Welcome to Year 3/4,
We are made up of three classes with Mrs Broom, Mrs Timmins and Mrs Ridgway as our teachers. We are also very lucky to have Mrs Wood and Mrs Nock supporting us in class. We are a fun, hard-working year and we are looking forward to the exciting journey ahead of us.
Useful information: PE is on a Wednesday, throughout the year children will be visiting Crestwood Secondary School for swimming lessons. Please watch out for the dates of when your child will be swimming. Children will be exploring other areas of the PE curriculum throughout the year so will need to make sure they have the correct PE kit in school every day.
Spelling: Your child is given a spelling test each week. They will be either working at the bronze, silver, gold or platinum level. They cannot move on to the next level until they have learnt all the spellings. Please find attached the spellings for both year groups.
Homework: Your child will be given a homework book which will be sent home on a Thursday and will need to be returned by the following Monday. Each term children will have a topic themed project as well as weekly literacy or numeracy tasks.
Reading: It is very important that you hear your child read as often as possible. In Year 3/4 we encourage the children to choose their own books to take home. Every Wednesday we will have our DEAR (drop everything and read) where parents are invited into our classrooms at 3pm to read with your child and help them choose a new book to read. Also keep a look out for our exciting reading competitions that will take place throughout the year.
Tuck Shop: Now that the children and in Key Stage 2 they are allowed to visit the tuck shop at break time. There will be a variety of healthy choices available including water and milk. Children will not need any more than 50p per day and this money is their responsibility.
DEAR (Drop, everything and read will take place on a Wednesday from 3pm.
