Autumn Topic Words- World at War
Please see the attached vocabulary list for our new topic. This list is part of a new initiative called Word Aware that we are using in school. We thought it would be helpful to share this list so that you can use some of these words at home when discussing the topic. If your child speaks a different language at home it would be helpful to discuss and translate these words using your home language.

Reading

Daily (at least 20 mins)

Reading Record books must be brought into school every Tuesday to be checked.  We encourage children to write a reflective comment at least once a week when returning their Reading Record book to school. Children are encouraged to read aloud weekly to an adult and discuss what they have read. Children should share their opinions, inferences and/or predictions about what they read. Children are able to change their reading book whenever they need to. Children may also borrow books from the Junior Library

Grammar & Punctuation
Spelling

Set on Tuesday and tested through dictation the following week.

The word-lists for years 3 and 4 and years 5 and 6 are a mixture of words learners frequently use in their writing and those which are often misspelled. Some of the listed words may be thought of as quite challenging, however with enough practise and resilience we know you will get the hang of them!
