Year 3/4

Welcome to Year 3/4!!

(Currently 26 pupils)

 

Mrs Lyons took over as the teacher of our mixed Year 3/4 class in January.  On several mornings, Miss Steel shares the teaching of our Year 3 children, whilst Mrs Lyons concentrates on developing Year 4's skills in literacy, maths and science.  There is also additional learning support from Mrs Pickering and Mrs Whittle through the week.

 

Useful Reminders:

  • Children need their PE kit on Monday and Tuesday, but it is advisable to keep their kit on their pegs all week.
  • Swimming has now stopped for the class as of February Half Term. 
  • Homework is issued on a Thursday/Friday, and consists of Maths, Literacy and Spellings.  Homework is due in by the following Tuesday and spellings are tested the following Thursday.  
  • Please encourage your child to practise their times tables at home on a regular basis.
  • Please continue to encourage your child to read and also listen to them read at home at least twice a week.
