Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar
Below are our high frequency spelling words that we will be practising throughout the year using our spelling boxes and then applying into our writing. You can practise these at home using some of our fun activities.
Below are the spelling rules that we will be learning in Term 1.
The 'g' sound spelt 'gue' (as in rogue)
The 'k' sound spelt 'que' (as in unique)
Prefixes: super-, sub-, auto-
We will be practising spelling the words individually and also ensuring we apply them into our writing.
At home you can practise the spelling words through some of the fun games on this page, spotting these words whilst reading and whilst playing on 'Spelling Shed'.
It is really important the children have an understanding of the meaning of these words so that they know when they can apply it appropriately into their writing.
'g' sound spelt 'gue'
|'k' sound spelt 'que'||Prefix super-||Prefix sub-||Prefix auto-|
Which of these games can you try? Which is your favourite? Use either the Year 3 and 4 high frequency words to practise or words from our spelling patterns that you have found or used in school.
Silly sentences - this is a great way to use homophones in context. Write the silliest sentences you can using as many of our spelling words. If you complete them at home, then bring them into school to share with the class.
Code breakers - turn your spellings into a secret code for others to solve.
Spaghetti spelling - practise your spelling words using food at home! Can you spell your spelling words using spaghetti letters or spaghetti pieces?
Punctuation and Grammar
During Term 6, Year 4 will be focusing on using inverted commas when writing speech in their narratives.
Whilst reading, can you change the position of the speech in the sentence? How will the punctuation change?
We will also be looking at developing our use of speech verbs and adverbials.
