Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG)
This term, we will be focusing on the new spelling rule of adding prefixes to words. We will be looking at the prefixes un- mis- dis- re- and pre- and their meanings. Can you find any of these spellings in your reading book at home?
(again or back)
We will also be using dictionaries to check our spellings and the meanings for words. To do this we need to know how dictionaries work and how to use our phonics knowledge to find the words we are looking for. Try to practice looking for different words in a dictionary at home, possibly to learn the meaning of a difficult word in their home reading book.
Inverted commas are used to show direct speech, the words that are spoken by a person or character. In our writing we need to use inverted commas to show when a person is talking. We will also be discovering different words for said to make our writing more interesting.
Grandpa Joe said "You mean to say I've never told you about Mr Willy Wonka and his factory?"
"Never" answered little Charlie.
This term, we will be learning how to use co-ordinating conjunctions in our writing.
As a school we use Spelling Shed to support spelling at home. Your child will have been sent home with their username and password in their home learning books. Spelling Shed has personalised spellings to practise for your child. You can also reach Maths Shed through this link.
