Topic Homework

We would like you to do some research on the Tudors, which will be our topic next term. You will need to research your chosen topic and then decide how you are going to present it. Here are some suggested topic ideas, to which you are welcome to add your own:

  • Tudor Housing
  • Tudor Clothing
  • Tudor Food
  • Tudor Battles
  • Famous Tudors

You may wish to present your project in the form of:

  • Artwork
  • PowerPoint
  • Booklet
  • Diary
  • Use your imagination (in previous years, we have even been treated to traditional Tudor biscuits and scale models of Tudor houses!)

We are expecting high-quality work and therefore the project needs to be completed and in school by Wednesday 25th April. We look forward to seeing all your hard work!

Mathematics Homework

Please also complete one test of M.A. and hand it in as usual by Wednesday 18th April. Wishing you all a very Happy Easter.


Handed out: 28/03/18
Due in: 18/04/18


In Year 4, children are required to complete one MA test every week. This will be set on a Friday and handed in by the following Wednesday at the latest. It is imperative that all corrections are completed before starting a new test. However, if your child is struggling to correct these, they should feel free to ask his/her teacher for any help required.


In Year 4, English homework is set every week on a Friday and handed in by the following Wednesday. Please ensure that all work is completed to the high standard of presentation and content we would expect in the classroom.


It is expected that the children read every day for a minimum of 20 minutes. This could be reading to an adult aloud, independently or sharing a book together. It is important that the comprehension and understanding of the text is checked regularly. Please record your child's reading in their yellow reading record. This may be done by an adult or by the child themselves.

Termly Spellings

Please find below the spellings for Year 4 for this Autumn term. We would appreciate if you would help your child to learn and use these words in context.

Your child will bring home a blue spelling homework book and we would like your child to spend 20 minutes each week showing evidence of regular practice.  This may take the form of 'Look, Say, Cover, Write and Check'; mnemonics; rhyme; rainbow writing; pyramid writing; wordsearches; silly dictations; using images and pictures to aid memory; practical games or Apps on a tablet such as Squeebles.

Spring 1 spellings will be tested in the week beginning 05/02/18, Spring 2 spellings in the week beginning 19/03/18.
