Here you can find information about upcoming events, weekly homework and important notices.

If you have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to come and find me on the playground at the end of the day and I would be more than happy to help.

 

 

Please ensure that your child has their "Super Six" in school: pencil, rubber, ruler, glue stick, pencil sharpener and writing pen (if they have a pen licence). Thank you.

Reading

 

Reading homework should be recorded in the children's reading record books. The children are expected to read at home at least 5 times a week. This can be a book from home or their school reading book. Reading records are collected in on a Thursday and given back on Friday and house points are awarded for completion of the reading tasks. 

Children also have log ins for the Reading Den website which they can choose to do book reviews on. 

We will sending a levelled book, assigned by their teachers, each week, unless the child is in the middle of a gripping read already! The children may also bring a book of their choice from our class reading corner to read at home.  Please note that the colour bands do not coincide with the infant school system and all books no matter the difficulty are banded in our library.

Week 12.10.20. In English this week we have been finding out how important it is to write clear instructions. We struggled to give each other instructions about how to draw! We finished the week by writing some instructions links to our topic; How To Make a Bronze Age Axe.

Week 05.10.20. During Art lessons we created Stonehenge using nets of shapes with cardboard, and also created natural jewellery and cave art.

This week in Willow Class we have celebrated Harvest Festival and made our own class video to be added to the school Harvest Festival video. We have also been learning about ordering and comparing numbers in Maths, writing Newspaper Articles in English and building Stonehenge during our Art lessons. Photos to follow when we have put it together.... 

 

We have unfortunately had to say goodbye to one of our class and wish Emma good luck as she moves schools. However, we know we will see her around, so we will try not to be too sad! 

 

Well done to everyone for bringing in a donation today and a cupcake to eat. As a class we raised almost £60!

15.09.20 Tie dye with natural colours, chronological timelines and Conker joy...

We drew pictures on our cave ceilings representing the achievements of people during The Stone Age.

Stone Age Artists!

Welcome Meeting PowerPoint. For an introductory video please see the Video Resource Centre

School Council and Eco Council. 

Well done to all of those who put themselves forward to represent the class as council members. With 14 students who wanted to volunteer, it was a very difficult decision for the class blind vote.

Well done to Ben who will represent year 3, and to Connie who will represent year 4 in Willow Class.

Times Tables

In Phase 1, all children will be learning their times tables. It is a national requirement that all children know their times tables by the end of Year 4. Year 4s will now have a national test in June where they will be tested on their times table knowledge.

The children will be working their way through each times table in order to reach ‘Reasoning Rainbow’ where they will be able to apply their times table knowledge to word problems. The times table tests are ordered as follows:

  • Titanium: number bonds to 10, 20, 100
  • Bronze: 2s, 5s, 10s, Mixed
  • Silver: 3s, 6s, Mixed
  • Gold: 4s, 8s, Mixed
  • Platinum: 7s, 9s, Mixed
  • Diamond: 11s, 12s, Mixed
  • Elite: All Mixed
  • Reasoning Rainbow

Each week the children will have a 2 minute timed test on the times table they are on, they must answer all questions correctly in order to move up to the next times table the following week. The tests include both multiplication and division to ensure they full consolidate their times table (e.g. 3x6=18 and 18÷3=6). Once they have passed each times table test on each stage they will receive a certificate for their achievements.

Please do support your children in practising their times tables at home. Here are some links which will support you with this.
