Spellings!

Practising your spellings will help make your writing better!

Here are a list of the Year 3/4 words children are expected to know by the end of year 4. Why not practise these at home so you can take part in our next ‘Spelling Bee’ competition?

Some fun ways to practice spellings:

Consonant Circle – write out each of your spelling words and then go back and circle all of the consonants in your words!

Upper and lower – write your spelling words two times each. First, write each word in UPPERCASE. Second, write each word in lowercase.

Silly sentences – Can you put your spelling words into silly sentences?

Across and down – Write each of your spelling words across then down.

Connect the dots – Write your spelling words in dots, then connect the dots by tracing over them in a coloured pencil.

Squiggly words – Write your spelling words in normal letters and then squiggly letters.

Backwards words – Write your spellings forwards then backwards.

Bubble letters – Write your spelling words in bubble letters.

Colourful letters – Write each letter of your spellings with a different coloured pencil.

Remember you can use the Spelling Shed app/website to practise as well!

Book reviews!

Why not read as many books as you can whilst you are at home?

Once you have finished as book, why not write a book review so you can tell someone all about it?

What is the title of your book?

Who is the author?

Who are the characters in your book

What happens in the story?

Did you enjoy the book? Why/why not?

Who would you recommend the book to? Why?

Memorable Experience

To kick start our new topic, ‘Scrumdiddlyumptious’, Year 3 went on a trip to Morrisons where they walked through the fresh fruits and vegetables and dairy aisles. To make this experience more enriching, once back at school, the children then explored the prices of different fruits and vegetables and learnt about the various countries they originated from.

Writer of the week

The writer of the week is Freddie Holley for writing a really impressive recount on Year 3’s memorable trip to Morrisons. He successfully used adverbs of time and wrote his recount in paragraphs. Well done Freddie!
