The spellings that I ask the children to learn are linked to a spelling pattern that is taught in class and to a specific objective. They will also be given a selection of words from the 'statutory spellings for Year 3 and 4'. Spellings are handed out on a Friday and will be tested the following week.
Please try and encourage your child to write the spelling out and understand how it fits within a sentence. I also encourage the pupils to use fun ways to practise their spellings, such as using bubble letters, fancy letters, writing them in colours, writing them in the air etc.
