In Chough Class (Choughs are the black birds in our school emblem), we have 14 fantastic 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.

All children will have a homework book.

In Term 4, we will not have a homework project grid. This is because you have been working so hard at home during Term 3; it will be tiring coming back to school and you will need some time to relax! Instead, we would like you to 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.

 

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.

 

Spellings

Year 3 Spelling Overview

Year 4 Spelling Overview

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.

 

P.E.
Please ensure that P.E. kits are available in school all week. In Term 2, Forest School will be on a Tuesday with Mrs Ryalls and PE will be on a Wednesday with Miss Stobbart. Please ensure children have the correct kit on the correct day.
