By the end of Year 4, it would be amazing if you know how to spell all of these words.
In the 'Files to Download' sections at the bottom of this pare, you will find all the spellings that you have been given so far this year. They are organised into spelling patterns which the you need to revise’, checking that you know what the words mean and use them to write a sentence that makes sense.’
In school we are currently writing an explanation text about the human digestion system. Your could write your own about anything that interests you. It needs to describe a process; include headings; technical language; diagrams with captions and sentences with accurate punctuation.
If you wish to write about the digestive system, the BBC Bitesize website has some useful resources and games to help them and the knowledge organiser has a useful diagram.
Literacy Activities: week 1
This week we are learning how to spell the ‘n’ sound at the end of a word when it is spelled ‘gn’.
Try to learn them how we do at school:
Get someone to read a word eg. design
Try to split it into syllables eg. --/---
Spell the first syllable eg. de/---
Spell the next syllable eg. de/sign
Check your spelling against the correct version.
Remember: practise your spellings for 10 minutes every day to help them ‘stick’. Also make sure you understand what the words mean so that you can write them in a sentence that makes sense. There’s no point learning to spell words if you can’t use them!
Read these sentences and then think about where the punctuation should go:
mrs howe has a cat called silas who loves to chase mr howes fingers
silas wants to go to spain for his foreign holiday in august
would you like your lunch silas
Can you remember what nouns are? (Nouns are naming words eg. dog, table, Jeff)
Look at yesterday’s sentences. Can you find all the nouns?
Now look around the room you are in, can you name 10 nouns that you can see?
We can make our story writing better by starting our sentences in different ways. One easy way is to start with 3 adjectives eg.
Exhausted, sweaty and ecstatic, the runner accepted his gold medal.
Excited, curious and nervous, the child went to her first dancing class.
Can you add 3 adjectives to the beginning of these sentences?
The boy ran onto the football pitch.
The witch stirred her cauldron.
The dragon flew through the air.
Imagine your favourite teddy has come to life. Can you write a mini adventure describing where you would go and what you would do? Zebras, you can use the Christmas story where the tree decorations came to life to help you.
