Year 3/4: Mrs Nicholson & Miss Buckingham
It is so good to be back at school and meet all the children again.
We hope that you had a wonderful Summer and made the most of the unseasonable weather. It has been a very hot week, but the children have all coped extremely well and tried their hardest.
This term is going to be a busy one with lots of work to cover. We are sure the children will quickly adjust to the greater work load that the year 2 curriculum requires. However, we have the excitement of the Nativity Performance to look forward to at the end of it all.
We will post weekly homework tasks here every Friday. (Starting Friday 22nd September)
Most of the homework has to be completed online using home learning programmes.
- My Maths: /Purple Mash There will be a weekly maths task set on one of these programmes
- Big Maths CLIC: Please look at the tests the children bring home each Monday and go over any errors. Please get in touch if you need some guidance!
- Spelling Shed: The children can practise their set spellings for the week.
- Reading: Please read as often as you can, but at least four times a week. The children will bring home a new sharing book every Friday. Could they please bring them in on this day to swap. Once our phonic programme begins they will bring home phonic books. For children who have finished the phonics programme please see the next paragraph.
Book Changing Day
The children are allocated a time slot to change their reading books on a Friday. They are to pick books from their ZPD range. This means the texts they are reading are at an appropriate level for them. They will be bought home on Friday night and are to be returned the following Friday. They also have books from their ZPD range in school. Whilst your child might be able to read fluently, it would be incredibly beneficial if you could read with your child, and also talk about what they have read. Some children will be coming home with a Read Write Ink book as well. They will be given this by the teacher who leads their sessions, so they may come home on a different night.
Our P.E day is Tuesday. Can children please come to school on this day in their normal uniform on the top half and blue shorts or joggers instead of school skirts and trousers on the bottom.
We look forward to working with you to support the needs of your child. If you need to speak to us, then we are always available on the playground at the end of the day, alternatively contact the office and we can arrange a time to meet.
