Mrs Noble - Learning Support Assistant
Welcome to our lovely small class of 22 children. We are a mixed class of Year 3
and Year 4 children who are all really excited about learning. We are enthusiastic,
eager and ready to work together to make wonderful things happen this year! Team
work most certainly makes the dream work!
For the first half of this term, our topic has been ‘Come to Loughborough’ where we
have explored ‘How has Loughborough changed over the years?’ This theme has
been incorporated through our English lessons where we have written an informal
letter describing a trip to Loughborough. We are currently learning about writing for
persuasion and the children will produce their own advert to persuade somebody to
visit Loughborough. For their homework, the children have been busy interviewing
family members about their memories of Loughborough. The children enjoyed
sharing their research with the class.
After the May half term, our topic will be ‘Chocolate’. We are launching our topic with
a trip to Cadbury’s World. We are all very excited about this and are looking forward
to sampling some chocolate! In our English lessons, we will be reading Roald Dahl’s
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The children will be writing setting and character
descriptions, use speech within a story and they will eventually produce their own
Class book: We are reading ‘Fing’ by David Walliams.
Mathematics.The children will be in different groups for Maths and taught by either Mrs Bailey/Mrs Kemble, Mrs Lakin, Mrs Street or Miss Walsh.
Science. Our topic for Science for this half term is ‘Sound’.
Wednesday afternoons. Wednesday afternoons. On a Wednesday afternoon up until the May half term, the children will have PE with Mr Martin and Music with Mr Welsford. After half term, we
will swap and have French with Madame Allenby and PSHE with Mrs Halford. These
lessons will continue to swap every half term to ensure consistency throughout all
four Year 3/4 classes.
PE.All of the children will have P.E on a Wednesday afternoon. On Mondays, Year 3 will have swimming lessons and Year 4 will have a P.E session. It is essential that a full PE kit is in school all week as we may need to change our days around occasionally.
Home Learning. This remains a key part of our children’s education. Home Learning tasks (Maths plus one other) will be given out on every third Friday, where children will have two weeks to complete them. We ask that during the week where no official Home Learning task is set that children can really try and focus on learning their times tables. These are such a great tool for children in Maths once they have cracked them!
