Monday 15th July 2019
This week is a very busy week. We have the Marathon on Monday where we will be doing 18 laps of the track. Children need to come in their PE kit and bring in a water bottle.
On Thursday after school, the children will be selling the items they have made in Enterprise Week for pocket money prices.
On Friday (after the awards assembly) the children will be able to play with a toy they have brought in. Toys such as board games, teddies etc can be brought in but no electronic devices such as iPads, Kindles,Nintendo Switch or DS, mobile phones or any similar devices to these.
All children need a named water bottle that they can use in class throughout the day so they can get a drink when needed especially as the weather is getting warmer.
Homework this term will be sent out on a Monday to be returned completed the following Monday.
Spelling sentences need to be completed for all of the spellings with spelling word underlined and work presented neatly in pencil.
Spelling tests will take place on a Monday morning and times tables tests will take place fortnightly on a Friday.
By the end of the year children need to be able to spell most of the year 3/4 words and know all of the times tables including division facts.
We have now learnt all our times tables but children still need to practise to ensure fluency and speed.
Please can you focus on the times tables this term on 'Hit the Button' as we will be using the times tables in our lessons this term.
For our topic 'We are Musicians' we have been using the following two apps on the school Ipads:
Garageband (free) and Isle of Tunes (£2.99 on IPad but available free online)
