Please follow one of the links on the Year 4 home page to either Cosmic Kids, GoNoodle, PE with Joe Wickes or Smiling Minds. The choice is up to you this week! Make sure you stay fit and healthy.
Please make sure you are dedicating about 25 minutes per day to reading. Remember you can quiz at home too!
Today, we are moving onto our final spelling unit- unit 14. Like last week, we are looking at the suffix –ion. However, we are looking at words which end in ‘d.’ When a verb ends in a ‘d’ we have to swap the ‘d’ for an ‘s’ and then add ‘ion.’ This is different to last week, because it is a single ‘s’ rather than a double!
If a word ends in ‘se’ like precise, you just need to drop the ‘e’ and then add ‘ion.’
Check you understand all of these words:
expand - get bigger
precise - exact and accurate
comprehend - understand
suspend - temporarily stop/ hang from somewhere
tense - stretched tight/ unable to relax
revise- reread work
Now have a go at Unit 14- Spelling Zone.

Today we are looking at pronouns. Pronouns replace nouns.

Today we are continuing to think about our local environment. We will be creating a detailed map and key. A key is used to give information about the map. It often uses symbols or colours to show a specific area or location.
