A warm welcome to our new Year 3 children and welcome back to our new Year 4 children.
We are thrilled to have you back!
Below you will find information about our routines for Maple class.
Each child will have 2 reading books. They will take one home and keep one in school.
Please encourage your child to read every day at home and record it in their reading record. Please keep the book at home until it is finished. They will then be able to change it for a new one in school and the returned book will be quarantined for 72 hours before being returned to the shelf.
The children will take home their reading record on Monday each week. Please record their reading each day. They must return it on Friday so that we can see their progress and award them stickers after every 5 days of recorded reading at home. Once the reading records have been checked on Friday they will be quarantined in school until the following Monday. You may record any reading from the weekend when they bring their Reading Record home on Monday.
Homework will be set each Monday and should be completed by the following Monday.
It will consist of spellings to learn and a Maths or English activity. All activities will be posted here on our class page. The children will have a username and password to access My Maths for the activities set.
Year 3 children are expected to know their 4x and 8x tables by the end of the year.
Year 4 children are expected to know all of the multiplication tables to 12x12 by the end of the year.
Please support your child through practising at home for 5 minutes each day.
Our P.E. day is - Wednesday.
