“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.”  Aristotle

We are finishing our unit, "Narratives with a theme"  this work is be based on "Mr Stink" and "Billionaire Boy" by David Walliams.  After which you will receive your child's Cold and Hot write.  After which we shall begin a Narrative unit based on fantasy style writing, around Michael Murpurgo's "Butterfly Lion" book.


We will be completing our spelling tests every Friday morning.  This term we are triallinga new way of assessing and developing your child' spelling knowledge.  Usuing the statutory 100 words that should be known by the end of year 4, we are going to use the same 33 spellings each week, until your child has successfully scored 33/33 for two weeks in a row.  They will then move onto the next set of spellings.


We suggest that your child focus on 10 each week, thereby building up week after week.  



SIlver and Gold spelling tests to arrive soon.
