Teacher: Mrs Fidler
Dear Parents, we hope you had a lovely Christmas break. It has been great to see the children raring to go at the swimming pool today. We are sure they are going to have a fantastic week! Please find enclosed the curriculum map for Spring term 2023. Our topic this term is “Life of a Roman Soldier”. We will be learning all about the Romans and their invasion and settlement in Britain. Next term we will be shifting our attention to our “Rocks and Rumbles” topic, all about volcanoes.
Homework – the children have been sent home with the whole half term’s homework in their homework book. There will be spellings to practise using some suggested activities – please ensure your child shows evidence of this in their homework book. Times tables practice can be done on Times Tables Rockstars. If you or your child would like additional maths homework, your child also has a MyMaths logon. The Y3 and Y4 boosters in the practice section of My Maths are very useful for revision of areas your child may be struggling with. In addition there will be a quest linked to our topic which will be broken down into small chunks. Please could your child choose one of the quest questions to answer each week and bring their homework book back to school by Wednesday when there will be an opportunity to share their homework with an adult at school. We will then send the books home again on Wednesday night.
Reading – please continue to hear your child read. It makes such a difference to their reading in all curriculum areas if they are heard at home regularly. The children have reading log books and when your child has collected five signatures, they will receive a golden ticket which will be entered into a weekly draw where two pupils will have the chance to win 15 minutes of golden time.
P.E for this term will be on Thursday and Friday.
