Welcome to Year 3/4 Miss Miller's class
Summer term has arrived!!
Due to a short half term before Easter, and the fact we were rehearsing and performing our brilliant 'Robin and the Sherwood Hoodies', we did not complete all of our topic and science work. Therefore we will start the summer term completing activities about The Tudors, and Rocks and Soils in science. Once we have completed this work we will start our new topic - ‘The Romans’, and ‘Plants’ in science. Details of which can be found on the attached newsletter at the bottom of this page.
Homework is given every Monday and needs to be completed by Thursday. I would appreciate it if you could help your child to plan when he/she should spend time completing homework and encourage them to be responsible for handing it in on time. Homework consists of weekly spellings and a maths/literacy or topic activity. As well as this, it is important that your child continues to learn their times tables up to 12 x 12. The government target is that all children know all of their times tables by the end of year 4. It is also vital that your child reads every night.
Each child has a yellow homework diary in which they should record the book they are reading and anything else they need to remember. Please endeavour to sign this each week and feel free to use this diary as a channel of communication between home and school should you wish to.
The children have P.E. on both Monday and Thursday, this hasn’t changed this term, and they will need to remember their kit on these days. I should remind everybody; P.E. kit includes white or red plain T-shirts (not the polo shirt they are wearing all day), black or blue shorts and either trainers or plimsolls. No jewellery should be worn for safety reasons. P.E. is part of the curriculum and it is important for children to have their P.E. kit on the appropriate day. During the summer term we will be enjoying tennis and rounders.
It must also be noted that for the first five weeks of this term children in my class will be swimming every Friday. Details of which were sent out in a letter last half term.
