We are concentrating on Reading to enhance writing this half term and taking time to really understand what we are reading. Along with listening to your child read please ask them questions about the language the author has used in the story for effect, description of the characters and analyse unfamiliar words. Also listening to you read to them will help improve their understanding of texts.
Please practise times tables at home with your child.
It is NOW statutory nationally that children know all their times tables by the end of year 4. They will continue to be given a specific table each week to learn so keep testing them throughout the week. They will not be given the next table until they have completed the last and they get a great sense of pride when they achieve each table.
PurpleMash has some great activities to help your child with their tables, find them here:https://www.purplemash.com/#tab/home/tabletoons

Please click here for the latest homework sheet. These homework tasks are designed to be fun, inspiring and child directed.
Please work together with your child to complete 3 tasks from the selection on the sheet. The way you present the work is entirely up to you.
Please listen to your child read as often as possible. Studies show that children make more progress when they complete regular reading at school and at home and we hope you will take every opportunity to read and discuss with your child a range of texts. We will aim to change the books at least every other day if they have read. Please write notes, comments and questions in their reading diaries.
