NEWS BEFORE EASTER!
It has been a busy term and we have all worked hard on our Ancient Egypt 'Jewel of the Nile' topic....we loved Mr Egypt and still talk about how good his day was with us. We are going to write letters to him thanking him for the day and telling him what we have learnt this term!
We all hope you have a lovely Easter break and that the children do not eat too much chocolate...but I don't think that will happen!!! Just one more note, we will be starting Swimming again after Easter and so it will be on Wednesday mornings again in the school pool! As usual, we need the children to have a swimsuit/trunks, towel, flipflops and a swimming hat. If your child needs goggles, then the original letters apply but if you haven't sent a letter in allowing your child to use goggles then please do so!
See you on Tuesday 23rd April!
FIRST POST OF 2019! 25th Jan 2019
It has been a busy start to the new year and the children have been very busy with their learning including Angles and Tangrams in Maths, Explanation Texts in English and Map work in Geography.
We are very excited to welcome Mr Egypt to school on Wednesday and I know the class will all have a fascinating day! Pictures to come!
I have given the children their new spellings as part of the latest Spelling structure. It is based on their Spelling Age test results and will hopefully fit much better. I have given each child a new brown book as their spelling practice book. The spellings are in there and how they practice them is up to them and you, but I have said that if I see some great practice work, there will be rewards for them. We will do the test and give out new spellings each Friday.
I have set a new task on My Maths as well and I thank all of you who have given the children the opportunity to use My Maths at home - it really is a great resource.
I have a paper Maths Homework as well to give them which I will do on Monday. My apologies for the delay.
Have a lovely last weekend of January!
Unfortunately, swimming is cancelled this week (Weds 14th Nov) as Mrs Mayhew is away. We are hopeful that swimming will be on again as usual next week.
Reading Gladiators club is still going ahead.
Hello and welcome to Year 3 and 4 Willow Class Page for 2018-2019!
I will endeavour to update this page as often as I can with information and details of the learning that the children have been doing.
It has been a great start so far with the children settling into their new classroom, and classroom routines. We will be starting Guided Reading next week which I really enjoy teaching. Reading is so important and paramount to the progress of children's learning. Please support this by reading with your child and hearing them read as often as you can! We can always find a few minutes a day in our busy lives to hear the joy of reading!

It's been a busy week and the children have worked with lots of different teachers this week and coped very well - independence and resilience are key to learning so that is great!
We will be starting Swimming on Wednesday 3rd October and a copy of the letter is above. I have also given each child a spelling book so they can practice their spellings 3 times each and write a sentence for each spelling per week. These are from our No Nonsense Spelling work and the Y3/4 statutory word list so they will be very helpful to do. I shall be testing them on them weekly and so they will need to work on these to progress.
I am also giving them a weekly TimesTables superheroes test and they progress through completing the sheet and beating the superhero! A lot are still battling Batman but one has already moved on to HawkGirl and I hope a lot more do that in the coming weeks...a bit of timed tables practice at home also goes a long way....I used to have post-it notes around my bedroom door to practice them!
Have a great weekend
