Dates for the Diary!
Black History Month- October
We will be celebrating the achievements and recognising the role of black people in history. Watch out for some special workshops too!
In Year 4, children need to be reading with an adult/ older sibling regularly!
Each child has a green reading record that needs to be completed at least three times per week, being signed by whoever reads with the child. You are welcome to make comments or encourage your child to note ideas about what they have read. Children can select books from the class reading corner, the school library or a book from their own home.
Children are also encouraged to use the red Reading Journals (that were given to them last year). Once 8 activities have been completed, children will be able to select a 'Prize Book' to take home and enjoy at any time!
Spellings will be tested weekly in Year 4.
Each week we will work as a class to investigate a new spelling patter, for example words using the pattern 'ou'.
Children are then encouraged to investigate more words at home to be tested on 10 random works on a Friday.
This week's Spelling Pattern- tested on FRIDAY 23rd NOVEMBER
Your test this week will be using the prefixes
im- ir- il- in-
We have learned this spelling pattern before so you should be familiar with it!
Your job is to spell the word correctly and be able to suggest the meaning of the word by looking at the root word.
e.g. impossible, illegible, inoperable, illuminate
**PLEASE NOTE- SPELLING SCORES HAVE BEEN DISAPPOINTING FOR THE PAST FEW WEEKS AS CHILDREN HAVE NOT BEEN PRACTISING AND APPLYING THE SPELLING PATTERN TO NEW WORDS. PLEASE ENCOURAGE YOUR CHILD TO PRACTICE REGULARLY.**
Below is a link to all of the words that children in Year 4 should know how to spell:
P.E will be on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Children need to have the correct P.E. kit for both indoor and outdoor P.E, at school at all times.
As a healthy school, children are encouraged to bring in healthy food e.g. yoghurt, fruit or snack bars, for their break time snack,rather than crisps and chocolate
