Welcome Back

We hope you had a relaxing half term and are ready to get back to school for the exciting term ahead.

We will continue to learn all about the Romans and are excited to be going on a trip later on in the term to support our learning.  Details of the trip will be sent out soon.

In English we will be learning about Fairy Tales and giving them our own little twists before moving on to poetry. Spellings look at a mixture of patterns and words from the Y3/Y4 spelling list.

Children will continue to learn about fractions,  including decimal fractions.equivalent fractions and using money.  Please support their learning at home by practising times tables and talking about fractions in daily life.

P.E. continues to be on Tuesday and Wednesday. Forest School is on Wednesday with Y3 and Y4 alternating between PE and Forest School on a weekly basis.

If you would like any further information please do not hesitate to come and have a chat.

Happy New Year!

We hope you all had a wonderful break over the Christmas period. We have a very exciting term ahead of us with our new topics. In Science we will be learning about light and electricity. In our topic work we will be learning about the Romans. There are some links below if you want to start researching!  In addition, on Wednesdays we will be enjoying a Forest School session with Mrs Wilson. Years 3 & 4 will be alternating weeks in which they attend Forest School. On the weeks that your child will not be at Forest School, they will be attending a PE session instead. Make sure all children have warm PE clothes in their bags as we will be going outside. Any queries, feel free to speak with either Mrs Rogers or Mrs Janvrin.

Book Week

Wow, what a great week and yet again, time has flown! Horse Chestnut Class have all worked so hard on making an information book on Australia. I have been so impressed at how well you have worked together to create a brilliant book. You have remembered to include so many features of information writing and a special thank you to Reuben for working so hard on the glossary.

I have put a link to a brilliant website which shows lots of Dreamtime Stories so I hope you find time to explore the site.

Homework due back on Wednesday9th November

English: Complete the Spelling, grammar and punctuation questions using the glossary to help.

Maths: Complete the questions using column addition.

Spelling: Use the suffix ‘ation’

Finally, please read to an adult at least 3 times each week and record this in your reading diary.
