Welcome to Class 3/4!
This year Miss Whitehouse is your child’s class teacher and Mrs Thomas is the teaching assistant.
The school day starts at 8:45am and learning starts immediately after so it is vital that children arrive on time. The school day ends at 3:05pm and children will need to be collected by an adult from the door that leads onto the bottom yard.
We have just started our first topic of ‘Burps, Bottoms and Bile’. This topic will see the children become scientists as they learn about the digestive system.
In Science, we will explore what a balanced diet is and how we should fuel our bodies. We will look into how plants and animals survive through food chains. Also, we will learn about teeth and hopefully get a visit from a local dentist! In Design and Technology, we will create a new snack based on what we learnt through our Science work about food.
PE – Our PE day is every Tuesday. Please ensure that children have both an indoor and an outdoor PE kit. We recommend that your child has their PE kit in school all week, just in case we manage to sneak an extra session in!
Homework – Homework is handed out every Friday (when possible) and is due in by the following Wednesday. Please ensure that you do your homework at home as it ensures that you get extra practice. It’s so important! Homework will consist of spellings, reading and timetable practice using TT-Rockstars. Children will also have a termly topic project to complete which hopefully will encourage them to be imaginative and creative.
Reading – We encourage your child to read at least 10 minutes a day. Each time they read at home they are rewarded with a sticker on their reading chart.
