Homework due Thursday 2nd March 2023 (World Book Day!)
In Year 4 you will need to be able to recall ALL the times tables to help you be successful on the Government given 'Times table check up', so NOW is the time to start practising (if you haven't already done so).
Even more importantly, times tables are a very handy tool to have when tackling an awful lot of maths both at school and out there in the real world!
Part of your homework is to learn the times table you have been given. You need to be able to recall it quickly (in under 5 seconds a question) and out of order. Whilst counting in twos, or whichever table you are working on, is a good skill it is not efficient enough to allow you to recall facts at speed.
The second part of your homework is to log on to TT Rockstars and complete at least 10 minutes worth of challenges per day when you can. This is really good practise for the Government check-up and may also help your class to win in the Battle of the Bands. Who will be the winners this week?
This half-term's KIRF (Key Instant Recall Facts) - To count in multiples of 50 and 100.
Don't forget to practise your KIRFs while you are at home!
Great learners read.
A book can take you to places and on adventures that you can't experience in real life! So, the next part of your homework is to read EVERY day where possible.
You can read to someone or to yourself, it can be an actual book, a magazine, an online book (Bug Club) or on a kindle or other electronic device. It can be a book from school, the library or from your own shelf. You can even have someone else read to you! Just make sure that whatever you read you write it in your journal with your own thoughts or comments.
World Book Day - Reading Super Hero!
As you know it is World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March, the theme for the day is 'Reading Superheroes!'
For homework over half term we would like you to create your very own Reading Superhero.
You need to give them an appropriate name that lets people know they are a Reading superhero; decide what they might wear and think about what their superpowers might be, you might even think about where your hero is in the picture.
Once you have made these decisions we need you to create a picture of your Reading Superhero, you could do this using any art materials available to you. Make the picture as detailed as you can. Then around the outside of your character we need you to put words to help describe them and to show us what their super powers are and how they use them to promote or save reading.
