This term, we will be setting spellings for children to learn each week. The children will be tested on the words in a dictation passage. The results will be stuck into the children's home learning books so you can see how well they are doing.
The words are based solely on the list of Y3/4 statutory spelling words from the DfE English Appendix 1. They give the children the chance to practise these spellings in context and are aligned with the National Curriculum 2014 requirements for Writing: Transciption (Spelling) where children are expected to 'write from memory simple sentences dictated by the teacher.'
Each week there will be two lists (group 1 and group 2). The majority of the children will do group 1 spellings. Your child will know which group of spellings they are learning. This week's spellings are below:
Group 1: popular important calendar busy history pressure extreme imagine experience appear heart breathe
Group 2: move grass plant path which water everybody climb break old could floor
Maths: We have set up learning on Active Learn.
Please remember, children are also expected to read for at least 10 minutes daily and also use mathletics and bug club. Also, our new website 'Times Tables rock stars'.
