https://spellingframe.co.uk/spelling-rule/3/Year-3... - different spelling rules with games and examples.
Please read as much as possible with the children including fiction, non-fiction and poetry where possible.
To help the children you can do simple things like:
- once finished ask them to summarise what happened in the story.
- Ask them to retell it in the correct order.
- Ask them how the characters felt at certain parts of the story and why.
- Ask them to retrieve simple information - What was the address the character lived at? What time of day...?
Children in Year 4 need to be able to recall times table facts up to 12 x 12 - use youtube so children can practise different timestable songs e.g. https://www.google.com/search?q=youtube+8+timestyable+sonmgs&rlz=1C1GGRV_enGB793GB793&oq=youtube+8+timestyable+sonmgs&aqs=chrome..69i57j69i64.6008j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 - children can practise all the differnet times tables to different songs.
