This week's Spelling focus
Before October half term, children will be given a new spelling folder and will be given the Year 3 and 4 spelling words. These words should be revision for them and they have until 22nd October to learn any of the words that they don't know. Children should know the definitions of all of these words too. On 22nd October children will be tested on a random 25 of these words. They should be aiming for at least 20/25.
After October half term, a new spelling rule will be taught each week during our spelling lesson on a Wednesday and the children will be tested on the rule the following Wednesday. Each child has a spelling folder and these should be in school everyday, we will be doing different activities throughout the week to further practise the rule. This should be done alongside revision at home. Spelling practice can take any form that the child wishes, as long as they are learning the rules.
Children could use Spelling Shed to practise the spelling rules each week if they wish. Each child has a log in.
