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! Please aim to read 4 times per week.
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 set on 'Spelling Shed' where they can complete various activities in order to practice their weekly spellings. There will be a spelling quiz each Monday to consolidate their learning.
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!
Below you will find more details about our learning this academic year 22-23.
We have been sorting foods into the correct food groups. We then used this to help us design our favourite healthy meal!
The Great Plague
Our new topic this term is 'The Great Plague'. To introduce our topic, we have had a WOW day where we have learnt lots of new information about the plague and how it affected people's lives. We made our own plague doctor masks and herbal remedies!
Walk into Waterfoot
As part of our 'Local History' topic, we have been on a walk through Waterfoot looking for clues which give us information about the history of Waterfoot. We visited The Henry Trickett Memorial, The Trickkets Arcade and Gaghills Road where Gaghills Mill once was.
