Welcome to Beech Class Year 3/4

Breathtaking Beech

 

Our Teaching Team is:

 

Mr Betts, Miss Hall & Mrs Brougham, Mrs Moncrieff.

 

We are really excited about the year ahead. Our whole team are looking forward to working with you all; working hard but also having some fun. We will be creating lots of super memories with each and every one of you.

If you need any help or assistance please get in touch with your class teacher or school office.

 

A few things to remember:

 

 If your child requires an inhaler please ensure that they have it in school every day.

 

  • Please bring a named water bottle to school each day.
  • We enter, from 8.40am, through the main entrance and exit, at 3.30pm, through the outdoor classroom from the blue pod.
  • Please check all your clothes are labelled, especially coats and jumpers!
  • Please remember our school uniform policy

 

Please note the following days for your child to come to school ready in their PE kit.

Hair should be tied back and removes earrings before school. If it is their swimming day, could children please come in their PE kit and bring their Swimming Kit to change into. (no costumes under clothes):

Our Home Learning:

 

Check out the 'Home Learning Activities' for this term in your Home Learning Book & remember all your logins, usernames and passwords are stuck in the back! There are weekly tasks (see below) and a range of Maths, English and Topic based activities to choose from each term.

 

Weekly Tasks:

 

Spellings: 

Your current 'set' of 5 spelling words from your 'Super Spelling' booklet, which will be tested through the week.

 

Reading: 

Each time an adult listens to you read, please record this on your Booklog Bookmark and tick your home learning sheet. All reading can be recorded not just your school reading book.

Check out all the eBooks on the Activelearn website (and visit your Home page = games = rewards = Your Tree House plus Maths games!): 

ActiveLearn: Login (activelearnprimary.co.uk)

 

 

Times Tables:

Times tables will be taught in school and should also be practiced at home. Remember you can use the Times Tables Rock Stars (TTRS) website to practice.

Website: Times Tables Rock Stars (ttrockstars.com)

 

 

NOTE: The Government’s Year 4 Multiplication Check (MTC) is in mid-June.

It would be really helpful if you could support your child to master their times tables in and out of order.

The expectation is for Year 3s to know their x2, x5, x10, x3, x4 and x8 times tables and the Year 4s to know all of their times tables by June/July this year.

 

Little and often is the best way forward, such as chanting tables when walking to and from school or when travelling in the car, or you could make flashcards. There are also websites children can go on for extra multiplication/timestable practise such as Hit The Button, and the popular football challenge game – Penalty Kicks. Another useful website dedicated to timestable gives you the opportunity to practise individual tables, and has a Multiplication Tables Check area with a ‘mock’ MTC. TTRS also has a ‘mock’ MTC called Soundcheck.
