Reading: we will complete our reading assessment papers based on 3 different texts using all our reading and comprehension skills.

Reading homework: Keep reading daily- reading for just 10-15 minutes a day can have several benefits, such as improving concentration and memory, improving mental stimulation, expanding your vocabulary, improving your sleep quality, and reducing stress. Goldfinches are doing so well with this so please keep it up!

Maths: We will combine our knowledge of lots of areas of maths in our maths assessments.

The National Multiplication Check is now complete however, we will be continuing to work on our times tables every day by using games, online games, worksheets and tests in class. Look out for paper copies of activities and games I’m sending home to support with recall and fluency.

Maths homework: Continuing to play a game on the Maths Frame Multiplication Check will continue to help build their fluency and to end year 4 and begin year 5 with as much confidence as possible.


Other fun games to try:




PE: Monday, Tuesday and Friday.
