Reading  In   Yr   4,   most   children’s   reading   skills   have   been   developed   significantly   enough   for   them   to   leave   behind   the   reading   scheme   and   begin   the   process   of   self selection   of   personal   reading   material.      Each   child’s   individual   reading   skills   are   monitored   and   extended   during   the   Literacy   Lesson,   but   most   children   will   be bringing   home   a   book   chosen   from   the   reading   corner.     As   this   is   a   learning   process,   children   may   occasionally   bring   unsuitable   material   home,   e.g   too   difficult or   easy.      You   can   help   this   process   by   talking   with   your   child   about   their   choices   and   encouraging   them   to   choose   more   appropriate   material.      The   class   teacher will   also   help   children   with   this   process.      With   these   books   will   be   a   reading   diary   and   children   are   asked   to   write   a   short   response   to   the   book   each   time   they read as well as dating the record after each session.  Children are asked to follow this process, at least 3 times a week. Homework The   children   will   bring   home   spellings   which   will   be   reinforced   during   daily   spelling   sessions.      Reinforcing   these   at   home   daily   will   increase   confidence   and   help children   to   learn   them   thoroughly.      The   children   have   a   spelling   record   into   which   they   will   write   details   of   their   weekly   spellings.   Children   will   receive   one numeracy   or   ‘my   maths’   worksheet   and   one   literacy   worksheet   a   week.     These   are   given   out   on     Thursdays   and   are   due   in   on   the   following Tuesday. The   amount of   time   they   spend   on   the   homework   should   not   exceed   30   minutes.      On   nights   where   specific   homework   is   not   set,   the   children   are   expected   to   use   the   time for reading and revision of table facts.  Parents If you need to speak to the class teacher about any aspect of your child’s schooling, please do not hesitate to make an appointment after school.
