In the national curriculum, children are required to be able to apply age related spelling patterns including sound patterns, prefixes, suffixes and common exception words.
In year 4 we teach spelling four times a week and follow the No-Nonsense Spelling programme.
Spellings will be set as homework weekly and may be linked to this week's taught spellings or be recapping skills already taught via Spelling Shed. Please check your child's reading record for their login.
Below is a list of the Year 3/4 Common Exception Words that children are expected to spell by the end of the year, alongside a copy of our No-Nonsense Spelling programme.
