Hello! A big welcome back to Kestrels class!
Take a look around our class page to see all of the exciting things that we are learning each term.
Each child has a home reading diary and a two books, one is matched to your child's reading ability and one will be a free choice book for sharing. Please read the book with your child at least three times per week (they will then earn a loop on their reading chain. Who will make the longest chain?). Please also remember that your username and password for Reading Eggs will be in your child's reading diary and logging into this gives your child a range of reading activities, including an extensive library of books tailored to their needs. We will be starting a Bring or Borrow a Book this term so children can share reading that they enjoy at home with others in their own class.
There will also be a TT Rockstars login where you can practice your multiplication and division knowledge.
Alternatively practice your maths skills using 'Hit The Button' supporting your child with addition and subtraction, number bonds, doubling and halving.
Children will be given a new set of spellings weekly which focuses and recaps the spelling pattern that they have been learning that week with common exception words. We have a weekly spelling quiz taking place on Fridays. We are looking for superstars aiming for 10/10 which awards them points towards their house team!
Children will also be given a homework booklet for the term and is due in every Friday so we can see how many points your child has earned for some fabulous prizes!
Please can you make sure that your child completes the fun activities set, signed off and is returned to Kestrels Class on a Friday.
PE will be on a Tuesday and a Thursday so please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on these days and that everything is clearly labelled. The first session of swimming for Year Four children will be Thursday 23rd September. There will be a letter with information and a permission form sent out before this date.
Please can your child brings in a water bottle containing water and please make sure it is clearly labelled.
If you have any questions please phone the school and ask to speak with myself (Mrs Bowler) or Mr Tegart and Mrs Cummins (TAs).
Here are some websites that you can use to support Reading, English and Maths knowledge.
