Year 3/4 (Lewis) 2023 - 2024
Welcome to Lewis Class!
We are very much looking forward to teaching Lewis Class and building a strong, happy and productive team together.
Mr Meredith will teach Monday, Tuesday and a Wednesday morning and Mrs Earlam will teach Thursday and Friday.
In English this half-term our class text is ‘Egyptology’ by Dugald Steer. We are enjoying learning many interesting facts and new descriptive language.
In Maths we are looking at Number, Place Value and Shape and Measures.
Our Science unit is Animals Including Humans (teeth and digestion).
Our History topic is Ancient Egypt: we look forward to exciting, practical learning.
Every Friday Year 4 children will have Ukulele lessons to support our musical development. Year 3 children will use this time for music and singing.
French will also be taught to the whole class.
Listening to your child read aloud at home is really beneficial, so your support is greatly appreciated. Reading aloud on a regular basis supports both your child’s reading fluency and expression. We encourage children to read a range of genres, but also to read texts which they find interesting. Your child will also have the opportunity to bring Big Cat books home, which include both fiction and non-fiction, as well as poetry. This year, we are using Boom Reader to record and track your child’s reading at home and in school. Please continue to listen to your child read daily and add each read to Boom Reader. Thank you for your engagement with this new way of recording reading.
To further support your child's comprehension skills, please ask a range of questions. These can be found on your child’s bookmark. Bookmarks should be kept with your child’s reading books.
PE is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon. The children are to come in their PE kit. Please ensure that all PE kit is clearly labelled with your child’s name.
Long hair should be tied back for lessons. Jewellery should not be worn in school. This is especially important for PE.
This year, homework will be set each Friday and will focus on further developing some of the key skills. Homework will be as follows:
- Reading: Your child should read at least 5x weekly. If they meet this weekly challenge, they will receive a special ticket and be entered into the monthly prize draw and have the opportunity to win a brand new book.
- Spellings: Please see the half termly spelling sheet with the spellings for each week. Children will be tested on their weekly spellings each Friday.
- Times Tables: TT Rock Stars allows your child to test their times table ability against the clock in studio mode or practice following this week’s teacher set activity. The teacher set activity will set a different combination of times tables to focus on building your child's confidence and ability. You can log in via https://ttrockstars.com/ or by downloading the app. Login details have been sent home in a letter with your child.
Should your child have any questions/queries regarding their homework tasks, please encourage your child to ask so that additional help and support can be given.
Water Bottles and Snack
Children are permitted to bring water bottles into school. Please ensure that bottles are taken home on a daily basis for washing and are clearly labelled with your child’s name.
Children are encouraged to bring a healthy snack to eat during their morning break. As we have children with nut allergies in school, please ensure that snacks from home are nut free.
Children need to bring in their black school bags and school reading book each day.
Any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us in school or via email.
