Hi Year 4, Mr Washington here. 

We've made it. The final week in Year 4 :( This is no where near the way I would have liked to celebrate the end of the year with you. Even just in the first two terms you all progressed so well and truly amazed me with the sheer amount of maturity you have gained since Year 2. It has been a pleasure to teach you all again this year and I wish you the best of luck next year and a marvellous Summer break.

Spellings

For this week and over the Summer holidays I have attached the Y3/4 Statutory Spelling list for you to recap and ensure you know before Year 5. 

Spelling Poster

Below are the links to sheets and websites which can be completed to supplement the activities above. I have updated many of the below sections as well as adding new games and links!

You all have your TTRS log ins and could practise as many times as possible on this. I will have records of who completes the most soundchecks and there will be dojos for those children!

I have set seven new mymaths tasks. This equates to one a week but if you're feeling super mathsy and do more than one remember in another week you could try to improve your score on a previous task.
