Good morning Year 4,

We hope you have all had a great start to your week  😊. Today is Wednesday and what a change from a couple of weeks ago when we were freezing in the snow!

As you’ll see from her morning greeting Mrs Avery is a fan of Wednesdays. What’s your favourite day?

In her class greeting this morning, Mrs Avery has found a happy jingle about Wednesdays!

Your next Teams’ meeting will be tomorrow at 9:00 am. The next assignment will be on Friday, but you’ll be starting it during Science this afternoon.

We’ve pasted a quick reminder of your daily routine here to help you keep track of what you should be doing, but you can do this in an order that suits your working pattern at home.

Catch up with Guided Reading:


Warm-up: Keep practising your spellings. This week: Week 7: Challenge words. These are the Year 3 and 4 Statutory words. You’re expected to be able to spell them correctly in your writing by the end of Year 4. They are a challenge because they don’t necessarily follow any of the rules that we cover.

Spelling weeks 7 and 8

Main task:  Today we’re going to look at the first few pages of our new story. Your task this morning is to predict what you think the story will be about based on what you already know about traditional stories and what you see in the picture.
