Sounds and Syllables
Each week we are going to give you a five words from the Year 3/4 Statutory Spelling list, this is a list of spellings that you need to be able to spell accurately by the time you leave Year 4.
We need you to use your Sounds and Syllables techniques to Say the Word, Snip into syllables, Say the sounds and draw the sound lines and then check your spellings. As this will help you learn them.
Each week some spellings from the previous week will appear to ensure that you keep practising them, we have not made a mistake we are asking you to over learn words that you have already seen before.
We have included a Technique bookmark to remind you what to do and also a separate answer sheet for parents so that they can support you.
Please spend between 5 and 10 minutes every day having a go at this.
Maths Homework - Key Instant Recall Facts (KIRFs)
Each term we are asking you to master a set of Key Instant Recall Facts or KIRFS. You need to be able to recall these facts, as the title suggests, instantly. If you learn these each term it will make all Maths easier because you will have the facts at your finger tips.
This term the KIRFs are to be able to:
Add and Subtract 10's and 100's using a given number.
Attached is an information sheet for parents with ideas as to how you can practise this skill.
Below you will also find some other activities to complete as part of your homework for the week.
Your aim is to be able to recall the facts instantly by Christmas.
You will then be given a new KIRF in January.
