Homework due in on Tuesday 9th May
In Friday’s lesson we will be teaching the children how to multiply digits using the column method. They may already have an understanding of how to do this and so can get started but they may also want to wait until after this lesson on Friday to do their homework.

Make sure you are also learning your times tables every day. We will be doing Cracking Times Tables on Monday! It is vital that you keep practising and improving on your scores.
Title – Can I use homophones correctly?
This week your homework is about homophones again. You have been given a list of homophones which you must check the meaning of and then put them into a sentence to show that you can use them correctly. Please underline your homophone in a coloured pencil. We will be checking for a date and title and beautiful presentation and handwriting.
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 Monday. 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
Ms Hawes’ Maths Group
LC: Can I find factors and factor pairs?
Find the factors of the numbers in the circles, and write down which ones are the factor pairs. Challenge yourself with finding all the factors of 16, 21 and 23.
Ms Pater’s Maths Group
LC: Can I solve correspondence problems?
This is a follow up activity from our lesson on Monday. Carefully read the problems and show me how you worked them out. Make sure you use Ms Pater’s favourite word when writing the answers!
LC: Can I edit newspaper article?
Building up on the newspaper work we have done in the past few weeks, we believe that you now have the skills necessary to edit someone else’s work! One of our reporters asked, if you would be able to edit the rough draft of his report. Follow the instructions on the sheet provided and write the edited copy into the template. Add a lovely picture to illustrate the story.
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!
This week as part of our continuing work on classic literature, we have been looking at Just William in English. For homework, we would like you to watch a Just William episode on You Tube. There are many 20 minute episodes available. Ask an adult to check you have chosen a good episode to watch. You may choose any Just William episode you like. You will need to discuss this episode in our English lessons next week so you must do this homework. You do not need to write about the episode – just ensure that you remember what happens so you might wish to discuss it with someone at home to help you to remember it. Please write the name of the episode in your Home School Book and ask a parent to sign to confirm you have completed this task.
We have been looking at word problems in this week. For homework, you have a range of word problems which may require addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. The problems may be one step or two step problems. Please read each question carefully and think about which operation you need to do. You must show all the stages of your working out – this should be neat and in pencil.
Next week you will sit your SATs tests. For this reason, we are not setting you any specific homework. It is up to you and your parents to decide what revision you do this weekend. It is important that you focus and work on any areas you find challenging so that you feel confident when you open the test paper next week and can show off how much you have learnt. The test timetable for next week is:
Monday – Reading Paper
Tuesday – SPAG Paper 1 and 2
Wednesday – Maths Paper 1 and 2
Thursday – Maths Paper 3
Friday – No tests! (Unless you need to catch-up)
It is very important that you have a good sleep, a great breakfast and that you get to school on time raring to go.
SATs do not test everything. They do not test how lovely you all are and they do not test your many talents that you have, whether it be dance, drama, singing or sport. We think you have all made fantastic progress this year and shown what a hard-working group of children you are. Next week, all you need to do is try your absolute best and persevere with anything that comes your way. Most importantly, remember to believe in yourself – you can do this and you are brilliant!
