Together We Can Achieve Excellence


Home learning is key to extending our pupils' education. In Class 4 this also serves to prepare our pupils for the demands and challenges of secondary school. 

This learning is expected to be completed at the same high standard of school work, in handwriting pen or pencil (to match the writing tool used in school). It is designed to not take a large amount of free time but enough time to ensure pupils are exercising discipline, maturity and time management in order to complete the tasks they are set. 

Pupils in Class 4 receive:

  • Homework is an independent learning task set to last 3-5 weeks. The children will be given a choice of focus and presentation type. The end product will be a presentation on what the children have learnt. Pupils may work in pairs to complete and present their presentation. The task has been uploaded below.
  • Spellings (set on Friday, practised throughout the week and tested the following Friday. 
  • Reading (to be ongoing, with 4-5 entries per week expected in pupils' Reading Record books). Records are regularly checked at school to verify pupils have at least three entries per week, with the entries written in by an adult, not just signed off. 

Please ensure that your child is completing this work as independently as possible, but of course help is encouraged where required. A quick note in their book will notify me of the help they have received. 

If you need extra copies of our school spelling list, please find these on the Curriculum (Spellings) Page, by clicking here!

In addition, by the end of Year 6 pupils are expected to know the Year 5-6 Statutory Spellings included in the document at the bottom of this page.
