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 Tuesday 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. This term we will be looking at a vairtey of texts linked to our Ancient Eygpt topic.
Autumn Term 2019
The Ancient Egyptians
This term, as part of our topic, we will look at the history of Ancient Egypt including Egyptian Gods and Goddesses, how to mummify a body anf canopic jars. In Geography, we will look at different continents, cities in Europe and settlement along the River Nile. This will all be linked to our first class read 'Zaraffa Giraffa' which is the tale of a giraffe who is captured in Africa and sent to Paris as a gift.

By the end of Year 4, children are expected to know their timestables up to 12 x 12. Please help your child by ensuring they practise their tables regularly at home. Chanting, singing songs and writing them down are all good ways of learning tables. A good knowldeg e of tables will help your child in most areas of their Maths work, especially fractions.
Please try the websites 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.
