Dear Parents and Carers of Year 4,
As a year group we have decided to change the day in which spellings are sent out. New spellings will be added to Dojo and the school website on a Wednesday. This gives the children a week to learn their spellings before being tested on the following Wednesday.
This week we have been focussing on using spelling strategies to help us learn the Year 4 Common Exception Words. The children have focussed on learning words they find tricky to spell.
We believe in learning spellings in a practical, specific way, with research indicating that these strategies are much more powerful than traditional methods of learning spellings by rote. Strategies that we use are available on the school Website on this weeks spelling page.
Due to having learnt all the common exception words previously, on Wednesday, the children will be tested on 10 random words from the list.
Thank you for your continuing support and understanding.
