Year 3 and 4 2018 - 2019
Welcome To Years 3 and 4 with Miss Fletcher!
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year! It has been fantastic to see the children come back to school so enthusiastic about their learning.
The Roman Empire
Our new topic for this term is The Roman Empire. We will be researching into the impact of the Roman Empire on Britain and be delving into how the Romans lived from day to day. To support our English lessons, we will be using a couple of text such as: Roman Brit -Stinkius Maximus, The Roman Mysteries – The Secrets of Vesuvius by Caroline Lawrence and Time Hunters – Gladiators Clash by Chris Blake. During our topic lessons we will be investigating day to day life of a Roman: how they ate, how they travelled and what their houses looked like.
PE lessons will continue to take place on Wednesday and P.E kits are advised to stay in school at all times so that children are never without kit on the day.
When weather permits, P.E lessons will be outside so children will need to be prepared for this. Remember to check the school uniform lists to make sure you have everything you need for these lessons.
A big thank you to lots of parents who have been supporting their children with their reading already, so soon into the first term! We encourage the children to read a little every night. They are enthusiastic about reading and with continued encouragement at home and in school, their progress should continue. Please ensure that you are reading at home with your child a minimum of five times a week, and that you sign their reading record to indicate that they have read at home. Every three days, I stamp the books of those children who have read. While some children enjoy to read books from home, it is important that they balance these with their school reading book as this is carefully matched to their level to improve their vocabulary.
Homework will be given out on a Tuesday and is to be handed in on the following Tuesday. Homework must be completed in homework books. Homework will range from practicing their spellings of the week, in preperation for an in class spelling quiz, to short maths or reading activities that will relate to topics we have been focusing on in class. We appriacte your support in this as all the practise pays off towards their learning in the classroom.
Children are also encouraged to work on their times tables. All Year 4 children should be secure up to 12 x 12 by the end of the school year and Year 3 children will be expected to know their 2, 10, 5, 3, 4 and 8 times tables.
