Class Teacher - Mrs L Staniland
Welcome to the Puffins class.
Welcome to Year 3/4!
We hope you've had a lovely summer and that you're looking forward to joining your new class in Term 1!
This term in English and Guided Reading, we will focus on the texts: One Plastic Bag and One World where we will learn more about how to look after our environment and keep our beach safe and clean. Our History and Geography will focus on Mablethorpe and the history of the High Street. This also links to our Design and Technology focus which is shell structures where we will be exploring recycling points within Mablethorpe and designing and create our own using paper, cardboard and other craft materials.
In Art and Design, we will enjoy creating portraits; in painting, we will develop our learning on colour mixing. We will be learning about being me in the world in PSHE. In Computing, we will be learning systems and networks. Our Spanish focus will be introductions and instructions.
In Maths, we will be learning place value, addition and subtraction and times tables this term. We will be focussing on rocks and fossils in Science. In Religion and World Views curriculum, we will focus on celebrations, why we celebrate and how people celebrate differently.
PE days in Term 1 are every Wednesday and Friday. Children will be learning invasion games with a football focus and enjoying OAA (Outdoor and Adventurous Activities) and team building. Please can children arrive at school wearing their PE kit (a black jumper or school jumper, academy PE t-shirt or a plain white t-shirt and black leggings/joggers or shorts). If your child has an after-school club with JB Sports, please can they arrive in PE kit that day. A reminder that earrings need to be removed or covered with a plaster on these days please.
Learning at Home: Homework will be set weekly on MyMaths and spellings will be sent home to learn in preparation for weekly checks. Please encourage your child to practise their multiplication tables from 2x to 12x regularly. They can use their Times Tables Rock Stars log in and www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button which will help them during Maths lessons and in preparation for the Y4 Multiplication check. Daily reading at home for pleasure will significantly benefit your child; this can be any text by different authors, as well as newspapers and magazines.
Thank you for your continued support with your child’s learning.
