Thanks for visiting our Year Four page. Below you will find a range of websites and resources that will help your child with their learning. Some of them we already use in school in lessons, so the children will be familiar with them. We hope you have fun!
If you have any questions, or if you would like to send us any learning that you are particularly proud of, you can email:
Mrs Briggs at email@example.com or Mr Lapworth and Miss Keay at firstname.lastname@example.org
Teachers in Years 3, 4 and 5 have been enjoying reading 'The Danger Gang' by Tom Fletcher and we would love to share it with you all. Every Friday, we will upload two chapters of the book on to Streams. To access the story, click on the links below.
Homework will be set weekly in Year 4 and will be uploaded to this section of the class page. Please check back each week to see any new tasks which have been set for you.
This week, we are learning a spelling rule we have looked at in the past to make sure we really know it thoroughly.
Here is our spelling rule for this week:
The n sound spelt kn and gn
Some words begin with the n sound spelt kn.
It is a silent k. Silent k only ever comes before the letter n. This is used in words like:
knock, kneel, knuckle
The n sound at the start of words can also be spelt gn, as in gnat, gnome and gnaw.
The spellings to practise at home are:
knight knuckle gnash gnaw gnome
know knowledge knee knocked knitted
You will also have 2 more individual spellings that are taken from your recent assessments that we would like you to learn.
If you are in Mrs Underwood or Mrs Todd's spelling group, your spellings are personalised to you, so each of you will have the spellings that we think you most need.
Keep practising Year 4... Good Luck!
Week beginning: 10-5-21
