Welcome to Seahorse Class. We are a class of Year 3 and Year 4 children. Our teacher is Miss Pearson and Miss Boulton is our fabulous teaching assistant.
A piece of either Maths or English homework goes out once a week on a Wednesday and is due in the following Wednesday. Please could you support your child at home when completing homework, to ensure they have the correct pencil grip and a sharp pencil.
Spellings for the week are handed out on a Wednesday to take home and learn before their spelling test the following Wednesday. Please help your child with their practise.
Regular reading is invaluable for children. We encourage the children to take their school reading books home and to read to an adult each night. This reading practise must be recorded in their reading records. Once your child is confident with their book, they can then take their quiz on Accelerated Reader.
We will be linking our English work this half term to our topic 'Chariot Champions'. We will use the texts 'Empire's End: A Roman Story' and 'Roman Solider's Handbook' in our Guided Reading sessions. We will also use these texts as inspiration for our writing.
We will start the year by learning all about place value! Timestables will be practiced daily in school and should be practiced often at home as well.
Year 3 pupils should know their 2x, 5x, 10x, 3x, 4x, 6x and 8x.
Year 4 pupils should know all of their timestables up to 12 x 12.
To help, here are some games your children could use to practise at home.

Our first topic this year is called 'Chariot Champions'. Throughout this topic we will be travelling back in time to learn about the Romans. We will also research and design our own Roman mosaics in our Art lessons.
Our topic fact sheets give you some more information about what we will be covering throughout the topic. They can be seen here:
We have PE on Mondays and Wednesdays. On Mondays, we will have lessons with our PE coach.
