Class 4 2023 - 2024

Mrs Richards

Hello everyone,

Summer 1 Information

Welcome back after the Easter holidays - I hope you had a great time and enjoyed all your Easter treats!   

Well done to everyone involved with our spring production of Wiz Wham Alakazam - you were all absolutely amazing and put on a wonderful show.  All the staff were incredibly proud and pleased of all your hard work and resilience to put on such a great performance in such a short amount of time.  A big thumbs up!

As requested, I have uploaded a document details the spelling rules and patterns plus associated words linked to the spelling for this half term.  

Curriculum information is as detailed below:

PE will now be on a Tuesday afternoon (Football with Mr Gibbons) and all Wednesday morning (Forest School with Mrs Cooper).

As for last term, you will be having Mrs Jackson to teach Spanish and ICT, and you will have Mrs Walker to teach Art and RE.

Homework:  We are now using Atom Prime for homework.  If you have forgotton your login details then you will need to reset your password using your personal email. We are unable to do that for you.  Each week, your child will get a maths, reading and grammar piece of homework.  The questions are adapted to your child's responses and there are videos and help-buttons to assist if your child is struggling.  All work set is designed to support the work that we are doing in class.

Children are also expected to read at home most days for between 10 - 20 minutes.  This will build their 'reading miles' which has multiple benefits for their Literacy plus have a positive effect on other subjects.  Please could you encourage your child to do this or, even better, read with them.  They are not too old for this and it is a great way to discuss the books that they are reading which, in turn, will help with their comprehension skills.  Please have a look at the tips on reading for pleasure at home (document below).

It is very important that your child reads books from different genres.  Here is a link to a website that lists suitable books by age but it also gives details of the genre for each book.  If your child reads similar style books by the same author, they will not be exposed to the range of vocabulary needed to progress effectively with their reading.

Multiplication Tables Check:  This is now getting very close!   I know that many of you are putting in lots of effort using TTRockstars and other online websites to make sure that you know all your times tables facts.  Your scores on our Big Times Table Quiz are improving and many of you are making great progress.  However, there is still time to get even better so for the next two months, please try to do some times table practise at least three times a week (daily if possible).  Regular practise for 10-15 minutes will definitely improve your scores and/or make your response time more swift and accurate.

As always, please feel free to contact me via email if you need advice or help with anything.
