Years 3 and 4

The class has a two year curriculum map so that topics will not be repeated during the time the pupils are in this class. As many cross-curricular links are made as possible and often the timetable may change depending on the topics.

The National Strategies for Mathematics and Literacy are followed, and the pupils are regularly assessed against the standards. Targets are then discussed with individual pupils.

 

Welcome back, please find below our welcome back newsletter, timetable and curriculum planning for year 3 and 4 autumn term 2019.

 

Year 3 and 4 Curriculum Overview Autumn 2019 (1)

Autumn Term Newsletter on letterhead

Class Timetable Autumn 2019 year 3 and 4

The pupils are encouraged to be independent in their learning and take pride in their work.
Homework is set weekly and is mainly linked to Maths or Literacy learning objectives for that week. We expect the pupils to read each evening and to learn spellings and multiplication tables. Often homework may involve research, and support from parents is valued. Pupils who need extra help with their work are supported in the classroom whenever possible.

Moving up day – July 2019

Great fun on moving top day – our new year 3 and 4 class, finding out what they have in common.

Home Learning Wb 29062020… Keep going, you can do it!

Posted on June 28th, 2020


Good Evening :),

I hope that you have had a lovely weekend despite the unpredictable weather!

I have attached the home learning menu for this week plus some additional resources that may be useful. Hopefully there is something there for everyone as there is much more freedom of choice this week around the topics/themes the children should focus on. I realise that at this stage keeping the momentum going may be proving challenging so the opportunity for the children to learn about things that they are most interested in may help.

As always, I am available to assist with queries or concerns. Don’t hesitate to email me at hos@sandringhamwestnewton.norfolk.sch.uk. Or, if you would prefer to call, then contact the school office.

With Kind Regards,

Catherine King

Home Learning Week Beginning 15/06/2020

Posted on June 14th, 2020


Good Morning,

I hope that you have had a successful week of home learning. I have really enjoyed reading the letters that some of you have sent to Blue Peter and I will be keeping my fingers crossed that you get some badges.

I have attached this week’s home learning grid and additional resources mentioned. I have seen that some of you have had a go at Sumdog. Don’t be deterred if the questions seem challenging. I think that approximately the first 200 questions answered form a diagnostic assessment that places the children at a level that is right for them. I will set some challenges on there later today too. I have already awarded some coins to those that worked on it last week.

Have a good week and if you could drop me an email to let me know how it’s all going I would really appreciate it. Email hos@sandringhamwestnewton.norfolk.sch.uk

With Kind Regards,

Mrs King

Posted on June 7th, 2020


Good Afternoon,

I hope that you had a good first week after the half term break and that you have been able to get back into the swing of home learning. If you are facing challenges, get in touch – I am happy to try and help.

Please find attached this week’s home learning menu and a couple of resources to accompany tasks set.

I have sent Sumdog log on details out in separate emails unless you are attending school from next week, in which case I will share them in class. This online interactive learning platform gives the children the opportunity to practice Maths and English skills linked to the curriculum whilst playing games with each other. I have set some challenges which will hopefully encourage the children to get started. I can also track engagement from the teacher dashboard.

Please keep in touch and let me know how your child is getting on. It is really helpful for me to know what the children are enjoying and to keep track of how learning is going. Send your emails to hos@sandringhamwestnewton.norfolk.sch.uk.

Have a lovely week.

With kind regards,

Mrs King

Posted on May 31st, 2020


Good Evening,

I hope that you enjoyed the half term break and had the opportunity to make the most of the great weather we have been blessed with.

I have attached the home learning menu for the next week which includes routine tasks that are there every week and a few new links and ideas to keep the children busy. I have also included some boredom busters to fill a spare few minutes that you may have here and there. The Oak National Academy and Bitesize Daily Lessons are a great resource providing pre-recorded lessons for all year groups and are definitely worth a look.

As always, I love to hear what the children have been up to so do keep in touch by sending pictures and anecdotes of how things are going. I miss the class very much and I can’t believe that we are going into another half term of not seeing each other. My email address is hos@sandringhamwestnewton.norfolk.sch.uk.

Have a good week!

With Kind Regards,

Mrs King

Congratulations and Thank You

Posted on May 24th, 2020


Congratulations! You have made it through a half term of homeschooling! I have no doubt that it has thrown up some challenges a long the way but I just wanted to say thank you for supporting your children to engage with the learning set and giving me regular updates of their progress.

I don’t know what the future holds or whether we will be back together again before the end of the school year but we have planned for those first tentative steps towards reopening the school.

I’m sure most of you will want to make the most of the opportunity to relax next week but if the children are bored at any point or you are looking for something to do, I have found a couple of things that may be of interest;

Classroom Secrets has got a week of fun activities planned. Here is the link to their website; https://kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/home-learning-timetable/?selectedweek=20200522&selectedyear=eyfs&selectedday=monday#timetable

I was also emailed about a writing competition on Authorfy. The closing date is Sunday 31st May so there is still time to write something for a chance to win. Details can be found at; https://authorfy.com/masterclasses/awritelaugh/

Have a fabulous week. As always, get in touch with anything you would like to share or concerns hos@sandringhamwestnewton.norfolk.sch.uk.

With Kind Regards,

Mrs King

Such a lot of hard work…

Posted on May 17th, 2020


You guys have been working so hard! From fabulous pictures of your VE Day celebrations to poems, stories and science experiments.

It makes me so happy to see all of your pictures and the work that you have been doing. In the last week or so I have received just shy of 100!

Well done!

Mrs King 🙂

Good Evening,

I hope that you have had a good week!? Thank you for your continued support with home learning. I know (from my own experience) that it is not easy every day but you are doing a great job!

I have attached the home learning menu for this week and the timetable for the Bitesize lessons this week. Only one more week and then it is half term!

As always, get in touch with any questions or queries – hos@sandringhamwestnewton.norfolk.sch.uk.

Home Learning Week Beginning 11/05/2020

Posted on May 10th, 2020


Good Afternoon,

I hope that you were able to enjoy VE Day celebrations and make the most of the Bank Holiday.

I have attached the home learning grid for this week as well as a project set by Miss Coe as she would have been teaching the class during the summer term. There is not an expectation for you to complete all the activities from both grids. Pick the activities that capture the children’s interest. Ideally your children are completing some Maths, English and Reading each day as well as one other curriculum task. It’s great for me to receive pictures of the completed learning as I can add them to the scrap book that I am collating of the children’s achievements during this lockdown period.

All these resources will also be available on the website and if you have any queries or concerns don’t hesitate to get in touch – hos@sandringhamwestnewton.norfolk.sch.uk.

As it is important for me to hear from everyone at least once a week to check in, I will be making calls to anyone I haven’t heard from this week when I am in school tomorrow.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

With Kind Regards,

Mrs King

You have been busy bees…

Posted on May 4th, 2020


Here are the fab photos I was sent of all your hard work last week. I love seeing the pictures of you guys working super hard and home and also that fantastic work that you produce.

I am hoping to put together a scrap book so that we can reflect when we get back to school and hopefully in years to come.

I look forward to hearing what you get up to this week!

Mrs King 🙂
