Welcome to Chough Class!
In Chough Class (Choughs are the black birds in our school emblem), we have our fantastic Year 3 and 4 children! Our teacher is Mrs Elsden and our teaching assistants are Mrs Jones and Mrs Blake. We have a lovely classroom with large windows looking out over the Church.
Homework is based on our class book and the Wonderful Wiltshire geography and science topics this term. The children are expected to complete two of the tasks – one writing task and one creative task. (You do not need to complete them all!). There is the option to a complete a project of your choice, as long as it links to our topic. When you have finished your work please bring it in to share.
Please encourage your child to read regularly for pleasure and record this in the reading records.
Times tables is really important in Chough Class and by the end of Year 4 the children should know their tables up to 12. See the maths resources below to help.
Choughs will have Forest School this term on Thursday afternoons. Please ensure that your child brings appropriate clothing to change into for the session. They will need old clothes, trainers or wellies and waterproofs, as they will go outside whatever the weather. If it is hot, they will also need a hat, sun screen (which they will need to apply independently) and a water bottle.
Chough class will have PE on Wednesdays. Please make sure your child has their kit available in school all week
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.
