Home reading: Children will bring their home reading book home every night. Please ensure they bring their home reading book back to school everyday! When they have read at home and had their diary signed they earn a reading raffle ticket. We also have a reader of the week for who is reading lots at home! More reading can win pupils a prize in our raffle draw each week! As a class we also work as a team, reading at home, to earn the home reading playtime reward box!
Homework: Homework is set on a Wednesday and should be completed by the following Monday. We have maths and spelling homework each week. We also send our themed topic homework out, each half term and it is also available on the school website in the Children's section. Our Maths homework is set on Sumdogs each week. These are practice tasks to revise and consolidate maths learning in school. Our spelling homework is the 'Tic Tac toe' activity choices to practise spellings. Children are to complete 3 spelling activities and parents are to sign the three activities and return the sheet on the following Monday.
Times tables: We encourage and reward everyone for practising their times tables as much as they can. These are such crucial building blocks in Yr3/4. We have the amazing online platform, TT Rockstars to practise times tables. The times tables in the 'Garage Band' are set specifically for each child, so they should not be too easy or too hard!
If your child is self-isolating at home (due to Covid symptoms or a positive Covid test result) but are well enough to continue with their schoolwork, then we will support them by providing remote learning through our online platforms and MS Teams. For detailed information on the policies and procedures we follow in such cases, please refer to our school website-key information-remote education section.
Scientists in action! Class Hawthorn have been experts at building and exploring electrical circuits. During investigating they have discovered how to create a complete circuit and the impact of adding more electrical power to a circuit. Their understanding has been amazing!
Maths outdoors! We had great fun in the sunshine practising our subtraction strategies.
National Poetry Day
To celebrate National Poetry Day, we have written and performed our own poems about life after lockdown. We have described the things we missed and the things we now appreciate!
Poems written by Ellie Summerfield and Penny Proctor
Viking Day! A class raid, a Viking saga, a weapons lesson, a Viking burial and a game of Viking chess! What an amazing day had by all!
Cloudland! We are reading this amazing book in class. We have already explored the clouds outside, predicted what the book shall be about and written some amazing diary entries as Albert!
