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. Mrs Pardal will be helping us on a Monday and Thursday this term. We have a lovely classroom with large windows looking out over the Church.
Please encourage your child to read regularly for pleasure and record this in their Reading Records. These will be checked every Friday and children will earn a raffle ticket if they have read on 4 or more days that week.
Every Friday, children will bring home their maths and Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation (SPAG) books. The task will be dated on the contents page and recorded in Reading Records. Children will earn a raffle ticket for each task completed and two for each task if the books are returned by Thursday!
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.
Forest School will be on Thursday 23rd June and Thursday 30th June. Please bring sun hats, sun-cream and a drinks bottle or a raincoat depending on the weather!
Chough class will have PE on Wednesdays. Please make sure your child has their kit available in school all week. We will also be swimming on Friday mornings.
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.
