Spellings, Times tables and homework:
Children in Herons will be given homework weekly. Every week there will be spellings, times table homework. Other weeks there may also be a small handwriting, comprehension or SPaG activity.
Spellings and times tables will be given out on a Monday, there will be a copy stuck into their homework books and you can find a copy linked below. Spellings and times tables will be tested on a Friday, please ensure your child has their homework book in on these days to complete the test in the back of their books.
This week, Maths and Spellings homework will be handed out in the homework books on Monday the 14th of September, it will be due on Friday the 18th of September. Please can I give a gentle reminder that it is your child's responsibility to hand their book in the homework drawer on the date their homework is due in, this is to ensure it is marked and new homework is stuck in for the following Monday.
At the end of the year 4 all children are now required to take a times table test. It is therefore incredibly important that times tables are practised regularly, in school and at home to help prepare children for this we will be testing different times tables each week. See below which times tables we will testing each week. As year 4 are now revisiting most of their times tables they will also be tested on the inverse methods (division).
