three have been done for you. You may work on the sheet and glue the sheet beautifully into your book.
Oranges, Pears, Strawberries and Watermelons – We would like you to write 3 sentences using their correctly, 3 sentences using they’re correctly and 3 sentences using there correctly. Please underline your use of the homophone in a coloured pencil.
We will be checking for a date and title and beautiful presentation.
As usual, we expect you to record at least 4 pieces of reading in your Home School Book. We will be collecting Home School Books in on Tuesday because of bank holiday. Please make sure you get an adult to sign your book. It is not acceptable for Home School Books to be late into school, or not to have the relevant reading in. You will be made to miss a break time to catch up if this is not done to the expected standard. Remember you could be reader of the week!
Have a lovely weekend,
Miss Bartropp and Miss Weston
This week, in Miss Hawes’ Maths set, you have been set word multiplications problems. If you have any difficulties, please see Miss Hawes before Tuesday. If you are in Ms Pater’s group you have been set recipe scaling challenges, just like we have done earlier this week.
The last week’s homework of changing tense have made us aware that a lot of you are struggling with this concept a little. This week, you will complete a similar task, this time changing sentences to past tense.
Please don’t change the verb in your new sentence, even if it means the same, we would like to see if you can re-write the verb (in bold) and check if your completed sentence still makes sentence.
You have been given a new spelling list by your teacher and are expected to write at least FIVE spelling sentences to show that you understand what the words mean. Do not pick the five easiest spellings – challenge yourself and use a dictionary to help you. These will be checked next Friday during the next spelling lesson – let’s see who can get 3 house points!
Cracking Times Tables
Please keep working on your times tables and try and beat your score from last week! We will be looking for those children who are really trying to improve each week. The Government state that all children should know their tables from 1-10 by the end of Year 4.
Don’t forget your Home School Book on Monday and make sure you have recorded all of your reading properly. We will be looking for a new ‘Reader of the Week’ and expect AT LEAST four reading entries in the Home School Book.
Well done Year 4 this week, have a great weekend!
As part of our English topic, we have been looking at the Hobbit this week. In the Hobbit, Gollum sets many riddles for Bilbo. We would like you to write 3 different riddles of your own for us to solve in class. They must be based on nature. Write the riddles on one page and the answers on the next page (so the answers can’t be seen).
We have been looking at multiplication and division this week. We have set you 3 multiplication and/or division tasks on Mathletics for you to complete. You may need a pencil and paper to do this. These tasks may take a while to complete so you can stop when you have been working for 30 minutes even if you haven’t finished all the tasks.
Grammar Book 1
Pages 38- 42 Mixed Practice
Grammar Book 1
Pages 52 – 55 – Suffixes and Prefixes

This week you didn’t have any spelling to learn so we have given you some spelling strategies to practise in your grammar book (See Above- Suffixes and Prefixes)
Reading and Times Tables
Please ensure you read 4 times and record this in your Home School Book for Monday. If you haven’t been ‘Reader of the Week’ this year, then push yourself this week to see if you can read more or write better comments! Being ‘Reader of the Week’ would be a great goal to aim for! Make sure you are also practising your times tables, so that you are ready to improve your score or even reach your next level next week!
