Our Teacher: Mr Taylor
Learning Assistants: Miss M Marlor and Mrs L Greaves.
In our class there are 15 Year 3 children and 15 Year 4 children.
In the classroom we all have our seats which are set up in the best way to support us while keeping us safe. Our walls all have useful information to aid us with our mathematics and grammar. We also have a range of different resources which we use on a daily basis to enhance our learning. During all our different lessons we also like to use the outside environment to take our learning outside of the classroom.
In our class we do lots of different learning. We do small focussed group learning, independent learning, and learning all together. This helps us to do our best and enjoy being in our class.
In the morning we enter to complete handwriting and then start Guided Reading. We then move on to Mathematics and then Topic. Topic time includes subjects such as Science, P.E, Art, Computing, Geography and History. English is taught through these topics. We continue Topic in the afternoons and may take part in additional PE activities or swimming. On Tuesday mornings we also learn RE during class worship.
Curriculum Long Term Planning
Things to Remember
Planners must be in school every day and signed at the end of each week by a parent/carer. Any notes that you may have for a member of staff can be written in as they are checked daily. These are also used as a reading record to log when you have read with your child at home. The children can write in when they have read their book by themselves, however it must be signed by an adult.
Monday afternoon swimming.
Wednesday afternoon PE.
They will take part in two PE lessons each week. One lesson with a focus on throwing and catching where they will learn how to throw and catch a ball while both stationary and on the move. They will also develop tagging and sidestepping as well as making tactical decisions. The children will also be swimming every week where they will be learning to swim competently, confidently and proficiently using a range of strokes in order to keep themselves safe in different water-based situations.
It is important that pupils have their PE kits in school at all times during the week as there may be opportunities for further PE lessons as the weather improves outside.
Homework will be sent out half-termly to be returned to school each week to be checked. We will also be sending home weekly spellings and multiplications to learn and practice every Friday.
Guided Reading takes place daily in Class 3 but pupils will still be given a home reading book to read with parents and carers. Pupils must inform an adult in the class when their reading book needs changing, and this will be checked and a new one issued. Every day children may be expected to read each day so school reading diaries should be in bags.
