Tuesday: Homework will be set on a Tuesday to be returned for the following Monday.
Thursday: Children will need their swimming kits as we will be swimming at Etwall Leisure Centre on Thursday mornings. There will be 5 sessions per term.
Please help your child learn their spellings. They not only need to be able to spell the words but also understand what each word means and use them correctly in sentences.
Children in year 4 need to have a good grasp of the times tables. To help your child, make sure they can say the numbers in sequence first. Then they need to be able to give answers out of sequence as well as work out the divisions. Encourage your child to practise in lots of different ways. You will find good websites listed on their homework sheet!
