We are embarking on our new topics for the term and the children are excited and enthusiastic about what is to come - especially our history topic on ancient civilisations.
The children have been given their logins for the Times Tables Rockstars website to help them practice their - you guessed it - times tables. We had some lovely Year 4 experts to visit us to help us navigate the website and explain the different ways you can play games and earn points and coins both for the children individually and their class as a whole. Please take some time to help your children with their logins and to learn to use the resource independently, to help with their learning.
Chatterday homework has been sent home and the children are keen to earn gold stars on our class chatterday chart, to earn prizes for the extra learning that takes place at home. The children can bring in written work, photographs or messages from parents about the different tasks that have been completed - many of the children are already beginning to fill up their charts. Please encourage the children to read every night. If possible, three 20 minute reading session, signed by a grown up in reading records can also earn gold stars on the chatterday chart.
Rainforest Dave will be in school to visit us on the 26th March to help the children learn about our Geography topic on the rainforest - on this day, the children are encouraged to come dressed as rainforest explorers!
Many thanks for your continued support,
Miss Pritchard and Mrs Flute
PE will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays (sometimes weather dependent) - kits should include black shorts/leggings, trainers, house colour t-shirts and a black hoodie/jumper.
