Reading at home reminder
It is important for you all to read at home and get your reading record signed at least 3 times a week.
Remember: It is not a race through the reading stages. You need to be improving you reading comprehension skills (answering questions) and reading aloud with expression.
With your adult, talk about and look up new words you come across and ask your adult to ask you questions from the grid in your reading diary – don’t worry about the headings; they are not levelled but grouped into question types. It is important to be able to answer what, how, and why questions. Try to explain your answers with evidence from the text. e.g I think … because in the book it says …
Enjoy reading! You can also write in books that you have read from our year 4 shelf, the library and home J

Spellings for Thursday 4.4.19
29.3.19 Star Writers – Ethan and Oliver D.
Year 4 have written some outstanding non-chronological reports on crocodiles. They included fronted adverbials, expanded noun phrases and conjunctions to vary their sentence lengths. They presented their formal writing with technical language in an engaging way. I was impressed by some of the children’s own research - it really has been a topic to get our teeth into!
29.3.19 Star Writer - Oliver D for his fabulous writing. He used technical language and his passion for this topic really shines through. He also wrote a fabulous story at home about three heroic brothers saving the rainforest from deforestation - a real writing super star!
29.3.19 Star Writer - Ethan for his determination and resilience with this piece. He has put in a lot of effort and it’s paid off. Keep up the positive attitude and hard work.

An Interview with Corky Pigeon
Thank you so much for your generosity on World Book Day - our basket of donations was overflowing. It was great to see the children recommending the books they had brought in to each other too. Mrs Bundy has put stickers into the books to show who donated each one. I'm sure younger children coming up will love to see all of your names in these books in the future. They are sat proudly on our newly cleared bookcase - so we are ready to start enjoying them.
This week at swimming, the children's behaviour and progress were complimented again. Well done!
A letter will be going out to clarify consent for pictures being uploaded to our website and then I can get adding lots more lovely pictures.
