School year 2023/24 is Cycle B Autumn 2 - A Typical Timetable in Owl class Autumn 1 - A Typical Timetable in Owl class English Curriculum Spelling Grammar Mathematics English Curriculum Reading – word readingPupils should be taught to:apply their growing knowledge of root words, prefixes and suffixes (etymology and morphology) as listed in – see English appendix 1 , both to read aloud and to understand the meaning of new words they meetread further exception words, noting the unusual correspondences between spelling and sound, and where these occur in the word Reading – comprehensionPupils should be taught to:develop positive attitudes to reading, and an understanding of what they read, by:listening to and discussing a wide range of fiction, poetry, plays, non-fiction and reference books or textbooksreading books that are structured in different ways and reading for a range of purposesusing dictionaries to check the meaning of words that they have readincreasing their familiarity with a wide range of books, including fairy stories, myths and legends, and retelling some of these orallyidentifying themes and conventions in a wide range of bookspreparing poems and play scripts to read aloud and to perform, showing understanding through intonation, tone, volume and actiondiscussing words and phrases that capture the reader’s interest and imaginationrecognising some different forms of poetry [for example, free verse, narrative poetry]understand what they read, in books they can read independently, by:checking that the text makes sense to them, discussing their understanding, and explaining the meaning of words in contextasking questions to improve their understanding of a textdrawing inferences such as inferring characters’ feelings, thoughts and motives from their actions, and justifying inferences with evidencepredicting what might happen from details stated and impliedidentifying main ideas drawn from more than 1 paragraph and summarising theseidentifying how language, structure, and presentation contribute to meaningretrieve and record information from non-fictionparticipate in discussion about both books that are read to them and those they can read for themselves, taking turns and listening to what others say Writing – transcriptionSpelling – see English appendix 1Pupils should be taught to:use further prefixes and suffixes and understand how to add them – see English appendix 1spell further homophonesspell words that are often misspelt – see English appendix 1place the possessive apostrophe accurately in words with regular plurals [for example, girls’, boys’] and in words with irregular plurals [for example, children’s]use the first 2 or 3 letters of a word to check its spelling in a dictionarywrite from memory simple sentences, dictated by the teacher, that include words and punctuation taught so far HandwritingPupils should be taught to:use the diagonal and horizontal strokes that are needed to join letters and understand which letters, when adjacent to one another, are best left unjoinedincrease the legibility, consistency and quality of their handwriting, [for example, by ensuring that the downstrokes of letters are parallel and equidistant, and that lines of writing are spaced sufficiently so that the ascenders and descenders of letters do not touch] Writing – compositionPupils should be taught to:plan their writing by:discussing writing similar to that which they are planning to write in order to understand and learn from its structure, vocabulary and grammardiscussing and recording ideasdraft and write by:composing and rehearsing sentences orally (including dialogue), progressively building a varied and rich vocabulary and an increasing range of sentence structures English appendix 2organising paragraphs around a themein narratives, creating settings, characters and plotin non-narrative material, using simple organisational devices [for example, headings and sub-headings]evaluate and edit by:assessing the effectiveness of their own and others’ writing and suggesting improvementsproposing changes to grammar and vocabulary to improve consistency, including the accurate use of pronouns in sentencesproofread for spelling and punctuation errorsread their own writing aloud to a group or the whole class, using appropriate intonation and controlling the tone and volume so that the meaning is clear Writing – vocabulary, grammar and punctuationPupils should be taught to:develop their understanding of the concepts set out in English appendix 2 by:extending the range of sentences with more than one clause by using a wider range of conjunctions, including: when, if, because, althoughusing the present perfect form of verbs in contrast to the past tensechoosing nouns or pronouns appropriately for clarity and cohesion and to avoid repetitionusing conjunctions, adverbs and prepositions to express time and causeusing fronted adverbialslearning the grammar for years 3 and 4 inindicate grammatical and other features by:using commas after fronted adverbialsindicating possession by using the possessive apostrophe with plural

3 and 4 Statutory Requirements Statutory requirements Rules and guidance (non-statutory)Example words (non-statutory)Adding suffixes beginning with vowel letters to words of more than one syllableIf the last syllable of a word is stressed and ends with one consonant letter which has just one vowel letter before it, the final consonant letter is doubled before any ending beginning with a vowel letter is added. The consonant letter is not doubled if the syllable is unstressed.forgetting, forgotten, beginning, beginner, prefer, preferred gardening, gardener, limiting, limited, limitationThe /ɪ/ sound spelt y elsewhere than at the end of wordsThese words should be learnt as needed.myth, gym, Egypt, pyramid, mysteryThe /ʌ/ sound spelt ouThese words should be learnt as needed.young, touch, double, trouble, countryMore prefixesMost prefixes are added to the beginning of root words without any changes in spelling, but see in– below. Like un–, the prefixes dis– and mis–have negative meanings.dis–: disappoint, disagree, disobeymis–: misbehave, mislead, misspell (mis+ spell)The prefix in– can mean both ‘not’ and ‘in’/‘into’. In the words given here it means ‘not’.in–: inactive, incorrectStatutory requirements Rules and guidance (non-statutory)Example words (non-statutory) Before a root word starting with l, in–becomes il.illegal, illegibleBefore a root word starting with m orp, in– becomes im–.immature, immortal, impossible, impatient, imperfectBefore a root word starting with r, in–becomes ir–.irregular, irrelevant, irresponsiblere– means ‘again’ or ‘back’.re–: redo, refresh, return, reappear, redecoratesub– means ‘under’.sub–: subdivide, subheading, submarine, submergeinter– means ‘between’ or ‘among’.inter–: interact, intercity, international, interrelated (inter + related)super– means ‘above’.super–: supermarket, superman, superstaranti– means ‘against’.anti–: antiseptic, anti- clockwise, antisocialauto– means ‘self’ or ‘own’.auto–: autobiography, autographThe suffix –ationThe suffix –ation is added to verbs to form nouns. The rules already learnt still apply.information, adoration, sensation, preparation, admirationThe suffix –lyThe suffix –ly is added to an adjective to form an adverb. The rules already learnt still apply.The suffix –ly starts with a consonant letter, so it is added straight on to most root words.sadly, completely, usually (usual + ly), finally (final + ly), comically (comical+ ly)Statutory requirements Rules and guidance (non-statutory)Example words (non-statutory) Exceptions:(1) If the root word ends in –y with a consonant letter before it, the y is changed to i, but only if the root word has more than one syllable.happily, angrily(2) If the root word ends with –le, the–le is changed to –ly.gently, simply, humbly, nobly(3) If the root word ends with –ic,–ally is added rather than just –ly, except in the word publicly.basically, frantically, dramatically(4) The words truly, duly, wholly. Words with endings sounding like /ʒə/ or/tʃə/The ending sounding like /ʒə/ is always spelt –sure.The ending sounding like /tʃə/ is often spelt –ture, but check that the word is not a root word ending in(t)ch with an er ending – e.g.teacher, catcher, richer, stretcher.measure, treasure, pleasure, enclosurecreature, furniture, picture, nature, adventureEndings which sound like /ʒən/If the ending sounds like /ʒən/, it is spelt as –sion.division, invasion, confusion, decision, collision, televisionThe suffix –ousSometimes the root word is obvious and the usual rules apply for adding suffixes beginning with vowel letters.Sometimes there is no obvious root word.–our is changed to –or before –ousis added.A final ‘e’ of the root word must be kept if the /dʒ/ sound of ‘g’ is to be kept.If there is an /i:/ sound before the–ous ending, it is usually spelt as i, but a few words have e.poisonous, dangerous, mountainous, famous, varioustremendous, enormous, jealoushumorous, glamorous, vigorouscourageous, outrageous serious, obvious, curioushideous, spontaneous, courteousStatutory requirements Rules and guidance (non-statutory)Example words (non-statutory)Endings which sound like /ʃən/, spelt –tion,–sion, –ssion, –cianStrictly speaking, the suffixes are – ion and –ian. Clues about whether to put t, s, ss or c before these suffixes often come from the last letter or letters of the root word.–tion is the most common spelling. It is used if the root word ends in t or te.–ssion is used if the root word ends in ss or –mit. –sion is used if the root word ends ind or se.Exceptions: attend – attention, intend – intention.–cian is used if the root word ends inc or cs. invention, injection, action, hesitation, completionexpression, discussion, confession, permission, admissionexpansion, extension, comprehension, tension musician, electrician, magician, politician, mathematicianWords with the /k/ sound spelt ch (Greek in origin) scheme, chorus, chemist, echo, characterWords with the /ʃ/ sound spelt ch(mostly French in origin) chef, chalet, machine, brochureWords ending with the /g/ sound spelt – gue and the /k/ sound spelt –que (French in origin) league, tongue, antique, uniqueWords with the /s/ sound spelt sc (Latin in origin)In the Latin words from which these words come, the Romans probably pronounced the c and the k as two sounds rather than one – /s/ /k/.science, scene, discipline, fascinate, crescentWords with the /eɪ/ sound spelt ei, eigh, or ey vein, weigh, eight, neighbour, they, obeyStatutory requirements Rules and guidance (non-statutory)Example words (non-statutory)Possessive apostrophe with plural wordsThe apostrophe is placed after the plural form of the word; –s is not added if the plural already ends in–s, but is added if the plural does not end in –s (i.e. is an irregular plural –e.g. children’s).girls’, boys’, babies’, children’s, men’s, mice’s(Note: singular proper nouns ending in an s use the ’s suffix e.g.Cyprus’s population)Homophones and near-homophones accept/except, affect/effect, ball/bawl, berry/bury, brake/break, fair/fare, grate/great, groan/grown, here/hear, heel/heal/he’ll, knot/not, mail/male, main/mane, meat/meet, medal/meddle, missed/mist, peace/piece, plain/plane, rain/rein/reign, scene/seen, weather/whether, whose/who’s Grammar The two documents below give details of the specific grammar knowledge required in each year group.Year 3 GrammarYear 4 Grammar Mathematics The links below outline our written calculations policyCalculation-policyNumber and Place valuePupils should be taught to: count from 0 in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100;
