Hazel Class - Year 3/4
Welcome to Hazel Class
Welcome to Hazel Class.
Our class teachers are Mrs Bowman and Ms McPherson. Mrs Bowman teaches us on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday am and Ms McPherson teaches us on a Wednesday pm, Thursday and Friday. Mrs Roberts works with us every day. A coach from the Lancashire School Sports Partnership teach us on a Monday afternoon, and Mrs Culshaw teaches Spanish on a Wednesday.
Being in Y3/4 means changes in routine for year 3 which our year 4 children can help with.
Year 4 will be stretching and developing skills learnt in year 3.
Take a look at some of the work we will be completing this term:
English - This half term we will be reading 'The Egyptian Cinderella'. We will also be reading some poetry and non-faction texts.
Maths - We will be developing our mathematical skills in place value and mathematical functions. One very useful skill we practice in Year 3 and 4 is our times tables. Hopefully Year 3 should already know our 2's, 3's 5's, and 10's. By the end of the year we should know our 4's, 6's and 8's! By the end of Year 4 should also know all their times tables to 12x12 within 6 seconds. We will be developing our problem solving skills and not just solving one part of a problem but taking several steps to find an answer. We are starting to become more independent in our problem solving and deciding ourselves which steps to take.
History - This half term we will be finding out about Egyptians
Science - Our topic this half term is about how our digestive system.
P.E and Games - We have a sports coach to take our dance lessons on a Monday afternoon. We will also have a PE session on a Wednesday afternoon. We need to wear our PE kit to school on both of these days.
Music - Year 3 will be continuing to develop their music skills by using their music skills learnt last year to enjoy, compose and perform pieces of music. Year 4 will have the opportunity to start to learn a brass instrument with a teacher from the Lancashire Music Service.
PHSE - In PSHE, it is all about new starts.
Important days to remember:
Homework - We will update this ASAP.
Reading Books - Reading books will be sent home from school. The children can keep these at home and not return them until they have finished them. They will receive a reading record which needs to be in school each day so we can award dojo points for fantastic reading.
Spellings and Times Tables - Spellings are put on class dojo on a Friday, ready for our test on the Friday. We have a spelling or phonics sessions during the week. The spellings are also on spelling frame website although not all the words are always available on this website, so please check dojo for the full list.
We are both super excited to be you child's teachers this year. Please contact us if you have any concerns through class Dojo.
