Year 4: 30 mins per evening (max)
Homework is used to enhance and support the learning which takes place in school; it should not be a chore or battle. Little and often is the best way.
- sharing a book- daily reading is important- we expected children to have read at least 5 times a week
- learning weekly spellings and practising the Year 3 and 4 words
- learning multiplication tables
Additional homework, which may take the form of research or investigation, or if a child needs more practice in maths and English, will be given out on a Thursday. It will need to be completed at home and returned the following Thursday.
Reading Diaries will be checked every Monday so please make sure that they are in school on this day.
Helping your Child to Read at Home
Pupils should use Spelling Shed to practise their weekly spellings in a fun interactive way. However, it is still important to practise writing them down and putting them into sentences because this helps with muscle memory.

By the end of Year 4, pupils will be tested on their rapid recall of their multiplication tables to 12x12. Therefore, you can practice beating your score at home and in school, using Times Tables Rock Stars online. All pupils in Year 3 and 4 have a log in and can access it at anytime.
