Home Reading

Mrs Vartan and Mrs Scott will collect your home reading diaries every day. There is a ‘Home Reading Book’ box in the classroom for you to put your folder in when you arrive in the morning. If you bring your reading diary in you will get 1 piranha and if you bring your diary in AND a grown-up (or you, if your adults have said you can) has written in it, you will get 2 piranhas on our home reading chart. Remember – your house will get a house point if everyone brings their diary in and they will get 2 house points if everyone has read too!

When you receive 9 or 10 piranhas on the chart, you will be awarded with a Piranha bookmark. Each week after this, you will be awarded with a sticker for earning 9 or 10 piranhas. After you have collected 10 stickers on your bookmark, you will get to choose your own book from Mrs Main-Miller’s office.

 

Home Spellings

Every Friday, your child will bring home ten words to learn in YELLOW home spelling books. These words will include words using the rule being learnt in class during the following week, revising phonic patterns, words from the Year 3/4 statutory spelling list and useful words related to science or topic. They will be tested on these words on the following Friday. In addition, the children will also have a dictation task of three short sentences to practice the skills of listening carefully to a sentence and then writing it, using their knowledge of punctuation, grammar and spelling.

 

Home Learning

As in Year 3, your child will be sent home with a home learning grid at the beginning of each half term. Each week your child will be able to choose two pieces of home learning to complete from a choice of English, Maths and Creative. The grid will contain all of the home learning tasks for the entire half term. It is expected that your child will choose a variety of home learning tasks and Mrs Vartan will keep a record of which pieces are being completed so that all children are accessing ALL areas of learning in one way or another. Mrs Vartan may guide your child with their choices if they would benefit from additional practice in one specific area.

 

Home learning will be sent home on Fridays and will be due back in on Wednesdays, giving your child four days to complete their chosen task. All of the tasks will link as closely as possible to the topic, Maths and English learning that we are doing in class. If there are any problems with your child completing their home learning, please ask them to speak to Mrs Vartan as early in the week as possible so that she can explain the task to them.
