19th September 2019 - Outdoor learning day
Along with the rest of the school, Trolls class had a fabulous day in the woods, learning a variety of new skills. These included: knots; shelter construction; fire lighting and creative rope work. We're already looking forward to our next outdoor adventure!
A message from Mr. Kundu – Term 1
Welcome back to a new school year, we hope you had a wonderful summer. I am looking forward to learning with you this term,
Our Topic until Christmas (sorry!) will be based around Changes. We will be investigating the changes that took place during the industrial revolution and how they affect our lives.
English this term will be looking at traditional tales, beginning with fables.
Spellings will be tested on a weekly basis every Friday. To begin the year, both Year Three and Year Four will be revising the spellings from the end of last year.
Spelling test scores will also be included on the ‘Week Ahead’ sheet that is sent home on Fridays.
It is important for you to see your child’s spellings, not only to see how much they scored, but also to see the progress in their writing, and perhaps spot some writing problems they are having and possibly help them at home.
Maths will see the revision of basic number skills, before progressing with new material.
There will be a times table set every week for learning or revision, which will be tested every Friday. The results for this will also be published on the ‘Week Ahead’ sheet.
There will be a piece of either Maths or English homework set each week as well. This will be set on a Friday and is due back in on Wednesday. Homework will always come back marked. This homework is designed to consolidate some of the learning from class.
There is also a list of Key recall facts we would expect a Year 3 or 4 to be learning - find it here. Please have a look and feel free to use them to support your child at home.
P.E will be on a Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure kit is labelled and present, ready for the lesson. Sport is central to our curriculum and Andy does a fantastic job of teaching the key skills the children need.
Rethea Coles will also be continuing dance with us on a Friday and we will also enjoy Music lessons on Friday afternoons.
The 'week ahead' sheet for w/c 14/10/19 can be found here.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact one of the Trolls team.
