By the end of Year 4 the children should be able to read and spell all the common exception words. Find them as a list below and in a Power point to practise reading and spelling at home.
Look at what we have been doing in Year 4.
Welcome back to what is a very short half term. Next week is Science week and we are all looking forward to engaging in some fun activities. In Year 4 we will focus on ways of surviving. This will begin with a visit to Spring Woods to participate in a woodland survival course. The children will learn how to build a shelter, make string from plants found in the woods, build a fire and lastly filter water. Hopefully they will never have to use these skills to use in real life! Remember, please ensure that your child is wrapped up warm and has a water proof coat. Old clothes are essential, as I think we are likely to get somewhat muddy.
For the rest of the term our topic work will focus on geography and the children will learn about compass points and directions.
We only have two more weeks working with Maria Whatton. Both staff and children have thoroughly enjoyed our Wednesday sessions and they have helped the children to produce some fantastic writing based on The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. We would like to thank Maria for the time she has spent with us and her enthusiasm and creativity.
