This term in English we are going to be exploring diary writing and newspaper reports, linked to our topic. 

For a headstart, you could have a go at finding some diary entries and newspaper reports to see what they are like! The book you are reading may even be written as a diary or include a newspaper report, have a look. 


Regular reading and practice of spellings are going to be vital in Year 4 in order for children to develop their vocabulary and writing skills. There are numerous resources on this page that will be useful to support your child in both reading, spelling and English overall. If you would like any more book recommendations please do not hesitate to ask.
