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.
The pupils are encouraged to be independent in their learning and take a 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.
Year 3 and 4 welcome back letter and planning overview for Spring term, with timetable.
A few weeks ago it was Chinese new year,and we went to the Chinese for lunch. First we watched a mini film about Chinese new year, and how the animals got their places in the zodiac. Then we had lunch (A Chinese). After that we got a bag with a mint,a sweet,a mini bag with a 10p in it and a fortune cookie.
This was the proper week of swimming this week because last week it was the week of seeing which group we were in. Back stroke was the lesson this week. Groups one two are in the deep end and groups three and four are in the shallow end.
