Important Class Information
This term we will have P.E. on Tuesday and Friday. It is always best to send a P.E. kit in at the beginning of the week and leave it in school until the end of the week. Black shorts or leggings, white top or t-shirt and a change of shoes.
Fruit is 20p a piece or 10p a half piece. It is easier to bring the money altogether at the beginning of the week.
Please have water bottles in school each week.
Homework and spellings will
be given out every Monday and should be returned on the following Monday. The
work helps your child to reinforce what we have learnt during the day/week and
deepen their understanding.
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.
The Ancient Egyptians
This term, as part of our topic, we will look at continents of the world. We will particularly focus on European countries and countries in Africa. The class will find out more about what life was like in Ancient Egpypt and we will complete a variety of different written pieces in our English lessons. We will also make some Egyptian art using a variety of mediums.
