Sounds and Syllables
Each week we are going to give you a five words from the Year 3/4 Statutory Spelling list, this is a list of spellings that you need to be able to spell accurately by the time you leave Year 4.
We need you to use your Sounds and Syllables techniques to Say the Word, Snip into syllables, Say the sounds and draw the sound lines and then check your spellings. As this will help you learn them.
Each week some spellings from the previous week will appear to ensure that you keep practising them, we have not made a mistake we are asking you to over learn words that you have already seen before.
We have included a Technique bookmark to remind you what to do and also a separate answer sheet for parents so that they can support you.
Please spend between 5 and 10 minutes every day having a go at this.
Over the past few weeks we have been learning about how to answer addition and subtraction questions using the formal written method of 'Expanded column'.
You homework this week asks you to calculate some subtraction questions, it is important that you use the 'expanded column' method you have been taught at school, to do this.
You don't have to print out the sheet instead you could write out the calculations in your book. You must write down the method, as this is what we want you to practise - do not just do them in your head!
Some questions involve exchanging, some do not. If you want to draw the equipment or use equipment to help you then please do, just like you do in class.
