Each week the children will be given a list of words to learn in school. They will not be bringing their spelling journals home however, if you wish to work with the children on the words, I will add them here. We are currently revising the Year 4 list and looking at any patterns that are emerging including double letters. We encourage the children to use a range of strategies when learning spelling including learning the syllables of a word, clapping out the sounds and looking for words within words. It is also useful to learn the word as it is spelt rather than how we say it for example when learning business we would say bus in ess. This is also how we would split the syllables. Spelling frame is an excellent resource to use to practice spellings.
