Primary 4 Vocabulary List

This year I have just one P4 class. And it is a lovely class 🙂 The children are humorous and surprisingly matured. I always smile when I see them walk in my home and they greet me.

We have been working hard from the very start in both writing and paper 2. Yesterday, we began with Oral. One of the areas that I have been working on with them is to improve on their vocabulary. Aside from being able to score in their vocabulary sections of paper 3. I wanted them to use more complex vocabulary in their writing.

We have completed the 4 of the Top School 2017 SA1 papers. Below is the Vocabulary List of those papers that we have completed.

How you may use the list at home:
I test them the spelling of those vocabulary words and then get them to make sentences to show me that they understand how to use those words.
