Or send a message through Classdojo.
Homework will be sent out on FRIDAY and needs to be returned the following Wednesday.
It is also essential that all children read every day. This can be a mixture of you reading to them and them reading to you.
Reading at Home
Your child needs to read at home every day. They will need to record their own reading each time. Please sign each read in their Reading Journal and on their special reading bookmark so that they can be in with the chance of this term's reward - movie and hot chocolate!
Please see Classdojo for daily news and photographs.
Please find below the topic map for the Autumn Term - Term 2
Our Days in Butterworth Class:
We start the day with either a writing or maths activity. Once the children have put their bags and coats away, they independently get on with this task.
As writers this term we will be writing a holiday brochure for Skara Brae. Later in the term we will be using the book ‘Star in the Jar’ by Sam Hay to inspire our story writing.
We follow Jane Considine’s spelling scheme. These lessons consist of various spelling investigations and great activities to help the children with their spellings.
In Butterworth class we follow the letter join handwriting scheme. Every day we have a session building towards joined up handwriting.
This term both Year 3s will be finishing their addition and subtraction unit whilst Year 4s will be focusing on Area. Later in the term both year groups will be moving to multiplication and division.
In guided reading we use Bug Club and we will be looking at a range of different texts that will support our comprehension.
In R.E we are exploring the question: Has Christmas lost it’s true meaning?
During the afternoons the children will have sessions covering PE, History, Science, PSHE, Music, French, ART or Computing.
