Homework for children in Meerkats Class

Maths - Maths homework will be set each Wednesday to be completed for the following Wednesday. Activities are set on Sumdog and your child's login details can be found stapled into their Reading Record books.


Times Tables Rock Stars - Your child has been issued with login details to use this program.  It is important that your child regularly practises their tables to increase rapid recall.    By the end of Year 4 children should know x2, x3,x4,x5,x6,x7,x8,x9,x10, x11 and x12. At the end of Year 4 the children will sit a national online times tables test.  A weekly times table challenge will be set each Friday.  Children will be able to bring their challenge sheet home the same day so keep an eye out for this in their school bag so you can follow their progress.




Meerkats will be issued with their Grammar homework on Fridays and needs to be completed by the following Friday.  They will be provided with a homework pouch to keep homework safe.  Please encourage them to take good care of this pouch and be responsible for its whereabouts.   


Reading - Helmopoly is back!  There have been some changes to the board.   Please encourage your child to read each night for at least 20 minutes and sign their reading record book.  One house point will be awarded for every ten reads recorded and signed by an adult in Reading Record books (yellow)  It would be very helpful if you could highlight each time your child has read ten times as this will reduce the time needed to check all of the reading records! Reading Records will be checked on Wednesdays.


Spellings: Spellings will be tested every Thursday.  Children can practise their spellings using Readiwriter.  Login details are stapled into their Reading Record Books.  


If your child has lost their login details for any of the homework sites, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Jenkins.
