Times Table Rock Stars!

This is another fun online resource which will support your child with learning their times tables through games and competitions with their peers. They will have an opportunity to use it in school once a week but we recommend they access it at home for extra support.

Accelerated Maths is an engaging online resource which targets the children at their level. They have a designated time slot in school once a week to access the tests and practise work that we are covering in lessons. We encourage the use of this outside of school as it will help your child progress in Maths. It would be great if you could spend at least 20 minutes a week on this at home!

Top Tips for Reading at Home!

Read for at least 10 minutes a day.

Read out loud and put expression into what is read.

Discuss what is happening. Can your children summarise what has happened, pick out the important events or read between the lines to tell you something that is implies about a character?

Discuss vocabulary and language. Does your child understand what a word means? Can they put it in their own sentence? Can they think of similar or opposite words.

Make reading together an enjoyable time. As well as reading books from school, your child might enjoy reading magazines, children’s newspapers, journals, sports biographies or children’s annuals.

Take turns to read. This could be a sentence or paragraph .

Spelling

Please see our Parent Planner to see which words will be focused on during this half-term. All the words that we are learning are part of the year 3/4 spelling list and contain common phonic sounds. Please support your children with learning to read, understand and spell each word. These words are important in supporting your child with achieving age related expectations for their year group. We check if children spell these words in context and also during assessment weeks. In school, we have been making the spelling activities as fun as possible; writing the words out of Playdoh, in sand or using different coloured pens. The children have really enjoyed testing each other on these words each week using look-say-cover-write-check.

Please see attached the full list of Year 3/4 spelling words that we will be focusing on this year along with words that the children have previously learnt throughout their time at school.
