Our topic, this term, is the ancient Egyptians. Therefore, this term, our English writing will be about the Egyptians. Some texts that we will use are the Egyptian Cinderella and Secrets of a Sun King. During our English lessons this term, we will focus on fronted adverbials, expanded noun phrases, the use of paragraphs and punctuation.
Spelling and reading
All Year 4 children have been given a copy of the statutory word lists which is a list of words that they are expected to know by the end of the year. Practise these regularly with your child so they are familiar with these. A selection of these words will also make up the final two spellings on your child's weekly spelling homework. Your child can also practise these spellings online if you visit: http://spellingframe.co.uk/ . Here there are activities linked to the spelling rules we will cover over the year, and the statutory word list words.
We love to read in Year 4. If you are not already members of the local library, consider joining so you can have access to lots and lots of books!
