Welcome to Year 3 & 4!

We are a class of 24 children with our teacher Miss Glynn.
Miss Shillabeer and Mrs Goyder support us at different times throughout the week.

Autumn Term 2:

Homework: Friday 18th November
This week, homework is linked entirely to reading. As a result, the usual homework sheets have been stuck into the children’s Reading Records. You can find a link to the homework sheet here.

Topic
During this half term, our topic will be: Tribal Tales!

Take a moment to step outside and stand quietly and still. Turn off all your technology and try to forget the modern world. Imagine this place 5000 years ago. What would you have seen? Head back to prehistoric times (it’s a long time ago) to gather berries and hunt down dinner. Unearth ancient objects and visit astonishing mystical monuments that reveal the secrets of an ancient time. Learn how the people of Britain developed over thousands of years from the Stone Age to the Roman invasion. Work as a tribe to build a seasonal monument to celebrate the coming of Spring. The sit quietly and reflect, waiting for the sunrise. What tribal tales will you have to tell?

Here is a useful sites to look at that will help inform you about prehistoric tmes:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/topics/z82hsbk 

Reading and Reading Records
The children will be expected to read every evening to aid fluency and recall. They will be provided with a Reading Record to keep a log of their reading activity, which needs to be signed by a parent or responsible adult. The records will be checked and signed daily.

Spellings
Spelling books are due in every Tuesday for spelling tests and will be sent home the same day with new spellings. It would be ideal for them to be in school daily, as the children often need them during our SPaG lessons.

Times Tables
Times table books are due in on Thursdays and will be sent home the same day, following a verbal test. 

Homework
Homework will be set every Friday and is due in every Thursday (unless stated otherwise). Homework will be an opportunity to consolidate or extend learning from that week. It may be related to our numeracy, literacy or topic work.

PE
PE kits should come into school on a Monday and go home every Friday to be washed. This term, PE will be hockey and will take place on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.

Cello
This term, the year 4s will be learning the cello. These lessons will take place every Tuesday from 2:15pm until 3pm.
