A pair of parallel lines are lines that will never ever touch or get closer / further apart. 

Perpendicular lines are two lines that meet at a right angle. 

Quadrilateral  is the name given to any four sided shape. 

Area - the space inside the shape.

 Today is your last day of home learning during this current lockdown. 

I want you to make sure that you have everything ready for Monday. You will need your pencil case packed and you bag and books. Your PE needs to be ready for our PE lesson on Tuesday Morning and you need to make sure you are ready and excited to return. 

 

TASK - I would like you to think of things that you are looking forward to when we are back in school. Write these down on small slips of paper and bring them into school with you on Monday. 

 

If you are nervous about anything you can write these down too.. - Although I hope you are all excited and know that everything will be fine when we are back at school. 

 

Now - Write down one final thing that you have done during the lockdown that you have enjoyed. Something that you can share with the class when we get back. 

 

Use the rest of your day to play relax and read, I imagine you will all be very tired on Monday after our first full day back. 

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU ALL!

 

 

 

OUR CLASS

In our class we are the persevering panthers because we always persevere and try our best. We all love a challenge and understand that making mistakes is just part of learning.

Our class teacher is Mrs Fisher and our teaching assistants are Mrs Boyer, Mrs Longley and Miss Colenutt.

 

This year I will be communicating with Parents via the Class Dojo app instead of Seesaw.

Below is a link to a tutorial for Class Dojo for parents.

Classroom Environment

We love to have fun whilst we learn in Year Three so it is not uncommon to find us working hard with music on in the background. We also love singing and dancing and put our skills to good use when we are learning our times tables. Lots of us are also part of the school choir and love preforming some of our favourite songs.

 Our PE days are Monday and Thursday please have your full indoor and outdoor kit in school for both sessions. 

Homework: You will be asked to go on TTRS and Read Theory for 5 minutes at least three times a week. You will also have our weekly spelling patterns that we learn in class. 

 

Maths 

This year the children will take park in a Times Table assessment in June. For this test the children will have to answer questions on all of their times tables within a short amount of time. As such, part of your child's home is to play on TTRS (Rockstars) at home at least three times a week. Children who play for ten minutes a day will receive a reward in class. The 'Soundcheck' section is most like the test but your child can choose to play in soundcheck, studio or garage mode. 

Rockstars logins are on your child's reading record - they have not changed from last year.

Reading

In Year 4 reading is still very important and as such your child is asked to continue reading at home as much as possible. In addition to their reading books your child can also continue to access 'Read Theory'.  A weekly prize will be given to the child use uses this platform the most.

The login information is the same as last year . Please contact me if you would like a reminder.

Viking day!

We started our day with a scavenger hunt to work out the Viking language and solve the puzzle!

Take a look at our amazing Viking poses! We even did a Viking catwalk to show off our outfits. Reuben and Mrs Longley were particularly good at that. 

We worked really hard to create our own dragon heads. We have designed these ourselves during our English lessons - inspired by 'How to Train Your Dragon'. 

Take a look at our almost finished dragon heads.
