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 which ever 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.
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.

If you want to use more than five of the verbs and create a whole paragraph then please do that as an extra challenge.
The present tense verbs are:
