We are starting our writing in Year 4 by looking at an animated version of the story, 'The Black Hat' by Maia Walczak. We will be doing a range of activities including descriptions of characters, creating characters of our own and making them and using our imaginations to predict what we think will happen next in the story (so please don't watch this yet because it will ruin your lessons!).
We will be finding out new reading ranges over the next couple of weeks so your child's reading record will have this noted somewhere soon. This helps your child to choose a book that is appropriate for them and allows them to choose from a wide selection of books which will enhance their comprehension skills.
Once the children have settled into school and are used to the new routines, we will be able to organise spelling groups. Once this has been done, the children will have weekly spellings which will be sent home on a termly overview letter but will also be uploaded on this page of the website.
