Welcome to Kingsland class!
Welcome to the Autumn term. We hope you’ve had a relaxing Summer holiday, and are ready to hit the ground running in our new academic year. Our main topic this term will be the Stone Age to Iron Age period of history. We will be studying: when these periods in history occurred; the life of a stone age man; the tools that people living at this time used; how farming developed; and how life changed between the stone age and iron age. Remember to check our class webpage on the school’s website for updates on what we’ve been doing in class.
PE will be on a Thursday and a Friday. Children will be developing skills in multi-skills activities, hockey, dance and netball. Please ensure pupils have the correct PE kit on those days.
Spellings are no longer sent home because we have changed our spelling policy. If you would like to work on your child’s spellings with them, please ask them to record their five chosen spellings in their reading record on Mondays. Reading at home is very important. We expect children to read daily at home and that they are heard read by an adult at home at least three times a week. Each time a child reads, please remember to make a record in their reading diary.
We always warmly welcome extra support in class, so please do not be afraid to offer to come in if you think there is something you could help with. Questions and queries about your child’s learning are also welcomed so please don’t hesitate to ask.
Mrs Cotterill and Mr Rogers
In class, we have been looking at how to use a dictionary to find the meaning of words.
Could you try and find these words :-
Here is a copy of the Darwin Values tick list that we cover in Year 3 and 4. We are creating a portfolio for children as they move through school. We are asking parents to send in photos. certificates, awards that show the new skills or activities children have taken part in. This could be photos of them on their bike, scooter, roller skates, or of them cooking or sewing. It might be charity events they have been involved in. Any questions regarding this, please ask.
