Spelling rules from previous years
At the start of the autumn term, we test the children on the Year 1, 2 ,3 and 4 spelling rules to see which ones we need to revisit. These rules are very important and are in many words which we all use on a daily basis, so the children really need to know them and how to apply them. In class, we have been revisiting the rules which most children found tricky...
Week beginning 11/10/21
Tested on: 18/10/21
We have talked about how to use the reading record books as a place to record the book your child is reading, to write down any recommendations, to record new vocabulary and write down the meaning of the word, or phrase, and to write book reviews. There are also two help sheets glued in their books to help you as an adult when you discuss a book with them. At this stage, your child is aiming to read fluently with expression. They also need to check that they comprehend the text, so that is why discussing it is so important. Within the text, there should be are a few words they do not know , otherwise the book is probably too easy for them.
Ideally, your child is reading daily. This can include their book, instructions, newspapers, magazines etc.
We will provide a reading text, or text with comprehension questions, for your child and we might then refer to it the following week in lessons. There may be questions to answer, which you can discuss or record, as you wish.
