Every week your child will be set homework on Spelling Shed, TT rockstars and occasionally Purple Mash. You child will be listened to read in school but it is important that you listen to your child read at least three times a week and sign their diary. As we know reading is a life skill.

Thank you for your support with your child's learning. 



Nationally all Year 4 children are tested on the knowledge of their timetables. We are doing lots of practice in class and it would be really useful if children practice this skill at home as well. 

Children can use Purple Mash or TT rockstars to help.
