This week in spelling, the Robins in year 4 have been learning the ‘tion’ and ‘cian’ suffix. We wrote our spellings in a pyramid to help us see the patterns and remember how to spell the words. This morning, we matched the word to the picture, any spelling we made a mistake on, w could correct in purple pen.
Don’t forget you can always review your assigned spellings on Spelling Shed!
Recently Robins had some time to reflect and find pieces of work in English they were proud of.
All pupils agreed:
Their handwriting had shown improvement.
They have improved their writing stamina. (They can now write more fluently than before.)
Most pupils agreed:
They improved their understanding of Grammar (The rules of English)
They are more confident in writing better sentences using a range of features. (Coordinating and subordinating conjunctions, fronted adverbials, expanded noun and prepositional phrases etc.)
By doing this activity, Robins were able to
Improve their skills in reading aloud. They had to make sure that they read it with feeling using intonation and appropriate volume so that the meaning is clear.
Share their learning with their table groups, partner and whole class.
After discussions Mr Lo asked if any Robins were brave enough to read aloud to the whole class. Below is a video of them. (It was lovely to see so many of us put our hands up but unfortunately time is limited but.. we will do it again!)

The Robins in Year 4 this afternoon had computing. In computing, we were using the application Hopscotch to code a character. We worked in pairs to make the character move, change colour or change size. We used a sequence of instructions to tell the character how to move and what to do.
Mr Lo, set us a challenge to make the character move in a square or rectangular shape. Working together, we managed to complete the challenge! Here are a few videos of our work.
Which coding program do you prefer Scratch or Hopscotch?
The Robins in Year 4 love spending ERIC in the library. Some of them, chose their next library book and signed them out. Some of the Robins, took the opportunity to answer the question board in the library. A few of the Robins, either read with their friends or spent some quiet time reading alone. While others asked for recommendations or discussed the books they had already read.
