Hi again Year 3/4R,
I hope you have had a good first week of learning at home. It is really important to try and stick with a routine as best you can Monday-Friday. If you have already started to follow the timetable then you will have 15 First4Maths activities left. I have also added some writing challenges bellow. There are five pages in the document so try and do one page per day. Please try to complete all the activities to the best of your ability. I have also attached a picture below showing the correct cursive letter formations, please try to practise your handwriting for 5/10 minutes per day as 'practise makes perfect'.
I am missing you all and hoping you are all keeping safe and happy,
Spring Term 2020
This term, as part of our topic, we will look at Volcanoes, Earthquakes and rainforests in Geography. In science we will be investigating rocks, soil and teeth. This will all be linked to our class read 'The Firework-Maker's Daughter' which is the story of an aspirant Firework-Maker who takes a perilous journey to find Royal Sulphur.
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 reading 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' by Phillip Pullman.
Year 3 and 4 Statutory Spelling List
By the end of Year 4 you should know all these spellings off by heart. You should also know the meaning of each word and be able to put it into a sentence.
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.
