Home Learning with BBC Bitesize.

 

Please follow the link below to take you to the BBC Bitesize Home Learning Page. This link will take you to tomorrow's English lesson (24th April).

I would love to see some of the hashtags you come up with!

Writing Tasks W/B 20th April

On this powerpoint, there are three different writing tasks, all based upon images. When writing, remember we are trying to produce extended pieces of writing in Year 4. Make sure you add lots of detail and make it interesting to read. Editing is an important skill, so make sure you check your work to ensure you have used correct punctuation and spelling. 

Statutory Spellings for Year 3 and Year 4

Check to see whether you can spell all of these words! Practise makes perfect - so try writing sentences using these words. 
Please use the sheets to practise your spelling. If you have a dictionary at home, please use it, or you could use an online dictionary.

Writing Activities (Uploaded 1st April)

The Literacy Company have created a set of free resources to engage children in writing activities when working at home.  There are ten different activities to complete - remember to pace yourself - you could complete one activity per day. 

 

Read the task carefully and make sure you think about the skills you will need to use to write successfully. Try to include all of the things we have been learning about in Y4: fronted adverbials (don't forget the comma!) expanded noun phrases, embedded clauses and higher level vocabulary. When you have finished your task, read over your work and make sure you are happy with it. Then read your work aloud to your family.
