Y3/4: Mr Fuller's Class 2020 - 2021

Mr Fuller

Welcome to the Spring Term

Welcome to Mr Fuller's class page where you can find out more about what is happening in school and any current information. I am available before or after school if you ever have any questions or need to talk :)  

Learning Powers and Mental Health

Our learning Power this half term will be 'Concentration'where the children will learn all about how we can build concentration building strategies and how we can  focus on the task at hand. The school continues to be focused on mental health and wellbeing where every child will be given a weekly opportunity to express themselves and learn about how to build coping strategies for a range of emotions. 

Our Topic

Stig of the Dump by Clive King, Edward Ardizzone | Waterstones Stone Age Boy: Amazon.co.uk: Kitamura, Satoshi, Kitamura, Satoshi:  0787721953272: Books

Our topic this term is 'Stone Age to Iron Age'. We will immerse ourselves in this topic through History, Art, Reading and Literacy. The books we will use to aid in our learning are 'Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura'  and  'Stig of the Dump by Clive King'.  We have attached a reading list, which contains books linked to this topic. 

Our Science topic of Electricity will allow us to learn about electrical conductors, electrical safety and we will make our own electrical circuits. 

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. As mentioned previously, we have now introduced a reading list which we will upload every half term with books that are related to our current topic so that children can immerse themselves in the theme.

All children will be able to choose a book from our class library to be kept in school so they can read at opportunities during the day-which will ideally be every day! The children can also take out a book from the school library once a week on a Thursday. They are able to take this book home but it can only be returned on a Thursday. 

 In the juniors, we will introduce a class book as part of guided reading sessions where the children will have the opportunity to widen their vocabulary and deepen their understanding, as well as having independent reading time. Our Guided Reading book is 'Stig of the Dump by Clive King'

Homework

Homework will begin being set through Microsoft Teams during the Spring term. If you don't have a your login yet, please let me know so that we can get you started. In addition, the half term's spellings will be sent out at the beginning of the half term. We strongly advise children to go on Times Tables Rockstars as regularly as possible, at least once a week. 

PE

As part of our new guidelines, children will need to come to school in their PE kits on days when they have PE. They will remain in their kits all day so there is no need to send any spare uniform in. From the week beginning 4th January, our class will have PE on a Tuesday and a Thursday. The children will have Gymnastics lessons on a Tuesday and Football lessons on a Thursday. Thursday lessons will be outside, weather permitting. It is therefore important that the children come into school appropriately dressed for the weather. All other normal PE kit guidelines still apply. Please make sure hair is tied back and earrings are covered with tape or taken out.
