​​Welcome back to a brand new school year!
A very warm welcome to year 3/4 class.
Important Class Information  

 
P.E.

This term we will have P.E. on Thursdays and Fridays. It is always best to send their in kit at the beginning of the week and leave it in school until the end.  Black shorts or  leggings, white t-shirt and a change of shoes is required.

Snack
Fruit is 20p a piece or 10p a half piece. It is easier to bring the money altogeth​er at the beginning of the week.

Please have water bottles in school each week.

Homework

Homework will 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 Lov​e Reading!​

In Year 3/4, we have b​een 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.

​​​​​​Volcanoes​​​​​​​​

In S​cience 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!
