 Homework Expectations – Year 4 & 5 Homework will be set every Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. Pupils are expected to complete every set task. Generally, homework will be one piece chosen from a selection on the homework grid and a set of spellings to learn. Additionally, children must read and record their reading in their diaries at least three times each week. Work in books is expected to be of the same standard as work in school, with neat handwriting, diagrams in pencil and care take to include appropriate punctuation and good spelling.

Please continue to learn and practice times tables.

We had an amazing trip to the New Walk museum, Leicester. We learnt about Victorian art and compared it to Modern art. We explored the prehistoric area, the Wild Space and learnt about the Egyptians!
