We share all our learning on Seesaw. Please log in to your child's account to see what we're up to, make a comment or send a message.
Please see below for information about what we are learning this term.
Our Curriculum plan gives an overview of each subject and the Knowledge Organiser provides detailed information about our current History topic.
Spellings which follow a specific spelling rule will be taught in class and sent home each fortnight to be learnt. Please encourage your child to explain the rule and find other words which fit. This will help them to learn the pattern rather than just the one-off word and therefore it will become embedded.
We will also work on the Year 3 & 4 statutory word list throughout the year, but please feel free to support your child in learning these words at any point.
We would love it if your child reads to you or you read to them every night. We understand that this is not always physically possible, but if you can do at least three listens per week that would be great. It is a known fact that children's vocabulary and understanding is improved by reading every day. Please talk to your children about their reading. It should be a pleasurable experience with a mutual enjoyment of storylines and characters. Question them about their understanding and make predictions about the next chapters.
Please encourage your children to go on their TTrockstars login -they will show amazing improvement in their speed of recall.
We will be doing PE on a Wednesday and Thursday morning. Please make sure you have the appropriate school PE kit, including warm outdoor clothing and properly fitted trainers. Long hair must be tied up.
