Friday 15th March - Please help your child learn the words for our Easter Production (below)
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. This is the last set of spellings.
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: natural bicycle eighth regular opposite material length separate mention suppose decide circle
Group 2: good half happy have help here home house how hurt just keep
Maths: We would like you to help your child to tell the time on an analogue clock. These are the steps:
o'clock, half-past, quarter past, quarter to;
times past the hour;
times to the hour;
finding time differences.
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'.
