Welcome to Chough Class!
In Chough Class (Choughs are the black birds in our school emblem), we have all of the Year 3 and 4 children. Our teacher is Miss Stobbart and our teaching assistants are Mrs Jones and Mrs Blake. We have a lovely classroom with large windows looking out over the Church.
Welcome back to Term 4. We are looking forward to learning lots about Crime and Punishment through the ages this term! If you have any questions or queries, please don’t hesitate to pop in and see us.
Our termly topics are detailed in our curriculum map.
All children will have a homework book. A homework grid of tasks will be handed out at the beginning of each term. It is expected that Year 3 children will choose at least one task from the grid to complete each week. Year 4 children will be expected to complete two tasks from the grid each week.
All children are also expected to read on a daily basis, learn their weekly spellings and practise their times tables. Whilst we focus on a particular times table at school, it is really beneficial if children can practice all times tables from 2-12 at home.
Homework due in every Monday and books returned to child every Wednesday.
Spellings given out and tested on Fridays
CHOUGH CLASS SPELLINGS NEW – Our spelling programme has changed this term – the new list will be sent home with the children and this one is also up to date.
All children will have a green Reading Record Book which should be kept in their book bag. All children will be expected to change their books and fill in their reading records independently. However, if you have queries about their books please do not hesitate to pop in and ask.
I would expect all children to be reading at home with an adult for a minimum of 20 minutes most evenings.
Please can you make sure that P.E. kits are available in school all week. We will be taking part in Forest School on Tuesdays and PE sessions on Thursdays.
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.
All children have a login for TT rock stars. However, this is on a trial until mid-November before we decide whether to commit to purchasing the full programme. Please let us know any feedback on the programme and how engaging it has been for your children.
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.
