Welcome to Chough Class!
In Chough Class (Choughs are the black birds in our school emblem), we have 14 fantastic Year 3 and 4 children! Our teacher is Mrs Meredith and our teaching assistants are Mrs Jones and Mrs Blake. We have a lovely classroom with large windows looking out over the Church.
Our termly topics are detailed in our curriculum map.
Please make sure you are completing ALL assignments on Ed Shed; you will have a spelling, Maths and Times Tables assignment every week. The Maths assignment will go back over topics covered earlier in the year, and our spelling and times table tasks will cover our current focus in school.
In addition there will be a choice of cross curricular project to chose to be completed over the term. This is to include writing and practical work and can be as creative as you like!
All children are also expected to read on a daily basis. Reading records are checked by adults in school on Fridays and children are expected to take responsibility for ensuring that their reading records are filled in every time they read with an adult.
Our weekly spellings are set using Ed Shed. Your child will be sent home with a login for Ed Shed at the beginning of Term 1. Whilst we will have timetabled sessions each week on Ed Shed in school as part of the teaching of spelling, it is beneficial for children to access this at home on a regular basis if possible. This may be in addition to other practice spelling methods, such as Look, Cover, Write, Check.
Please ensure that P.E. kits are available in school all week. In Term 5, Forest School will be on a Tuesday with Mrs Ryalls and PE will be on a Wednesday with Mr Oakley from PH Sports. Please ensure children have the correct kit on the correct day.
Hit the Button is an interactive maths game with quick fire questions on number bonds, times tables, doubling and halving, multiples, division facts and square numbers. The games which are against the clock challenge and develop a child’s mental maths skills.
The multiplication tables check programme on this website is particularly useful for our Year 4 children, who are working hard towards taking this check later in the year.
