Welcome to Aughton Town Green Primary School Only My Best Is Good Enough For Me

Hazel Class - Year 3/4

Meet the Teacher 2022

Welcome to Hazel Class

 

Welcome to Hazel Class.    

 

Our class teachers are Mrs Peel and Mrs Bowman.  Mrs Peel teaches us on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and Mrs Bowman teaches us on a Thursday.  Mrs Rogers works with us every day. Mrs Houghton and a coach from the Lancashire School Sports Partnership teach us on a Tuesday afternoon.

 

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 Firework Maker's Daughter' by Philip Pullman and writing our own descriptions based on the characters and setting.  We will also we looking at some poetry.  Next half term we will be studying adventure stories.

 

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.

 

Geography - This half term we will be finding out about Spain and next half term we will be investigating rivers.

 

Science - Our topic this half term is changing state.  We will be investigating solids, liquids and gases.

 

Art- We will be producing artwork linked to Spanish artists including collages.

 

P.E and Games - We have a sports coach to take our outdoor games lessons on a Tuesday afternoon.   We will also have a PE session on a Friday morning.  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 glockenspeil skills learnt last term to compose and perform pieces of music.   Year 4 will continue to have the opportunity to learn a brass instrument with a teacher from the Lancashire Music Service.

 

PHSE - In PSHE we will be Understanding feelings, and why and how they lead us to behave the way we do exploring the feelings of being excited, proud, surprised, hopeful, disappointed, worried
and anxious. We will think about how we can manage our feelings and stand up for ourselves.
After half term we will be thinking about health and wellbeing.

 

Important days to remember:

 

HomeworkEvery Friday 1 piece of Literacy or Numeracy homework will be put onto the 'Deepening Understanding' website.  Homework is due in by Wednesday completing the work on the website.  It is very important that we complete our homework because it helps us practice what we have been working on in class. 

 

Reading BooksReading 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 Wednesday so we can award dojo points for fantastic reading.

 

Spellings and Times TablesSpellings are put on class dojo on a Friday, ready for our test on the Friday. Children will also be asked to practice a times table for a test on a Monday. We have a spelling or phonics sessions three times a 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.
