Thank you to those parents who were able to join our virtual Coffee Morning on Monday morning. For those who weren't able to join us, attached is the powerpoint from the session, which gives an idea of the areas covered. If you have any queries, please feel free to contact me.
Weather permitting we have individual photos tomorrow (Thursday).
I will also update the page, shortly, with some photos from our trip to Ashdown last Friday.
Hope you're having a good week!
Friday 11th September 2020
We’ve had a busy and successful first full week!
We have enjoyed exploring the difference between an ordinary and extraordinary day in English and have been revisiting our place value knowledge in maths. We have also written stories inspired by music and the text ‘Once Upon an Ordinary Day’. In P.E. we have learnt some tennis skills and in class, also explored how we are all different and unique. On Friday afternoon, Mrs Glanz kindly showed us her ultra violet ‘germ’ machine which highlighted the germs on our hands before washing and after washing. This week, we will be starting work on our ‘Coming to England’ topic and will be carrying on with our place value work.
The reading diaries and log ins for Times Tables Rockstars (TTR) were sent home on Friday. Hopefully they didn’t get lost on the way home! I have asked the class to bring their reading diaries in every Friday and will endeavour to remind them on a Thursday afternoon.
Please, please, encourage your child to read at home but also practice their times tables. Quick recall of these facts will help them enormously with so many aspects of maths work.
I will start setting assignments on Spelling Shed from next week, as we are having a few technical problems with log ins. In the meantime, whilst we are doing some spelling work in class, please feel free to practice and revisit the Year 3 and Year 4 spellings from the National Curriculum which are shown below.
It’s been a long time coming! 31 children in a classroom, all at the same time. It was great to see the children so enthusiastic, talkative and receptive to their new teacher. It was also a relief to see the school come alive again.
We will be taking a gentle and gradual approach to reintroducing the routines and level of work that they have had in the past. Today we have spent some time talking about rights and needs, and how these are reflected in the classroom environment. We have also started to create some time capsules so that at the end of the school year, we can reflect on how the children have matured.
Tomorrow we will be looking at how our mindset can make a difference and the children will be doing some artwork with Mrs Wood in the afternoon.
Over the next few days, you should receive a welcome letter for the term, with details of topics, home learning expectations, PE days etc. I will also be posting a topic web to this class webpage.
I hope to be able to meet with you all, either in person or virtually, soon. Don't forget that if you need to contact me, you can do so on email@example.com or telephone the school and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Alternatively, you can use the contact form found below.
Regards, Mrs Wells
