Spellings

Year 4 Spellings 

 

Spellings are set on alternate weeks.  Pupils will have words set one week from the spelling rule focus that is being taught in class i.e. words that spelt 'gu' but sound 'g', for instance guitar or guest etc. 

In class we introduce the spelling rule and generate examples as a whole class, where pupils will then explore and find other examples as part of their guided reading sessions.  Pupil will record these examples in their spelling journals which should come home daily with your child. 

 

On the second week, pupils will be given words from the year 3/4 statutory spelling list.  Pupils will write down that weeks words in their journal and are expected to learn them.  Pupils are given time to practice learning them in school as part of their handwriting practice. 

The statutory spelling list can be found in the middle of your child's reading planner or alternatively on the link below.  These are words that the Government say children are expected to know and spell correctly by the end of year 4.
