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.
Have a lovely half term.
Mr Forbes and Mrs Tozer.

Spellings tested: 16th October 2017
Revise your spellings for the week and aim to use them in your discussions and writing. We have looked at words ending in /shun/ spelt ‘sion’. We have worked out that the root words either end in ‘de’ or ‘se’.
Last week, we put some spelling strategies for you to use on the blog. Pick one of these strategies to practise this week’s spellings.

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.
Year 4 Homework
Handed out: 4th October 2017
Spellings tested: 9th October 2017
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.
