Homework/ Spellings

Homework in Year 4


Pupils in Year 4 are expected to complete the following activities on a daily basis (although this may only be for 5 or 10 minutes at a time - little and often works best!):

  • reading
  • practising times table facts
  • practising weekly spellings/ words from the Y3/4 list


Weekly spellings will be given on a Tuesday and tested on the following Tuesday.


There will also be three homework projects set over the year, which will be in Terms 2, 4 and 6.


Please do not hesitate to come and see me if you have any questions regarding homework, or would like any of the Year 4 strategies etc. explained to you.



Autumn Project – Ancient Egyptians

Please find below the details of the Y4 Autumn Project focussing on the Ancient Egyptians. To mark the end of our History project, I am challenging the class to become an expert in an area of the topic which they found particularly interesting. The document attached explains the three types of project that could be submitted: model, presentation or bake. You will only need to choose one option.


I look forward to seeing what you enthusiastic historians have been up to on Monday the 14th of December. Any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
