The National Curriculum states that the skills listed below should be embedded by the end of the year group.
Spelling rules and patterns are regularly taught as part of our English curriculum. Alongside the learning in class, children will receive a weekly spelling list as part of their homework.
The word lists below are those which children use frequently in their writing but can often be spelled incorrectly. Some children in Year 4 may still be learning words from Year 1 and 2.
Homework is given out every Wednesday and is to be returned by the following Monday. This consists of:-
- times table practise using 'Times Tables Rockstars' (children use own logins)
- spelling words using 'Spelling Shed' (children use own logins)
- a Maths or English task relating to learning for that week
In addition to this, we ask that you support your children to read at least 3 times a week and record this in their reading record book. Regular reading really does help your child to access all areas of the curriculum.
