Class 2

We have so much to fit into our last term in Y3/4.  This texrm we are looking at humourous stories, chronological reports, poetry, persuasive writing and stories from other cultures.  Our maths learning will include: fractions, money, time and the four operations.

We are continuing our map skills learning and in art we are focusing on 'Art in Nature' and the artist Andy Goldsworthy.

 

Let's hope this term is a marvellous one with weather to match!

We had a lot of exciting events happen in our Spring term, stating with a 'Doodlebug' visit where we learnt to draw Grommit. Very exciting.  We also had a student teacher called Miss Mckinlay who spent 8 weeks with teaching us about Myths and Legends and non-chronological reports, multiplication and division and measures.  As well as art, map skills and science.  We were sorry to see her leave.

 

We are now ready to start our Summer term where we can showcase all the skills we have learnt so far and absorb new skills!

We had lots of fun having author Gareth Baker in school. A great way to inspire our reading and writing!

We have been learning about how the Ancient Egyptians mummified their dead. Before we found out all of the gruesome details, we had a go at what we thought mummifing would be like for ourselves. It's safe to say the real mummification process is much more complicated than we first thought!

Welcome to Class Two!

I am looking forward to meeting you all and finding out the exciting things you have been doing this summer. Thank you so much for all of the hard work and support you have given to the TASC projects your children have created, this will have really helped to engage them ready for the term ahead!

This term our topic is The Egyptians and in Science we will be learning about Light and Sound. All children will be given a reading diary to record when they have been reading. It is really important that they not only read to you but that they listen to you read, this is a great way for them to model their own reading. Your child should being reading a minimum of 3 times per week, which will need to be signed by an adult in their reading records. I will collect them in and sign them on Wednesdays and reward reading with Dojos. Thank you for your support in this.

The children will have a times table test every Friday and will be told which they should be learning soon, regular practice at home is important to support their learning in school. P.E kit will be needed in school on a Monday and a Wednesday if they are going to the gym or swimming kit if they are swimming (Years 4,5 and 6 will be swimming this half term). Please ensure P.E kit consists of black shorts/bottoms, a navy blue P.E top and suitable trainers. Please name each item to avoid it getting lost.

Spellings will be taught and tested in school but you will receive some of the key year 3/4 words to support your children in learning at the beginning of each half term which will then be tested at the end of the half term.

If you need to talk to me for any reason I am available on a Monday, Wednesday and Thursdays after school so please pop in and see me. Thank you for support, I am looking forward to an exciting and successful year ahead!

 

Best wishes,

Mrs Tasker
