Eastgate Homework: Friday, January 26th

Homework to be returned by Thursday 1st February (as it is inset day on Friday 2nd). 

Maths: Mental Arithmetic – Next Available page.

English: Grammar Punctuation and Spelling – Pages 42 & 43.

Please do ‘Sumdog’ with your child at home. This is an interactive maths game you can play online, or download as an app onto an iPad. The children have had lots of experience with Sumdog, throughout their time in school and are now therefore experts! They each have their own username, password and school code, which most know off by heart, and can share with you. Should they not know the code we have sent a copy of the log in details home with them. Have fun!

Spellings – Please Practise your spellings at home, to know them off by heart by 01.02.18

Handwriting – Please complete the handwriting poem that has been sent home.

Times Tables – Please continue to practise the 7 & 9 times tables at home.

Reading: Listening to your child regularly is still a vital part of their learning journey as you can hear any misconceptions and provide lots of opportunities for comprehension by asking them about their reading, likes and dislikes, events, characters etc. Please encourage your child to read daily and complete this in their reading diary. Encourage your child to reflect on their reading and complete their book review in the free reading diary. Your child will not be able to change their book if it has not been signed by an adult at home or they haven’t read to you at least once.  Please ensure they complete their reading diary correctly, the teaching team provide support in school but it is vital that they are given support at home with this. They should be recording the date and page numbers they have read every time they are reading, whether to themselves or someone else. The children also now need to complete their book review after every book they have read. There are a basket full of blank book reviews in class. These will then be stapled to the page they have been recording reading that book on. Unfortunately they will not be able to have a new reading record until it has been completed correctly.

Please check the blog for an insight into your child’s week at school.

Thank you for your continued hard work, effort and support with your children at home.

The Year 4 Team.
