be given out every Friday and should be returned on the following Thursday. The
work helps your child to reinforce what we have learnt during the day/week and
deepen their understanding.
We Love Reading!
In Year 3/4, we have been
learning how to run our own Guided Reading groups with Reciprocal Reading. It
encourages children to
think about their own thought processes and be actively involved and boosts their confidence. The children work in groups and take turns to be the Big Boss, Predictor, Clarifier, Questioner and Summariser.
In Science this term, the children have been learning all about volcanoes
and earthquakes. We have investigated how volcanoes are created, where they
are located and the terminology involved.
As there are
no volcanoes in Runcorn … we will be attempting to create our
own volcanic explosions!
We will also focus on Best of British and Science topics in the upcoming term.

Please try this website below. It is organised into different age levels (tabs at the top) and then into different topics.
Most games have a variety of levels so you can choose the one that suits.
Playing games is the best way to help your child learn their table facts by heart.
We learn the tables in this order...
x2s, x5s, x10s, x3s, x4s, x8s
We believe it is really important
that we consult with our pupils and consider their opinions, ideas and
thoughts, to help us to evaluate what the children like about our school. Here
are a few of the children’s thoughts;
