Robin Year 3/4

Welcome to Robin Class! 

 

Miss Corner, Mrs Bowes and Mrs Francis are delighted to welcome you to our class page!

In the event of school closure or self-isolation, please use this page to keep track of work that the children can do at home.

 

Children have been given all of their relevant passwords again so that they can access all areas at home. These include: Google Classroom, TT Rockstars, My Maths and Purple Mash.

 

Children should spend at least 10 minutes a day on TT Rockstars and should read for at least 30 minutes every day. Most of their written tasks will be set on Google Classroom - children should read the instructions given on the task and then share them with me when completed.

 

Children should check their school Gmail account regularly to see if I have been in contact or invited them to a Hangout to discuss their learning.

 

Please see the link below for specific tasks children can do.

Easter Holidays

 

I have attached a page of optional Easter Activities. There are a range of fun activities, which can be completed as a family or individually. This document will also be shared on the GoogleDrive. I will be continuing to read our class story twice a day and arranging small group hangouts but if you want to have a complete break from school, it's up to you. I hope you are keeping safe at home and enjoying spending some quality time together as a family. Have fun! 

Reading

We encourage the children to read every day. When you have listened to your child read, please ensure you write this down in their reading records as these are collected in and checked once a week.  We understand that in Robin Class, not all children want to read to an adult but please still ask them questions about their book to practise their comprehension skills and note down these conversations in their reading records as well. If children are reading alone, we encourage them to record this in their reading records themselves.

 

Children are expected to read often to develop fluency and we aim to listen to every child read at least once a week so they need to have their reading book and reading record in school every day. In order to develop independence, the children are expected to take responsibility for changing their own reading books during registration time.

 

Spellings

Spellings will be given out on a Monday and children will be tested on these spellings on the following Monday. The spelling words are taken from the year 3/4 spelling list and the whole list is on the Robin Class page. Children should be able to spell every word on this list by the end of year 4. There are different ways to approach spelling practise which we look at in class and there are some suggestions on the class page. Please come and ask if you want to know how best to support your child with learning their spellings. Children should bring their Spelling Journal into school every day.

 

PE

PE days change throughout the year so please make sure PE kits are in school all week. Please ensure that children have their PE kits named and that they are weather appropriate i.e. tracksuit bottoms and sweatshirts in the colder weather whilst shorts and t-shirts can be worn in the warmer weather. 

 

Topic Home Learning

As well as daily reading, spelling practise and maths work, there will also be a Topic piece of Home Learning that will be given to the children to do at the start of the topic and this will be due in the week before the end of the topic. This will be a larger piece of work that the children are encouraged to do creatively and spend a long time working on.

Throughout this year, we are having a whole class focus on times tables as children need to confidently know up to 12x12 by the end of year 4. If you would like to help your child with this, please find the multiplication challenge sheet (and answers), which we use in class, below.

Attached is a list of all the spellings that children need to be able to confidently read and write by the end of year 4. There are lots of different ways of practising spellings, I have attached some strategies that can be used to help and keep spelling practice exciting. Please let me know if you would like any additional support with this.
