Autumn Term.

Week Seven

We just wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate all of Year 4 for their hard work and positivity throughout the half term. We are extremely proud of each and every one of them. They are excellent role models for Woodheys, a fantastic achievement.

This half term we have set a fun challenge that requires imagination and creativity, good luck!

This week we are concentrating on vowel sounds. The letter Y can make a long y sound or a short i vowel sound. There are also some other words that have a short i sound that a have some tricky parts to remember.

Week Six

Talking Task

Talking Homework T4W.docx

Talk for writing story 2.docx


This week we are looking at adding the suffix ‘ly’ to a root word to change a word to an adverb. Sometimes a word may already end in a suffix ‘ful’ so it is important to remember to add ‘ly’ not just y.

Week Five

In English, we have been using the book 'Lost Happy Endings' written by Carol Ann Duffy. We have been discussing the possibility of all the happy endings of bedtime stories being lost forever. This week, we have started to learn an alternative ending for 'The Three Little Pigs' and have ben putting actious to it in our Talk4Writing. We would like you to create your own alternative ending to a favourite traditional story. Maybe in your ending the slipper doesn't fit Cinderella. Or how about Goldilocks is charged with trespassing. We look forward to hearing your endings next Friday 16th October.

SPELLINGS We have continued to look at suffixes this week.

We have been looking at how 'ful' can be added to a noun (such as wonder) to create an adjective.

We then looks at how 'ly' can be added to adjectives to create adverbs.

suffix 'ly'

Week Four

In science, we have been learning about the different ways to classify vertebrates. We have asked the children to research some animals that are either mammal, amphibian, reptile, bird or fish - the more unusual the better. You can choose to present the information in any way you like. Your could produce a poster, booklet, information text or even something on the computer. If you make something that you want to send in to us, it can be emailed to (FAO: class teacher)

SPELLINGS We have been working a lot of suffixes recently and how they can be added to root words to create new words. We have been using the correct vocabulary to discuss words (such as identifying their word classes and talking about vowels and consonants).

This week, we have been looking at the suffix 'tion' and how it can be added to a verb to change it to a noun.

e.g. invite can become invitation.   Please find the spelling list below

suffix:  tion
