Weekly Routines

 

Yellow class have PE on Tuesdays and Fridays. On these days, children should attend school in their PE kits. Unfortunately at the moment, there will be no swimming. Homework is given each Monday and X table tests are done every day of the week in their times tables books.

 

Children will be tested on their spellings on a Friday and given new spellings for the next week. 

Reading books and planners should be signed by adults and presented on Mondays and Thursdays. However, due to the current situation, there will be no reading books going home at present. Children will have access to reading books within the classroom.

Learn by Hearts: Your child will have been shown a learn by heart set of facts on a Friday. They need to learn the facts for the following Friday. Your child's maths teacher will test these facts for two weeks.  They will then be shown a new set of facts.

Year 3 (first week)

Year 4 (first week)

OUR TOPIC IS ...

The Romans

The children have begun their topic by sharing what they know already about the Romans and what they would like to find out.

They have then created a timeline to help them understand the chronology of the time period.  They have also found out about some of the different Roman gods and goddesses.

English: This week in English the children will continue to work on their diary writing.  They will be encouraged to use what they have learned about the 'Fantastics' in their own version of a diary.

Maths: In maths, our topic is place value and we will be revisiting 'representing number and completing our first investigative journal.'

Science:  Our topic is light. We will continue to recognise that we need light to see things and dark is the absence of light.

 

Non-core:

DT: We will be continue our DT topic of creating a Roman purse.  This week the children will finish off their Roman 'bulla' purse and practise different types of stitching.

Music: We will be practising for our Harvest festival.

French: In French we will be learning to use the question 'Comment tu t’appelle?'

PSHE: We are looking at resolving conflict.

Spellings: We are looking at different word endings.

Computing: We have been very busy again in computing! We have continued to learn how to use google classrooms and how we can hand any work that we do through this back to the teacher.

 Religion and World Views: This week, we will be comparing creation stories (Islamic and Jewish creation stories).

Children can use TTRockstars to get extra help with learning their times tables. They can battle each other and set personal challenges in order to recall their times tables faster.

Every week we focus on a times table and the children will get the chance to battle for TT Champion.

This week we are focussing on: 3x

The children also have a times table book in school
