In Year 4, the homework expectation is:

  • To read to/with an adult every day.
  • To  learn spellings off by heart. 
  • To complete a range of activities from the topic homework menu 
  • To learn maths facts over a week (including regular use of TT Rockstars)


If you have any issues regarding homework, please do not hesitate to contact us via email on:





Please encourage your child to read daily. As children get older it is still important for parents/carers to read with their children, discuss new vocabulary and ask questions to check understanding of their book as well as to support accurate reading.

Children’s reading records must be signed by a parent/carer after hearing them read.

Reading records should be brought to school daily and will be checked by class teachers each week (Thursday) for the reading raffle. 

Reading x 3 a week: children will get a sticker and 5 dojos

Reading x 5 a week (or more!): children will get a sticker, 5 dojos and a small prize. 



Weekly spelling lists will be given out in the children’s homework book at the beginning of each half term. Please practise these spellings frequently throughout the week leading up to the spelling test each Thursday. Spelling tests will be completed on paper and returned to parents inside their Reading Record books so that you can keep an eye on how they are progressing. 



Weekly mathematics facts will be given out in the children’s homework book at the beginning of each half term. Please encourage your child to practice these frequently so they know them off by heart.

Don't forget to play Times Table Rockstars (3 minutes a few times a week is ideal)

Topic homework can be chosen from a list of creative and fun activities which are given out each half term. We ask Year 4 to complete 4 of these tasks each half term. Children can write/draw in their blue books, take photos, make models or use computers to record their work. 

Please see the grid below for hand in dates. 

Miss Mason and Miss Peace look forward to seeing your wonderful topic homework. :)
