Welcome to Year 3/4!
Hello and welcome to Year 3/4.
Our class is made up of a collection of wonderful children who are taught by Mrs Wood and supported during the week by Mrs Davey, Mrs Smithies and Miss Hennesey.
Throughout the year we will build on our skills in resilience, independence, teamwork, motivation, communication and self-esteem and self- confidence in order to reach our goals.
Your child will be expected to bring their reading book and book bag home everyday and return it to school the following morning. Your child might read to a sibling, a grandparent, to you or to themselves a range of different texts such as stories, newspapers, poems and non-fiction books. It is important to read to build up their understanding skill and their reading stamina.
On a Tuesday and a Thursday, your child will bring home their spelling journal to practise the spellings they have been learning in class. You can help them in learning their spellings by playing short games such as hangman or testing them. Lots of repetition is needed in order for them to learn their spellings.
On a Friday homework will be sent home in their homework journal. This will be a piece of English and/or Maths homework revising what they have learnt in class. They will be given clear instructions before they leave school, but if they struggle please write a note in their homework diary and encourage them to talk to a member of staff in the classroom. Your child is also welcome to attend homework club every Wednesday after school until 4:30pm.
Year 3/4 have PE on a Wednesday afternoon and are expected to have a full PE kit in school for their lessons.
