Welcome back! I hope you have all had a fabulous summer and are ready for the new academic year. I am so excited to be working with your children again and seeing how far they have come since year 2.
I share my teaching duties with Mrs Robinson again this year whilst I continue my work across school as the SENDCo.
We have lots of exciting things planned for the term.
If you need to contact me, please press the button on the right and start your message with FAO Miss Riley or leave a message for me in the office. I will do my best to contact you as soon as I can.
PE is on Mondays and Thursdays. Please ensure that your child brings the correct PE kit, which can be viewed here.
Spellings will be given out on Fridays and will be tested the following Friday. I will also upload them to this page. The common exception words (below) are the spellings that your child is expected to know by the end of the year. However, additional words may appear in the weekly spellings to aid the learning of spelling rules.
Reading is incredibly important, and is a gateway to the rest of the curriculum. Please try to read for at least 10 minutes daily with your child. I would like to see your child’s reading record at least once per week, and books can be changed when required. If your child has chosen a book that they do not like please change it as soon as possible.
Come back to our class page regularly for updates.
Our class text is currently Beasts of OIympus by Lucy Coats. The text links fabulously with our Topic of Ancient Greeks. Initially we will be learning how to write a character description.
We will be learning about number and place value to 10 000, Addition & Subtraction within 10 000, and Multiplication & Division. We will also be developing our fluency including lots of work around our times tables in preparation for the Multiplication Check which comes later in the year (details to follow).
Our science topic for the first half term is Living Things – Groupings.
We will be deepening our understanding of the church in its widest sense, ensuring that pupils know that Christianity is a multi-cultural worldwide faith. We will look at the similarities and differences between denominations and further develop our understanding about places of worship from faiths other than Christianity
We are learning about the Ancient Greeks, answering the enquiry question, ‘Would you rather be a Greek or a Spartan?”
