Spellings are given to the children on a Monday, and tested on Monday. They are either taken from personal spelling lists or based on whichever spelling rule we are learning in class. We sometimes test children on other words which follow the same rule, to check their ability to apply it, so please encourage them to explain the rule whilst learning their spellings.
Spellings will be recorded in diaries on a Monday, so it is essential that they are in school. If children do not have a diary, they will record their spellings on a sticker that can be put in at a later date.
During Spring 1, Year 4 will be focusing on a different set of Homophones each week. We have attached a copy of the spelling words for you to print off if needed. Please ensure your child practises their spelling words at least 3x per week, and are prepared for their Spelling Test on a Monday morning.
