This year the Foxes are being taught by Miss Miller (Class Teacher). Mr Collins is our fantastic Teaching Assistant and he is in class with us everyday. Mrs Gardiner teaches the Foxes every Monday morning. We are very friendly and invite you to pop in for a chat if you have any queries or concerns - the classroom door is open from 8.30am everyday and Miss Miller will be available to speak to until the bell goes at 8.40am!
This term our topic is 'Amazing Africa'. Children across Year 3 and 4 will have the opportunity to explore African culture through art, dance and music. We are especially looking forward to our African drumming workshop which will take place in Week 3. Our science lessons will follow on from last term's work on the human body, this time focusing on teeth and digestion. Foxes are going to continue our efforts on handwriting this term and will be practising every day. In maths, we will move on to addition and subtraction, putting our understanding of place value into context! We will be busy writing some exciting stories in Literacy, learning lots of new vocabulary and continuing our spelling scheme.
PE is every Wednesday and Friday. All children should have full PE kit in school every day. PE kit should include: house colour t-shirt, shorts or jogging bottoms, trainers or plimsolls.
Homework will be sent home every Wednesday and is due back the following Monday. Homework will consist of 7 weekly spellings as well as some maths or grammar practise.
All children should bring their Reading Record back into school every day as we use these in our Guided Reading lessons. It is important that the children read regularly at home as well as at school, recording their efforts in their Reading Records, to be checked in class.
Children should also bring a bag/ book bag into school everyday. This encourages the children to be more independent and organise their belongings, as well as transport letters and homework back and forth without them being lost or damaged.
