Paperless home learning!

This half term in class Adams we are going to be trialling paper free home learning. This will support our Eco Schools work towards reducing paper waste in school. We hope that you will support us in this by looking at the class blog each week to see what the home learning will be. See below for this week's home learning.

Three core activities will always be listed, these are

  1. .Regular reading at home. This has many benefits including: developing a positive relationship with reading that can last till adulthood, widening of vocabulary and grammar, deepening of text comprehension.
  2. .Weekly spellings. These will be looked at throughout the week including any associated spelling rules. Testing will take place on either a Thursday or Friday.
  3. .Times Table Rock Stars (TTRS). We highly recommend using this application regularly to help build up quick recall of multiplication facts. By the end of year 4 pupils are expected to know all of the times tables to x12 including associated division facts. We have seen an improvement in those pupils who already use TTRS regularly. If you have any queries please speak to either one of us.

In literacy we will be looking at myths and legends by studying Beowulf, the the oldest surviving epic poem in the English language. Perhaps the ultimate superhero story, this epic poem has adventure, monsters, dragons, and, of course, a good hero.

In other areas of the curriculum we will be, exploring electricity in Science and getting to grips with multiplication and division in maths.
