Welcome to Class 3 (Year 3/4)
Class Teacher - Mr. William (Billy) Hall
1:1 LSA - Mrs Lucy Huke
I have added some great Core subject links to keep you up to date with the curriculum. Furthermore, I have included some ideas for home projects so there will be plenty to do to further your knowledge of Scotland and the Scots.
If you have any questions or queries regarding work and progress over the coming weeks, please do not hesitate to contact me directly on my school email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have also set up a class page on ClassDojo, which is a means to communicate and share work that children have done. I can see everything that is sent and parents' emails have to be used to register a pupil. It will be an easier way for children to ask me questions and to show what they have been doing during the time away.
The website is: https://www.classdojo.com/
Our current class log-in code is: WTXRKR
LOGIN last updated 3.4.20. Please try and login within 48 hours. The code will only need to be used the first time you login. NOTE: You will need to login as a student, not a parent. I will be looking to set up the parental login in soon.
Please ask if you have any other questions.
IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY DONE SO, PLEASE LOGIN TO CLASS DOJO AND UPLOAD SOME OF THE CHILDREN'S WORK. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN UP TO!
WC 30/03/2020 - Class 3 would be focused on;
Reading Comprehension - Retrieval and Inference
Writing - Persuasive texts
Maths - Fractions recap, Y4 Decimals
Science - States of Matter (Solids, Liquids and Gases)
Topic - Scottish Raids, Why did they raid England?
The following links provide really good question/answer based work for every individual learning objective in core subjects for Years 3 & 4.
Sadly, being so useful, the website only allows a certain level of access. However, for a Family Membership of £12.99 per month, you can have access to both English and Maths resources from Reception to Year 13! This is refundable, if after 30 days you are not happy with the product. This decision would be up to individual families, but a good longer term investment.
Oxford Reading Buddy and Times Table Rockstars
With the current situation and possible school closures, please continue to use Oxford Reading Buddies and Times Table Rockstars.
Each child in Class 3 has been provided with a login for both Oxford Reading Buddies and Times Table Rockstars. In an effort to make it easier to remember, both logins are the same.
We would like children to be logging on regularly to both as it will help them to progress in both their reading and times tables. If you have any questions regarding either site, please email me.
Welcome back Class 3! I hope you had a thoroughly enjoyable and fun-filled Christmas break!
Our new topic for Term 3 and 4 follows on from our incredibly interesting Roman topic to looking at what happened when the Romans left Britain and the subsequent invasions of the Scots! Our topic will revolve around studying the history, geography and people of Scotland. We are reading 'The Pictish Child' by Jane Yolen, a fascinating tale of time travel, magic and mystery in the heart of post-Roman Scotland.
These two terms are very busy for Class 3 and will include many different activities, including our annual 'Dance Their Socks Off' show at the Weston Playhouse! Stay tuned for information regarding any extra-curricular activities and trips!
Please find useful links towards to the bottom of the page.
DANCE THEIR SOCKS OFF INFORMATION
This project will involve the children choreographing their own dance linked to a theme which the schools in the local cluster will share. This year it is all based on the theme of ‘Tokyo 2020’. The children will be given three fully funded sessions with a dance specialist, leading up to their performance.
We hope all members of Class 3 will be able to take part on the night. If your child has any difficulty with availability for the performance, please let Mr. Hall know as far in advance as you can.
Our performance and morning dress rehearsal will take place on Monday 9th March 2020 at the Weston Playhouse. Friends and family are invited to buy tickets to watch this exciting evening and celebrate the children’s hard work.
Tickets are now available via the online box office at www.theplayhouse.co.uk and from the box office directly (01934 645544) between 10am and 5pm from Mon-Sat. We would strongly advise that you order tickets well in advance as the event has sold out in previous years. Unfortunately, the school is not given an allocation so it is up to parents/carers to organise their own tickets.
A further letter with exact timings and requirements for the day will be sent out before the event.
