Homework due Wednesday 23rd November 2022.
It is important that you work hard to complete each piece of homework to the best of your ability. If you are stuck then ask your teacher BEFORE the due date and we will try out best to help you become unstuck!
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.
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.
Maths KIRF - Each half term your job is to work on a Key Instant Recall Fact (KIRF)
By the end of Christmas, you need to fluent in the KIRF we have set you this term - keep practising your skills. You must be able to add and subtract any 10's or 100's number from any 3-digit number. See the Parent guide below for more details.
This week in class we have been creating persuasive paragraphs and posters to help us to sell our 'Rover Robots'. We have used AFOREST to help us
Three - (Rule of)
For homework this week we would like you to imagine something you would like to persuade people to buy, it could be a chocolate bar, a robot, a new computer game, clothing, a new way of carrying shopping anything.
Give your product a name and then create a persuasive poster, like the one for SLOBBER CHOCS, using AFOREST to help you to sell it.
We have included some examples of posters to remind you and inspire you. Which one of you will persuade us to buy your product?
