Welcome to Sir Mo Farah Class
"Don't dream of winning, train for it."
Our teachers are Mrs Holden with Ms Palmer on a Tuesday and our teaching assistant is Mr Topping.
We look forward to working with you and your child.
We share all our wonderful learning on Seesaw and use it as a communication tool.
Please log in to your child's account to see what we're up to. It's lovely for the children to see and read your comments.
Please see below for information about what we are learning.
Our Curriculum Map gives a breakdown of the different subjects and the skills and knowledge we are covering this term.
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.
We shall begin our 'Readopoly' reading challenge.
It is a known fact that children's vocabulary and understanding is improved by reading everyday. 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.
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 will become embedded.
We shall 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 too at any point.
See below for the statutory Year 3 and 4 Word List
See below for the fortnightly spelling word lists.
Your child has a Doodlemaths account. Please encourage your child to spend a few minutes each day answering the bespoke maths questions which are tailored to their needs.
Please encourage your child to go on their TTrockstars login -they will show amazing improvement in their speed of recall which will obviously help in many areas of maths.
We will be doing PE on a Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. Please make sure you wear the appropriate school PE kit, including properly fitted trainers. Long hair must be tied up.
Star of the Week
Star of the week will be awarded each Friday and the star pupil's award is to sit at the star table and spinny chair for the following week. The pupil is allowed to bring items, photographs and pictures to decorate their star table.
I am a strong believer in the importance of daily exercise and the Daily Mile is a perfect opportunity to do this.
We shall work up to doing it everyday but please ensure your child has their trainers in school everyday.
The Daily Mile gets children out of the classroom for fifteen minutes every day to run or jog, at their own pace, with their classmates, making them fitter, healthier, and more able to concentrate in the classroom. For more information, see this website: https://thedailymile.co.uk/
