Year 4 Homework Expectations

Daily Reading & Book Discussion

Try to read every day, discussing your reading with an adult. Use the questions on your reading bookmark to help you talk and record your reading.

Every time you read, discuss a question from your reading bookmark with an adult and record this in your reading record (try to vary the questions).  

Reading record books will be checked regularly and should be handed in on Tuesday.

Daily Spelling

You will have a list of 5 words that follow a pattern or rule to learn each week. Use the multi-sensory activity menu in your homework book to learn your spellings. Please ensure you understand what the word means and can use it in the correct context.


Daily Times Table Practice

 I expect 3 minutes of daily times table practice on Garage, Times Table Rockstar (


You can then choose to do additional times table practice by using the activity menu in your homework book or on the websites below:

Year 4 Reading Record Bookmark

When you listen to your child read, there are a number of things to remember:

  1. Make it fun! Use different voices and take it in turns read to each other. Children should try to read every day for 15 minutes and ideally 3 times a week with an adult.
  2. Ask questions about the text, the characters, the plot, the setting, the style of writing, and the words. Anything to get them to think about what they are reading and to consider the deeper messages hidden in the subtext – use the questions on their reading bookmark to help you. There are also some questions on the Bethany homework tab which may help.
  3. Read a wide range of writing – from comics to newspapers, poetry to plays, novels to Pokémon cards, and even just menus and signs when you are out and about!
  4. Look up individual words in a dictionary together to find out what they mean.
  5. Be a good role model for reading. This is the perfect excuse to curl up on the sofa, forget the chores, and read a good book yourself!
