CURRICULUM

HOME LEARNING

Home learning will be recorded by children in their Homework Diary each week.  Children will be set maths homework on 'My Maths' (usernames and logins to follow), spellings to practise and timestables to learn on 'Times Table Rockstars' (logins to follow).  This is in addition to reading at home at least three times each week. 

SPELLINGS

There will be a weekly spelling programme during the term.  For the first half of the term every child will be revisiting previously taught spelling patterns to consolidate their learning.  During the second half of the term, we will complete five spelling sessions a week with the children.  Taught spellings will alternate between Read Write Inc spelling units and the Year3/4 words.

Children will record their spellings for the week in their homework diaries.
