Year 4 Autumn 2020
Composting- Devon Waste Workshop
Last week, Year 4 had a visit from the Devon Waste Team to look at the importance of the 3Rs- Reduce, Re-use and Recycle and then to look at the process of composting. An examination of compost and then a School-wide mini-beast hunt followed with a lot more variety than we might have expected on a cold autumn’s day.
Thank you to Demelza for leading a fun and interesting workshop and feel free to quiz the children on what they remember.

The 100 High Frequency Words
High frequency words are common words, words that appear very often in written texts. They are a mixture of decodable words (words that can be sounded out) and tricky / exception words (words in which the English spelling code works in an unusual or uncommon way, which means the words have to be learned and recognised by sight).
It is really important that children learn how to read these words as they will make up a large proportion of the words they will be reading in everyday texts
Practise reading, saying aloud and spelling these words together. It really will help.
