Welcome to class 3/4M's home page. We will be adding information and photographs showing some of the activities we get up to during the year.
The children have indoor P.E. this half term on a Tuesday. Could you ensure they have their shorts and plain white t shirts ready for Tuesday afternoons. It would be helpful if all kit and pupils' clothes have their names written clearly on them.
The children are asked to complete one piece of homework a week and to bring it back into school by Thursday. If they complete it earlier they can bring it in. They will be marked and returned to the children to take home each Friday. For each piece of homework they complete they will have a raffle ticket put into a jar in class and prizes will be given to those lucky enough to get picked out at the end of each half term.
Due to popular demand we have started giving the pupils ten spellings each week to learn. They will receive the words on a Monday and will be tested the following Monday. If pupils get 10 out of 10 they get an extra raffle ticket to put into the jar.
Please support your children by hearing them read as much as possible or if they are independent readers remind them to write short comments in their reading record books about what has happened in the story or something they have learnt.
This half term our topic ‘Carnival’ has an Art and Design based theme. We will be researching different carnivals from around the world, with a focus on Rio de Janeiro. The children will be developing their musical skills by performing some Samba and responding to the Carnival of the Animals musical score. The Art and Design will include designing costumes and masks, linking with our literacy skills of instructional writing.
We would like to thank Xavier's grandfather who kindly came in to share some of his expertise with the children. The children really enjoyed the experience as you can tell from the photos.
World Book Day
The children enjoyed dressing up as their favourite book characters and doing different activities linked to books and reading.
