Y3/4: Mr Amesbury's Class 2019 - 2020

Mr Amesbury

Welcome to the SPRING Term

Welcome to Mr Amesbury’s class page where you can find ideas of how occupy yourselves and keep your brains ticking over. 

I hope everyone is safe and well. Children at home will be able to use their school logins to access home learning via the homework tab. There will be Literacy, Maths, Science and Spelling tasks uploaded. The children have been shown how to use the relevant tabs on their pages to aid their learning. There is no expectation of when this work is to be completed and it does not need to be uploaded back to us. It is there as a support to parents during this difficult time, who may be trying to work out what work their children should be doing and can be done in any order or at whatever pace your child needs.

Homework

Literacy and Numeracy homework is given out every Thursday and needs to be completed and handed in on the following Monday.

A list of spellings are sent home at the start of each half-term and the children have a spelling test each Monday on the selected words for that week.

Reading

With reading being such an important part of every child's learning, we are really encouraging all pupils to read as much as possible out of school as well as during the school day.

All children have reading books and new reading record books to show when they are reading - which is ideally every day!

To motivate all readers, the reading records are checked regularly and children receive a sticker for every 3 separate reading sessions at home which go towards our class reward system. Children are able to change their reading books at different times of the day but have to take responsibility to change their books when they know they need to. In the juniors the children read as part of a group once a week with their teacher as part of guided reading session as well as have independent reading time.

PE

We have 2  PE sessions this term.

On Monday afternoons we will  have an indoor PE session of circuits.

On Thursday afternoons we will have an outdoor session, focusing on hockey skills.

Full PE kit should always be in school during the week; (white shorts, navy t-shirt, trainers, socks, a hair bobble for girls). PLUS please ensure all kit is clearly labelled.As it is getting colder the children may want to bring something to cover their legs and outdoor trainers.

Also as part of our Physical Education programme, Year 3/4 children will be taking art in Cross country athletics every week (weather permitting).
