Our spellings for over half term and for the following week are below. You will notice that we are now not only covering the 'spelling rule' but we are adding 4 words from our Year 3/4 word list for you to learn too. Good luck.
I hope everyone has a fantastic half-term.
Congratulations to the 21 children who achieved full marks in this week's spelling test. We had some tricky words to learn. Over the next two weeks we will be focusing on adverbs. I expect a lot more than 21 of you will get full marks this week to earn the star sticker in your Learning Journey.
Can you do these 'Challenge Words' too? Do you recognise the 'auto' prefix from last week?
There are some tricky spellings to tackle this week. I wonder who will achieve full marks in order to get another star sticker in the front of their Learning Journey. I am looking forward to finding out.
We have been thrilled with the spelling test scores for the majority of pupils over the last two weeks when we have been revising work on prefixes. There have been lots of 'full marks' so well done.
Over the next two weeks we will be studying words containing sure/ture. This is the first set of ten words to learn.
If you can score 8 or more when we do our test on Thursday, these will be the challenge words we are going to ask you to learn. Can you spot a word we've added to try and catch you out?
Finally, we mustn't forget Mrs Woodhead's spelling group who are revising the spellings for the months of the year this fortnight. They are discussing the seasons too. Work hard - we're looking forward to seeing how well you can do with these tricky spellings.
Class 4GE had great fun on Roald Dahl day. We enjoyed dressing up and looked at the Centipede's Song from James and the Giant Peach. We had a go at writing our own version where we were a class who loved to eat revolting things. See if you can spot the strangest thing we like to eat!
Class 4GE’s favourite food song
“We’ve eaten many strange and scrumptious dishes in our time,
Like wabub flesh and curried moon-cheese and green mucus cooked in slime,
And dragon’s feet - they’re really neat
When roasted in their prime.
(but don’t forget the dragon blood and a piece of stinky lime!”)
“We’ve eaten fresh fish skin from the greatest cod there are,
And scrambled snails and slugs and warthogs stewed in tar,
And pails of three headed worms and rotten butterflies
And gone off zombie guts near and far.
(Zombie guts are improved by mouldy slime from a jar.”)
“We often eat boiled cats tails. They’re grand when served beside
Minced frog’s flesh and curried worm pie. And have you ever tried
Spiced rats and mouldy cats hats
Most sizzlingly fried?
(The only trouble is that cats tails can get dried.”)
“We’re mad for slushy mud on a piece of buttered toast,
And pickled juice of ants. And then a gorgeous roast
Of goat flesh, well hung not fresh-
It costs a hundred dojos at most.
(And frog’s eyes and sour slugs can be sent to you by post.”)
“We crave the tasty shark kebabs of the North Sea for tea,
We love spider skewers. We crave spiky stewers, and surely you’ll agree
A plate of rotten banana
A super recipe.
(We hardly need mention rat stew- All the more for us if you disagree!!”)
“For dinner on our birthdays shall we tell you what we choose:
Fish gut soup and jigglebug gloop on a bed of worn out shoes-
And a rather putrid dish
Made of fox’s nose and rotting migglewish.
(The migglewish is delicious but you have to hold your nose.”)
“Now comes,” Class 4GE declare, “The reason for our speech:
These foods are rare beyond compare – some are right out of reach;
But there’s no doubt we’d go without
A million plates of each
For one small mite,
One tiny bite,
Of our troublesome times-tabling teach (Mrs Ellis!”)

This half term we have brilliant Rugby lessons delivered by the Huddersfield Giants on Thursday so all children will need their outdoor PE kit in school all week.
Our topic is the Victorians. Thank you to everyone who completed their homework. We had some fantastic learning brought back to school. Those that took part have really boosted their topic knowledge. Well done!
Children can continue to practice their TTrockstars at home and continue their journey to becoming Rock Legends!
