During Year 4, the children have a set of statutory words that they must learn to spell and understand in order to be able to write the word into a sentence.
Every few weeks, we will study some of these words and discuss their meaning, their word class (eg is it a noun? an adverb? etc), work out the tricky part of the word and begin to think of a mnemonic to help us remember how to spell the tricky part, e.g. favourite: Favourite food is our right!
Here are the words we will learn this year:
