Welcome to Class 3/4 - Mrs Hallsworth

Class 3 / 4

PE Kits: PE lessons will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday and we will be focusing on games and personal fitness followed by dance. We will aim to be outside for PE lessons for as long as the weather allows so your child can wear trainers if they wish. When we move into the hall for our lessons the children require black pumps. PE kits will be sent home to be washed at half term.  Kits and shoes should be named. 

Reading: Children should be listened to read out loud at least 3 times a week and this should be noted in the planner. Please work on asking the children questions about what they have read and how the characters may be feeling and authors intent. Children should be reading school books from the correct coloured band but may also wish to read a book of interest from home. Books are also set on Bug Club. Please find log in details in your child’s planner.

Focus on times tables this term is consolidating 2,5 and 10 and moving on to 3,4 and 8 x tables for Year 3’s and all other tables for Year 4 children (up to 12x12). All children in Year 3 and 4 will be given an additional homework activity linked to our topic of the Ancient Egyptians. Please look for this information being sent home.
