Year 4 – Morisot – Miss Howard
Our team consists of myself, (Miss Howard,) Mrs Chambers and Mrs Collis the year 4 classroom assistant.
Morisot class’s PE sessions are every Monday and Thursday afternoon.
Maths homework will be set on a Thursday and will be due in on the following Tuesday. House points will be awarded for homework that is complete, and produced to a high standard.
Spelling homework will be set weekly on a Monday and tested on the Friday. Spellings will be written on a separate sheet (not in homework books) and will be handed in to me by your child, so that they can collect a house point for completed spelling homework. If your child is becoming confident with a set of spellings, see if they can tell you the meaning of the word. Can they put the word into a sentence? Make sure they understand the meaning of the words, as well as being able to spell them.
It is still very important to continue listening to your child read, once a day if possible. Asking questions about the text that has been read will enable you to see if your child has understood their book.
Example questions you can ask your child while reading:
- What do you think might happen next? (Making predictions.)
- Who is your favourite character and why? (Giving an opinion.)
- What does this word mean/can you think of a similar word? (Word meaning.)
- How do you think that character is feeling and why? (Inference.)
Practising all of these different comprehension reading skills, will support your child in their reading and writing in school.
