Welcome to Term 1 - our topic this term is:


We Will Rock You




PE - Wednesday & Thursday.  Please wear PE kit to school on those days.

Reading Books - children will be given the opportunity to change their home reading books once a week on a Tuesday.

Snacks - Please bring a full water bottle and a healthy snack for breaktime each day

Forest Friday - please check the weekly newsletter for Forest Friday dates. 



Details of each week's homework will be on the class story of Class Dojo each week. 

Reading - Please read together at least three times a week and record in the reading record book. Children can record their own reading in their yellow diary, this can include school and home reading books. The focus should be fluency, expression and comprehension.  

Spelling - For the majority of the class, we have a new scheme in school which follows a fortnightly pattern and uses an investigative approach.  

Year 3/4 words - the children will be introduced to these over two years in class focusing on the areas of the word that are difficult or tricky to remember. This list will be sent home later in the year as appropriate. 
The children may also be set spelling and grammar tasks on spag.com from time to time. 

Maths - a mathematics task will be set most weeks using either Mathletics or Purple Mash.  Our times table for Term 1 is 3 x table and related division facts with a focus on quick recall. There are times table games and songs on both of the above platforms for practice.
