This week, we have been looking at apostrophes. We worked out that apostrophes can show possession (Ben’s disobedient dog galloped across the field chasing pigeons) and omitted letters (was not – wasn’t).

You are to read the following passage and include apostrophes where required to show possession and omitted letters.

When I arrived at my school this morning, I couldnt believe my eyes! There were only 11 boys and 8 girls in the classroom. Theyll be really bored with what I have planned, I thought. I shouldve organised something different for them to do. They wouldnt enjoy what Id set for them. Suddenly, I had a brainwave. Ill get them to write a paragraph with lots of missing apostrophes. Like the one youre reading now. Theyd love that. Theres nothing more exciting than writing a paragraph with missing apostrophe’s. WOW! Its the best thing EVER! They wont want to miss out on this! My thought was broken by the phone ringing. It was Mr. Benson. “Are you missing lots of children?” he asked?

“I am indeed – do you have any idea where they all are?” I replied.

“Well, Sarahs mum called to say she was poorly; Jakes dad said he had a bug; Lukes dad said he has the flu; Chloes mum said they had to turn the car round on the way to school as she nearly threw up and we havnt heard from James mum. There must be something going around!”.

This week we would like you to focus on numbers in the 3 times table. However, we are particularly looking at dividing numbers by 3 as we have been working on division this week. Answer the following questions and be ready for a rapid test next week.

Remember, division is the inverse to multiplication so 21 ÷ 3 is the same as 3 x ___ = 21

 

21 divided by 3

18 divided by 3

27 divided by 3

33 divided by 3

12 divided by 3

15 divided by 3

9 divided by 3

Year 4 Half Term Homework

Hello

As you are aware, we have a Battle of the Bands competition this half term between Mr Forbes’ and Mrs Tozer’s classes. Every time you visit Times Table Rock Stars you will earn coins for your class. Therefore, not only will you be improving your knowledge of the times tables, but you will also be earning valuable coins for your class.

Spellings will be tested on the first Thursday back as we are aware the children who usually collect a paper copy of the spellings did not receive these on Friday.

The spellings, which we looked at during the beginning of the week, are below. You will be aware if you are learning the ‘sion’ spellings or the ‘ly’ spellings.

expansion
extension
comprehension
tension
corrosion
supervision
fusion
conclusion
persuasion
suspension

 

quickly
kindly
safely
rudely
sweetly
strongly
bravely
secretly
finally
usually

Have a lovely half term.

Mr Forbes and Mrs Tozer.

Year 4 Spelling Update 4.10.17

I know that some people are struggling to access the homework link on certain devices so I have included the homework within the post below.

Unfortunately, the maths involves a  word search which cannot be copied into the post and that is why it has had to be included as an attachment.

 

For those who cannot access the link, please speak to Mr Forbes or Mrs Tozer to get a hard copy of the homework.

Hope this helps.

Revise your spellings for the week and aim to use them in your discussions and writing. We have looked at homophones this week (words with the same pronunciation but different meaning).    Whilst these spellings may not seem too difficult, the focus is on using the correct word for the sentence and meaning intended.

meddle              medal               mist          missed              scene

seen                  bored                board                which       witch

Using one of each the homophones, come up with some compound sentences (2 main clauses) and underline the homophone used.

Here is this week’s spellings and times tables.

It is becoming evident from speaking with some children that some are not practising their spellings at home. This must happen for the spellings and spelling rules to be embedded in your learning.

 

Some spelling activities and strategies are attached for you to have a look through and try over the coming weeks. See what works best.
