Who's Who

Ms Furniss - classroom teacher

Mrs Goss - Learning Support Assistant 

 

Class routine

Monday

 

Tuesday Homework is due in 
Wednesday Spelling tests 
Thursday Homework given out
Friday *PE with coach 

 PE Requirements:

*Please tie  long hair back and either apply tape to earrings or take them out. 

Please have outdoor PE kit available on Fridays as we will be outside as much as possible. Correct PE kit includes white T Shirt (or a House colour one) and black shorts, white socks and trainers. If it is cold, children can wear black jogging bottoms and a sweatshirt or jumper to stay warm. 

Topics Covered this Term: 

We will be learning about Rainforests, where they are in the World and who lives there. We will earn about the different parts of a rainforest and how important it is to protect them, covering our Stewardship Value in caring for God's World. This will incorporate geography skills using atlases and understanding climates around the equator line. Any extra learning or research you can undertake with your child at home will help them in their learning at school.  

other Relevant Information:

It is very important that you read with your child at home as often as possible. Please make sure you comment and sign your child's reading record whenever you read with them. They need to bring their book to school every day, and especially on the days that we conduct our reading raffle. Similarly, your child needs to know their times tables (including division facts) by the end of Year 4, for new Government testing arrangements. Therefore, we are promoting learning our tables in class every week, as this will help them immensely, not only for when they are in Year 4, but also in their everyday maths. Please support us in helping them learn these at home regularly. 

Week Beginning 13th July 2020 – Science Enrichment Week

For our last week of school this year we thought we would end with a whole family project week as the VE celebration week was so successful. This time we have chosen Science and have a range of fun science activities and experiments that you can do together as a family. The experiments are grouped into 4 categories; cooking ingredients, water, nature and indoor/outdoor fun. They have also been organised into ¬ star, ¬¬ star and ¬¬¬ star – due to the level of difficulty or the level of adult help needed. Some include using fire! We would love to see what you all get up to, so please take lots of photos and send them to your class teacher; to share on Facebook the fun learning taking place. We have even applied to Mrs B (the science guru who has created these) for medals to present to budding scientists out there. There are many activities to choose from and we do not expect you to complete all of them! You could continue to do some throughout the summer holidays if you want. Have a fun week and we look forward to seeing lots of great science.
