Spelling and Maths Facts – Year 4

Autumn 2

Spellings

Your child will participate in a spelling test every Thursday. They will be tested on all words/tables; however, the order in which the words are read out will vary from week to week. To tailor learning to individual needs, some children will bring home individual spelling lists.

Here are some suggestions to help your child learn their spellings:

  • Look, say, cover, write, check
  • Trace, copy and replicate – a similar process to look, say, cover, write, check but is about developing automaticity and muscle memory
  • Segmentation – splitting the word into its relevant phonemes
  • Drawing around the word to show the shape – making a clear distinction in size where there are ascenders and descenders
  • Drawing a related image around the word – linking meaning to tricky or technical words so that they become more memorable
  • Words without vowels – taking the vowels out of spellings and asking your child to insert them
  • Pyramid words – writing words out a letter at a time (and then reversing the process so that you end up with a diamond)
  • Clapping and counting to identify the syllables
  • Rainbow writing – using coloured pencils to highlight the tricky parts of a word
  • Saying the word in a funny way – for example, pronouncing the ‘silent’ letters in a word

Year 4 Autumn 2 Term IXL and times table Homework

Below is an outline of the set homework skills we would like your child to practice over this half term. A suggested amount of time to spend on the two/three skills on IXL each week is 10-15 minutes. You should notice that as your child answers more questions correctly and at a faster pace that the level of difficulty will increase, similarly if they answer problems incorrectly IXL will alter the problems to suit their understanding. We will practise all of the times tables over the year. Please encourage your child to learn them all and we will test them each week as follows.
