Sitting in the Sensory Garden, Class 3 enjoyed listening to the class book, The Gorilla who wanted to Grow up by Jill Tomlinson. It was lovely to hear the windchimes, watch the wildlife and listen to the waterfall.
Our Class Noticeboard
Spellings and maths homework will be added to these books on a Friday each week and the children will bring the book home that night.
Books should stay at home during the week, so the spellings can be revised and maths completed with support at home.
A spelling test is held each Friday morning, which is recorded in your child's spelling exercise book at school. You will see their score in an 'I've achieved...... this week' sticker in their homebook books.
Maths homework will be viewed but not marked. Any misconceptions or struggles with it will be picked up in class time, as the work set is generally an extension of class work that week and the children will have encountered similar challenges then. The homework for maths should be seen as an opportunity to practice and consolidate previous knowledge learnt.
The children will also receive an optional menu from which to choose a creative homework project.
PE will be held every Tuesday afternoon. Kit should always be in school.
Your child will be tested twice a week on a Tuesday and a Thursday morning via a written test. The testing has been designed to build confidence gradually over several weeks.
If support and intervention is needed, this will be provided instead of the test.
Our aim is to support your child to achieve the National Curriculum requirement of all Year 4 children being able to recall instantly their times tables up to x12 by the end of that year. Your support at home in learning these would be appreciated.
Thank you to those that send in signed reading records everyday, we could however be much higher in our regular reader numbers.
Please remember to record when your child reads in their record book. They are awarded a green token each time they read at home, this is worth two of the usual house points. It's very exciting for them when these are handed out.
Reading is a life skill and hugely rewarding for your child as it helps to boost their overall attainment in school.
