Topic
 
This term, our topic is 'A Place in time' and we will be learning about Ancient Egypt.

Literacy

This term we will be writing non-chronological reports and linking this to our Ancient Egypt topic.

 

Reading

 We expect children to read to an adult at least 4 times a week. Please sign the diary to acknowledge that they have read and write a comment about what they noticed or enjoyed. We love to read about any additional reading they have undertaken.

Maths
 
The children will be grouped differently for maths. Year 4 will be split between Mrs Savva and Miss Hurley and Year 3 will be taught by Mr Greenwood. The Year 4 groupings are flexible and may be changed during the course of the year. There will be a new focus every week and the children will be set maths homework every Friday.
Homework
 
Every Friday, the children will receive maths  homework which is due in on the following Wednesday.  The first set of words for spelling for this term will be given out on Friday 11th January and will be due in on the following Friday.
 
If your child has difficulty completing their homework at home, we offer an after school homework club on Monday and a lunchtime homework club on Tuesdays. There is no need to sign up, just turn up if your need to complete it.
 
Homework that is not handed in on time will result in the children having to complete it at homework catch-up with Miss Thomas on a Wednesday lunchtime.
PE
 
PE will be on Mondays. Please can you ensure that your child has the correct PE kit. Plain white t-shirt or house t-shirt, navy blue or black shorts and trainers. When the weather is cold, plain dark tracksuit bottoms and a hoody. PLEASE NAME ALL CLOTHING.
 
Woodland Learning
 
Woodland learning will be on Mondays. Please can you ensure that your child has the correct kit. Long trousers, long sleeved top and wellington boots or sturdy shoes. A waterproof jacket will be needed when the weather is wet. If you have waterproof trousers these are ideal as they can be worn over PE kit, making changing easier and less to bring into school!
General
 
If you need to see your child's teacher, please arrange to see them after school or arrange a meeting with them via email. Before school is usually very busy and we want to ensure that we have sufficent time to discuss any concerns.
