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 23rd October to learn any of the words that they don't know. Children should know the definitions of all of these words too. On 23rd October children will be tested on a random 25 of these words.
After October half term, a new spelling rule will be taught each week during our spelling lesson on a Tuesday and the children will be tested on the rule the following Tuesday. 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 should be using Spelling Shed to practise the spelling rules each week. Each child has a log in which is stuck into their reading record.
